Instructions

  1. Place quinoa in a large saucepan and cover with 2 cups (500ml) cold water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until all the water has evaporated (this should take about 12–15 minutes). Transfer to a large bowl. Add paprika and half the juice and stir to combine. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool.

Notes

Quinoa (say “keen-wah”) is a tiny white seed and is a good substitute for rice. It is available in the health food aisle of most supermarkets.
