Quinoa is a healthy grain that’s consumed in seed form. It’s rich in protein and is a boon for people going for a wheat-free diet. Combine quinoa with some the tangy flavour of mango and pungent flavour of curry for a delicious, light and healthy salad you’ll want to have over and over again.


  • Quinoa                                                   3/4 cup
  • Mango, peeled, seeded and diced             1
  • Green onions, chopped                            3
  • Vegetable or chicken stock                      1-1/2 cups

  • Garlic powder                                         1/4 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper                                       To per taste


  1. Place a deep saucepan over high heat and pour the vegetable / chicken stock in it.
  2. Add quinoa, garlic powder, curry powder, salt and pepper and bring the stock to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the saucepan and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes until the quinoa becomes soft and cooked through.
