Quinoa, mint and pomegranate salad

For this salad, I used about 250g quinoa (cooked – a mix of black and white), arils from 1 pomegranate, chopped coriander, parsley and mint.

It goes really well with lamb, fish or chicken. For example, with this slow-cooked lamb, apricot and chickpea stew:

  1. Wow! Your photos are lovely. I would love a scoop of this with a freshly grilled piece of salmon on top! BTW, I just discovered your blog and absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing such awesome recipes – I can’t wait to try them out!


    1. Hi! Thanks for your lovely comment. This would indeed go really well with grilled salmon!

      I’m glad you like the blog – do let me know if there’s anything else in particular you’d like me to post about 🙂

      Let me know how your version turns out!

      1. Sure! I’d love to see some healthy baked goods and easy dinner main dishes – I’m a university student and have limited time, budget, and… I’m not a fan of washing too many dishes 😛


      2. Well, this certainly sounds like the blog for you! All of my baked goods are gluten and dairy free, without added sugar (and I don’t sub loads of honey/dried fruit for the sugar either, like most baking recipes do!). I’m DEFINITELY not a fan of complicated recipes that require you to use every dish and utensil in the house! I love one-pot dinners, especially in the winter – I tend to make them in my slow cooker (a great investment, if you don’t already have one, and not that expensive), but most could also be made in a pot on the hob, or in the oven.

      3. Oh, excellent. I don’t like baking with too much sugar either and always sub spelt flour for AP flour 🙂 So glad I found your blog – it’s going to be my new go-to for easy, healthy recipes.
        Unfortunately I’m living in an university apartment and have minimal appliances, but I can always scale the servings down and make it in a pot 🙂
