Salad ingredients:
1 cup of quinoa
half a butternut pumpkin
70g feta cheese
100g semi dried tomato

Juice 1 orange
4og balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp ground cumin
80g Grapeseed oil

Soak quinoa in water for about an hour.

Fill bowl with a litre of water. Put quinoa in simmering basket and butternut in Verona.
Cook for 15 min on Verona speed 3.

If you like the butternut roasted, roast for another 5 - 10 minutes in a pan with a little grapeseed oil.

Mix the butternut, feta and sundried tamato with the quinoa.

Dressing:

Put all ingredients in the bowl, blend for 10 sec/speed 10

Mix dressing into salad and enjoy!

made this today. added some capsicums and green beans, lovely with the dressing on. I quite like the taste of the red quinoa it's kinda nutty.

I love quinoa too, but have never tried the red one. I'll do so in this salad.
