Method

Preparation

Cook the quinoa using the vegetable stock, and allow to cool. The quinoa should be moist but not running wet once cooked.

Quarter the olives.

Halve the tomatoes.

Skin the onion and slice thinly.

Cut the cheese into small pieces, or crumble.

Using a herb knife, cut the herbs into small pieces.

Assembly

Drain any surplus liquid from the quinoa.

Gently turn the quinoa, olives, tomatoes, herbs and cheese in a bowl to mix. Check the seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper as necessary.

Allow to cool in the refidgerator.

To serve

Serve with Lemon Sauce as a dressing on the side.

Variations

Omit the cheese for a vegan dish.

Any type of quinoa will do, but white quinoa cooks faster than red.

Substitute mature cheddar for feta if necessary.
