Chefs tips
  • Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a wholegrain nutritionally, but it is actually a seed. It's naturally gluten-free and rich in protein. Use it in place of rice or couscous to make pilafs and salads.
  • You could add all sorts of vegetables such as peppers, mushrooms, peas or sweetcorn.
