Cranberry & Hazlenut Quinoa Salad. Baby spinach, cold quinoa, fresh dill, dried cranberries (sweetened with apple juice not sugar) chopped hazelnuts with a dressing of orange juice and coconut aminos. 


Baby spinach
Cooked cold quinoa
Fresh dill, chopped
Dried cranberries (sweetened with apple juice not sugar)
Chopped hazelnuts


Juice of 1 orange
1-2 Tbsp Coconut Aminos


To get nice fluffy quinoa, rinse and boil in water for 5-10 minutes. Transfer to a sieve and sit over a pot of water (with the lid on) to steam for a further 5-10 minutes as the water boils. The water should be low enough so the sieve doesn’t touch the water. Cool completely before adding to the salad.

Coconut Aminos is a soy sauce alternative. It’s much sweeter and has a distinctive flavour as it’s made from coconut sap. Although it is a bit of different flavour you can replace with a smaller amount of tamari if you can’t get it or just exclude it altogether.
