Are you thinking this spring will get you into shape for summer? Are you planning on eating lighter than you have throughout winter? I know I am. This is a delicious, yet filling recipe that goes very well with anything barbequed and of course flat bread and some sort of aioli. So get organised kids and join me on the quest for less this summer. (Less thigh meat...less rump meat...you catch my drift!) Good luck.

Place quinoa into simmering basket and insert into Thermomix bowl. Fill Thermomix bowl to 1L mark with water. Steam 18 min/100°C/speed 3. Remove basket from bowl and drain, and cool.
Fluff the quinoa with a fork. Set aside.
Prepare the remaining ingredients and toss together in a large bowl.
Add quinoa and combine.
With absolutely anything that needs a bright punchy flavour of freshness to bring it all together. Particularly good with roasted or grilled lamb.
Handfuls of fresh mint leaves added to this is also fantastic.
