- 120g white quinoa
- 300ml water
- 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp lemon juice or cider vinegar
- Pinch caster sugar
- Freshly ground black pepper

- 40g sultanas or raisins
- 50g pomegranate seeds
- 2 tsp chia seeds or poppy seeds
- 80g feta cheese, crumbled

- Rinse the quinoa and put it into the Lékué Rice & Grain Cooker with the water. Put the lid in place. Microwave on HIGH for 6 minutes. Carefully remove from the microwave and stir in the stock powder. Microwave for 5 more minutes on HIGH, with the lid in place. Allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Tip: Check that the quinoa is cooked after 11 minutes, as all microwaves can vary a little. Add another 1-2 minutes if required.
