|FOOD|broad bean, lentil and quinoa salad

Another super quick lunch recipe for you!  Remember the lentil and quinoa Greek salad I posted last week?  Well this is what you could do with the remaining lentils and feta and only cook up the quinoa once, similar ingredients but 2 completely different tasting salads.

Serves 1
1/2 can green lentils
2 tbsp cooked quinoa
1/4 cup frozen broad beans
1/4 cup frozen peas
50g feta cubes
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp dressing*

1. Put it all in a container and mix, if eating immediately you will need to blanch the broad beans and peas in boiling water for 3 minutes before serving (either hot or cold)

I like to make this the night before I'm having it for lunch, that way, everything is suitably defrosted.

* I use this dressing from sainsbury's although it is quite high in fat and 87 calls per tbsp I think I'm getting enough veg, calcium and protein in this meal to be worth having this too.
