Nutty Grain Salad with Coconut Yoghurt Dressing

This is a spectacular salad filled with such goodness. I admit it is a little more time-consuming to prepare than other salads, but the result is definitely worth it!

Ingredients

1 bunch coriander, chopped
½ bunch parsley, chopped
½ red onion, finely diced
1 cup Quinoa
½ cup Puy lentils
2 T pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
2 T slivered almonds
2 T pine nuts
2 T baby capers
½ cup currants
Juice of 1 lemon
3 T extra virgin olive
Sea salt to taste
1 pomegranate, deseeded, to serve

Dressing

1 cup thick coconut yoghurt
1 tsp cumin seeds, toasted and ground
1 T honey

Method

  1. Blanch quinoa and lentils separately in boiling water until both just cooked. Drain well and allow to cool.
  2. In the meantime, toast pumpkin seeds, almonds and pine nuts
  3. Mix the yoghurt, ground cumin and honey until combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, place the coriander, parsley, red onion, quinoa, lentils, toasted nuts, capers, currants, lemon juice and olive oil. Mix well and season to taste.
  5. Place into serving dish and top with cumin yoghurt and pomegranate seeds.

Quinoa is one of the most protein-rich foods we can eat and it contains almost twice as much fibre as most other grains.

When we mix this with the lentils, nuts and coconut yoghurt, there is an incredible mix of deliciousness and nutritiousness!!!!  Tweet: When you have an early meeting or you just can’t face eating before you rush out the door, then a smoothie is the perfect morning companion.  Click to tweet

Enjoy 🙂
