Friday Food-day: Warm Quinoa Salad with Grilled Vegetables

This meal is good if you're feeling lazy but think you should probably eat something that will do your insides good and not just the pizza inside the freezer.

If you would like to make this you will need: quinoa, red onion, orange pepper, courgette, asparagus, rocket, olive oil and a lemon.

1. Cook the quinoa according to the packs instructions, drain and set aside.

2. Chop the vegetables, toss in some olive oil, arrange in a baking tray and place under the grill. Shake the baking tray every so often so all sides get nicely grilled, then when they start to get sizzly and brown remove them.

3. Mix together the quinoa and the grilled vegetables, drizzle over some olive oil and as much lemon juice as you want, season with salt and pepper, mix in a handful of rocket and nom.

As you can see this is incredibly easy, if I'm feeling extra adventurous I'll grill some halloumi and whack that in as well but I already had cheese today so I decided against it. You could also replace the quinoa with cous cous, rice or pasta, and just use any vegetables that you have, as long as you drown it in lemon juice it will taste pretty good.
