Make It Like So
  1. Instructions
  2. Rinse quinoa thoroughly in a seive, rubbing the grains slightly to rinse away bitter coating.
  3. Place quinoa, honey and water into a pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for about 15-minutes or until all water is absorbed. Once cooked, allow to sit covered for ten minutes and then fluff it up with a spoon.
  4. While quinoa is cooking, lightly toast slivered almonds in a frying pan or in the oven on low heat. Toast just until lightly browned, set aside and allow to cool.
  5. Steam green beans lightly, just until they turn bright green colour. You want them to still have a crunch.
  6. Once quinoa is cooked, beans are steamed, pomegranate is seeded, and almonds are toasted, toss together in a large mixing bowl, adding in lemon juice and salt.
