Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa,

  • 1 can corn drained,

  • 1 cup lettuce or any other salad greens (baby spinach, arugula, spring mix etc),

  • 1 teaspoon mixed seeds (I always have a jar with mixed seeds like: pumpkin seeds sunflower seeds and psyllium seeds),

  • 1 cup bell peppers,

  • 1 cup carrots,

  • 1 cup leek

  • 1/2 avocado,

  • 4 tablespoons sesame oil,

  • salt and pepper.

For the chicken:

  • 180g "chicken" pieces Vemondo (Vivera, Quorn,Vemondo),

  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder,

  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil,

  • 1 clove garlic minced,

  • salt, pepper (optional).

Instructions:

  1. Cook quinoa according to package instructions, or you can use my instruction on "How to cook quinoa". Fluff the quinoa with a fork and cover to keep warm. Cut the peppers, carrots, leek and slice the avocado.

  2. Add quinoa to a bowl, top with "chicken", corn, leek, peppers, carrots, avocado, lettuce and seeds (as below). Drizzle 2 teaspoons sesame oil and some fresh lime over everything, optional.

For the chicken:
