This salad may be light on the palette, but it is a serious energy booster. Packed full of protein from those wonderful little quinoa seeds, this is a salad that is sure to keep your hunger at bay.



1 handful of almonds, toasted
80g quinoa
5 radishes, halved
1/2 apple, thinly sliced
1/2 small fennel, thinly sliced
1 handful of chives, roughly chopped
1 handful of golden raisins
Sea salt and black pepper


Heat the oven to 180C. Place the almonds on a baking tray and cook for 5-7 minutes until lightly golden.

Meanwhile, place the quinoa in a pan with three times the amount of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 7-9 minutes until cooked. Transfer to a sieve, run under cold water to cool and drain well.

Transfer to a bowl, add the rest of the ingredients and mix.
