Here comes a great, filling salad recipe.


Cauliflower Quinoa Salad

Serves 4

1 cup red quinoa

half of a cauliflower

1 avocado

1 sweet bell pepper

8-10 cherry tomatos

1/2 cup dried tomato

a handful of pine nuts

50gr goat cheese

extra virgin olive oil

1 lime

2 tbsp hazelnut oil

salt, pepper, paprika

1. Start by preheat the oven to 200C. Chop the cauliflower into bite sized pieces, place them in a baking tray with a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika. Roast it for about 30 minutes.

2. While the cauliflower is baking cook the quinoa /1 part quinoa, 2 parts water/, and prepare the salad. Dice all the vegetables into small cubes, add them to the bowl along with the quinoa which has cooled for a few minutes.

3. Make a dressing by mixing together some hazelnut oil, a juice of a lime and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.

4. Add the roasted cauliflower to the salad, drizzle with the dressing, and sprinkle a bit of roasted pine nuts and goat cheese on the top. Enjoy!
