Prawn and quinoa salad

Updated: Jun 18

This salad is one of my go-to quick and healthy meals. I prepare a large portion of quinoa weekly and leave it in the fridge ready to be grabbed and turned into a delicious salad!

Firstly, a great tip when cooking quinoa, Soak it overnight!! Pour your quinoa in a bowl and add enough water to just cover it, Place in the fridge and leave overnight. This makes cooking it much quicker!

Quinoa is a great source of protein and has a lovely nutty flavor. I find it makes a great post-workout salad.

For this salad I used:

Spinach and watercress for the salad base

50g cooked quinoa

Half a medium avocado

2 mini courgettes

a handful of edamame beans

Half a small orange

A handful of pomegranate seeds

Cooked Prawns

And lastly a sprinkle of hemp hearts

This salad is an all-round balanced meal. It provides the three macronutrients; carbs, protein, and fat as well as micronutrients from the fruits and veg! I love this meal because not only does it taste amazing it's so quick and easy to prepare!
