½ Knorr Veg Stock Cube
150ml Boiling Water (Approx)

2 tbsp Pomegranate seeds
1 tsp Pine Nuts
½ small red onion
Handful of Spinach
Small handful Fresh Parsley
Small handful Fresh Coriander
Small handful Fresh Mint
Lemon Juice – To Taste

Cook the Quinoa as per the packet instructions but to liven it up a bit, add the stock cube to the water before bringing to the boil.
Lightly toast the pine nuts in a pan for 2-5 minutes. Careful not to let them burn!
Roughly chop the Red Onion, Spinach, Parsley, Mint and Coriander.
Mix together all the above ingredients with the pomegranate seeds and season to taste.
Crumble over the Feta and then finish with a little drizzle of Lemon Juice.
