Ingredients

Quinoa

  • 200g/1 cup quinoa
  • 375ml/1½ cup water

Other ingredients

  • ½ red onion, finely diced
  • 2 large tomatoes, de-seeded and diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 30g/1 cup fresh parsley, stalks removed and finely chopped
  • 30g/1 cup fresh mint, stalks removed and finely chopped
  • 80g-100g vegan feta (our absolute favourites are Violife Greek White Block or Green Vie Greek Style), cut into small bite-sized cubes
  • 100g/½ cup (approx.) pomegranate seeds
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp pomegranate molasses or syrup (eg agave or maple) or sugar – optional
  • ½ tsp – 1 tsp salt (depending on your personal preference)
  • Light sprinkling black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place the quinoa in a sieve then rinse it really well.
  2. Add the quinoa to a medium-sized saucepan with the water. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer on a very low heat until all the water is absorbed (approx. 15-20 minutes but do keep checking). Set aside, with the lid off, to cool.
  3. Whilst the quinoa is cooking and cooling, chop all the veg and place them in a large salad bowl.
  4. Combine all of the ingredients together and set aside a little bit of feta, pomegranate seeds and a sprig of mint for decoration.

Did you know that Vegan Recipe Club is run by a charity?

We create vital resources to help educate everyone – vegan veterans, novices and the v-curious alike – about vegan food, health and nutrition; as well as the plight of farmed animals and the devastating environmental impact of farming.

Through this work we have helped thousands of people discover veganism; but we want to reach millions more! We rely entirely on donations as we don’t get any government funding. If you already support us, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you are really making a difference! Please share our details with your friends and loved ones too, as every donation enables us to keep fighting for change.
