Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Rinse the quinoa in a sieve under cold running water

Add the quinoa to a pot with a lid with 250ml [500ml] cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, for 18-20 min or until all the water has absorbed and the quinoa is tender

Once cooked, remove from the heat and leave to steam-dry, uncovered, until serving

2

Add the smoked paprikacayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), ground allspice and soy sauce to a plate with a generous grind of pepper and mix it together to form a paste

Add the chicken breasts and turn until well coated

3

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the coated chicken and cook for 6-7 min on each side or until cooked through (no pink meat!) – this is your spicy chicken

4

Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander, including the stalks

Trim, then slice the spring onions

Cut the lime[s] in half

Slice the red chilli[es] into rounds

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

5

Add the spinach, chopped garlic and half of the chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), chopped spring onion and coriander (save the rest for garnish!) to a food processor

Add the juice of the lime[s] with 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil, 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] water and a generous pinch of salt and give it a good mix up – this is your zingy spinach dressing

6

Cut the avocado[s] in half lengthways, around the stone[s]

Remove the stone[s] using a teaspoon

Scoop the avocado out of the skin[s] using a spoon and slice it finely, lengthways

7

Drain and rinse the black beans

Once the quinoa is cooked, add the drained black beans and a dollop of the zingy spinach dressing and stir it all together – this is your green quinoa

8
