SW recipe: chickpea, orange and quinoa salad


  • 250g dried quinoa
  • 400ml boiling vegetable stock
  • 2 tsp mild curry powder
  • 4 small oranges
  • 400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium red onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp aged balsamic vinegar
  • A small pack fresh mint, finely shredded
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 40g watercress sprigs


    • Put the quinoa into a sieve and rinse under cold running water. Shake away the excess water, tip into a large non-stick saucepan and place over a medium-high heat. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes until it is dry and starting to smell slightly nutty.
    • Add the stock and curry powder and increase the heat to high. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer rapidly for 15-20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Tip the quinoa into a mixing bowl and leave to cool slightly.
    • Meanwhile, take a thin slice off the top and bottom of each orange, stand them up straight on a board and carefully slice away all the skin and pith. Slice along either side of each segment and down into the centre of the orange, dropping the segments into a bowl. Stir the chickpeas, red onion, vinegar, mint, lemon juice, watercress and orange segments into the quinoa and season to serve.
