This incredibly healthy dish is a must try for savoury palates. The spicy smoky undertone coming through from the Cajun seasoning pairs especially well with the fruity and nutty tasting quinoa mixture. We love it as is at HQ but feel free to add some yoghurt if a creamier texture is your thing!

Lovely dish. I’ve never tried Quinoa before so it was a nice introduction to it. The dish was slightly dry so had a dollop of creme fraiche from a previous recipe. Won’t be rushing to order again as husband wasn’t fussed. I enjoyed it though.
