So, we decided our past posts were starting to look a little cake-heavy… So here is a lovely healthy recipe for you to feast your eyes on! It’s super simple, and super healthy, quinoa is very high in protein and full of great nutrients (and a great replacement for rice or cous cous)

Chop up the chilli and parsley and zest half a lemon. Follow packet instructions to cook quinoa, meanwhile roast the vegetables in the oven until just cooked. When everything is cooked, pile the quinoa and vegetables into a big bowl and mix together with the parsley, lemon zest, chilli (if using), lemon juice and olive oil. Finish with the feta crumbled on top.
