Ingredients

  • Olive oil for frying
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 200-250g grated carrot (about 2 medium carrots)
  • 1 small broccoli (about 300g), broken into florets and whizzed in a food processor until fine
  • 300g cooked quinoa (about 150g uncooked)
  • 90-100g shelled, unroasted pistachios

For the dressing

  • 75ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • Grated zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 10g fresh chives, snipped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Method

  1. Heat a glug of oil in a medium pan over a gentle heat. Fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 4-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the carrots and cook for a few minutes.
  2. Add the broccoli to the pan and cook for 2 minutes more or until both the carrot and broccoli are tender, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Transfer to a serving dish.
  3. Whisk all the dressing ingredients with a pinch of salt in a small bowl, then pour over the warm vegetables and mix. Stir in the quinoa and nuts, season to taste, then serve.
