Total Time
30 Minutes
200g of quinoa
150g of broad beans
150g of garden peas
A good handful of sugar snaps, thinly sliced
4 radishes cut into chunks
A bunch dill, chopped
A few sprigs of mint, leaves removed
4 spring onions, chopped
50g of toasted sunflower seeds
2 avocados, peeled and chopped into chunks
For the dressing
100ml of olive oil
Juice of 2 limes
A squeeze honey
1 tsp of ground cumin
Salt and pepper
Step 1

In a pan, boil some water and cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions with salt and pepper. Drain and place in a bowl.

Step 2

Whisk all the dressing ingredients together and pour over the quinoa and combine.

Step 3

Boil some water in a little pan and add the peas, simmer for 30 seconds then remove (keeping the water boiling) and refresh in cold water. Add to the quinoa bowl.

Step 4

Add the broad beans to the boiling water, cook for 3 minutes, remove from the pan and refresh in cold water. Nip the end of each broad bean and squeeze it out of its jacket, add to the quinoa bowl.

Step 5

Add the sugar snaps, radishes, dill, mint, spring onions, and sunflower seeds, and gently mix everything together.

Step 6

At this stage, either dish up in a pretty bowl and scatter the avocado over if serving as a side salad. Or separate into breakfast bowls and divide the avocado between them, carefully mix.
