Instructions

  1. Place the quinoa in a pan with 180ml water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer 12 minutes or until water is absorbed. Transfer to a bowl to cool, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add chickpeas and mint to the quinoa. Drizzle with the oil and lemon juice then season with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Stir through the griddled vegetables and gently mix through. Divide among serving plates and sprinkle with the feta and almonds to serve.
  4. Transfer to a serving plate, scatter over the feta and almonds, then serve with lemon wedges.
