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.
