Ingredients

  • 50g red and white quinoa
  • ¼ cucumber, very finely chopped
  • ½ small bunch fresh mint, leaves coarsely chopped
  • 75g natural yogurt
  • 1 bunch fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped

Method

  1. Put the quinoa in a saucepan and cover with freshly boiled water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain well.
  2. Mix together the chopped cucumber, mint and yogurt to make a creamy tzatziki. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir the parsley into the cooked quinoa. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a lunch box. Put the salmon fillet on top and add a generous dollop of tzatziki. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
