I had 15 mins to whip up a yummo lunch today and as I have a pretty busy week wanted something that would last a few days.
This was not only perfect but really does have all of my favourite things.
¾ cup quinoa
1 chicken breast
1 red capsicum cut into small bite sized pieces
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed well)
½ red onion, chopped
I fresh corn cut from the cob (or frozen kernels)
Half bunch of coriander – finely chopped
2 teaspoons honey or maple
Some of the cooked garlic and ginger from the pan.
¼ avocado chopped fresh into cubes
small piece of feta
Cook ¾ cup quinoa through absorption method. Allow to cool.
Chop garlic and grate ginger throw in a pan with a touch of olive oil.
Gently simmer then pop a chicken breast straight in to cook through.
While that is cooking away chop and chuck all the ingredients in a bowl.
Shake lime juice and honey in a jar until mixed through.
When chicken is cooked, slice into bite sized pieces.
Mix through salad, with dressing.
Sprinkle with fetta and avocado.
Note: you could add the fetta and avocado into the bowl. I jut prefer it fresh on the day I have had dodgy avocado in the past and its an experience I am not keen to repeat. Fresh is best.
Sweet potato would be a good addition as well for a longer sustaining meal.
Keep in an airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy.
