Quinoa is one of the latest healthy seeds which can be cooked or sprouted, if you want a totally raw food.

Quinoa is a great source of protein and includes nine amino acids and is low in fat and carbohydrates.

Chia seeds and almonds also have wonderful health properties, and this recipe tastes excellent, as well as being easy to make and healthy.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 3-4 servings

Ingredients
2/3 cup quinoa (any colour)
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
2 -3 tbsp Chia seeds
1/3 cup almonds, roughly chopped

DRESSING
3 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp honey
tsp cumin
tsp salt (optional)

Method
First rinse the quinoa thoroughly, this is important, even if the packet says it is rinsed.

Put water over the quinoa and bring to the boil over high heat. Once it has boiled, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Quinoa will get little white "tails" as it cooks.

While this is cooking, soak the apricots in warm water for about 15 minutes and then drain.

Meanwhile cut the almonds up into small pieces.
