Green Quinoa with Mango and Avocado

Summer is starting, so along with that, the salad craving is starting!! This salad is amazing - exactly what I wanted it to be. Do NOT skip the mango!

Serves 4-6
1 cup Quinoa
100g baby spinach
1 bunch coriandesr
1 bunch mint
3 shallots
2 limes, juiced
2 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp Celtic salt
1 mango diced into SMALL 1cm cubes
1 avocado diced into SMALL 1cm cubes
400g tofu, chopped into 1-2 cm cubes
1 tsp sweet or smoked paprika powder
1 Tbs tamari
olive oil
  • Place the quinoa and 1and 3/4 cup of hot water into a saucepan. Bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer and keep covered. Should be cooked within 12-15mins when all the water is absorbed. :Let the quinoa cool down before proceeding to the next step.
  • In a food processor place the spinach, mint, coriander and shallots. Pulse/process until all chopped up.
  • Combine the quinoa, green mixture, lime juice, olive oil and salt. Mix well with your hands. Spread out on a nice platter.
  • Gently mix through the mango and avocado with the quinoa.
  • Pour a little olive oil into a non-stick frypan, Add the tofu, tamari and sweet paprika. Let it fry until golden brown. Place the tofu on top of the salad and admire a beautiful and tasty salad!
