I cooked up a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week, and when raiding the fridge one day (don’t pretend, we all do it) I spotted a tub of fruity couscous. Dried fruits and grains are one of my favourite combinations; there’s just something about a nutty base with chewy pops of sweetness! So, inspired from this I checked out the ingredients list and created a completely quick, delicious and gluten free version!
Serves 2 as a side
1/2 cup quinoa (if not already cooked, add to 1 cup boiling water on a medium heat with a squeeze of lemon for 15minutes)
2tbsp whole almonds
3 dried apricots, diced
1/4tsp dried parsley
1/4tsp lemon zest
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of turmeric
Simply prepare all your ingredients,season and mix together in a bowl!
