Cooks Tips: 

This recipe is ideal for packed lunches – simply pack into separate lunch boxes and keep refrigerated for up to 4 days.

For a change, use microwaveable brown rice instead of quinoa.

This recipe uses a pack of pre-cooked quinoa to make things simple and cut down on cooking time – though you could cook it from scratch.

Method

  1. Drain the can of mango and chop the slices into chunks. Set aside.
  2. Tip the chickpeas into a large frying pan and dry-fry for 2 minutes. Add the cumin seeds, turmeric and almonds and continue to dry-fry for another 2-3 minutes to toast the chickpeas and almonds slightly. Remove from the heat.
  3. Prepare the quinoa according to pack instructions. (This is best if heated in a saucepan with a little water for 1-2 minutes). Drain and combine with the chickpea mixture. Cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile, put the onion into a bowl with the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Arrange handfuls of spinach onto 4 serving plates. Stir the mango pieces and onion mixture through the chickpeas and quinoa, then share between the plates. Serve at once.
