Method for the best superfood salad recipe

Quinoa

  • Place quinoa in saucepan adding in the stock and the dash of olive oil. Roughly mix together with a fork and bring to the boil before turning down to simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  • If the quinoa has not expanded and appears to still be hard, add some more water and leave to simmer some more. We recommend using a fork to ‘fluff’ up your quinoa to get the desired texture.
  • Top tip: Rinse the dry quinoa in a sieve before cooking, this will encourage the quinoa to expand and soak up the stock.

 

Dressing for superfood salad recipe

  • To make the dressing first you’ll need to turn the orange juice into a glace, you can do this by adding the orange juice to a saucepan and gently boiling on a medium to high heat until a syrup like texture has formed.
  • Once cool you will then need to whisk the orange glace, vinegar and honey together and begin to slowly add olive oil and seasoning.

Wikipedia is a bit dismissive of superfoods!

Superfood is a marketing term for food assumed to confer health benefits resulting from an exceptional nutrient density. The term is not commonly used by experts, dietitians and nutrition scientists, many of whom dispute that particular foods have the health benefits claimed by their advocates. Wikipedia

I however really think it is crucial to look after a our bodies and give these superfoods a whirl
