Meatless Monday-Lime and soy quinoa salad (lunch box friendly!)



After the feasting of thanksgiving and before the feasting of Christmas, I thought you might appreciate a super healthy 'Meatless Monday'.  This salad is packed with protein, 'good oils', vitamins and minerals.  Great warm,but the salad would also be good to take to work as a packed lunch.

Serves 4
200g quinoa
8 tbsp frozen sweetcorn kernals
8 tbsp frozen edamame (soya) beans
1 red pepper, chopped
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced
12 organic tomatino tomatoes
3 tbsp tamari
1 1/2 tbsp lime
pumpkin seeds
Place the quinoa, edamame beans and sweetcorn in a pan.  Cover with cold water and bring to the boil.  Reduce the heat and simmer until the water is absorbed. 
Mix the lime and soy and stir into the quinoa mixture.  
Add the peppers and tomatoes, divide between 4 bowls and arrange 1/2 sliced avocado around each bowl. Sprinkle a few pumpkin seeds over each salad.

Enjoy!
