Cooking Stages

    • Boil a kettle. Rinse the quinoa and place in a pan of 300ml boiling water for 15 mins until cooked.

    • Meanwhile finely slice the red onion and red pepper. Peel and de-stone the avocado and slice thinly. Finely chop the jalapenos and the coriander leaves.

    • Heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a medium-sized pan. Drain the kidney beans and add to the pan with half of the smoked paprika and the jalapenos and cook for 5 mins. Remove from the pan, set aside and cover.

    • In the same pan, heat 1/2 tbsp oil and fry the onion for 3 mins, then add the red pepper and fry for 5 mins. Stir through the remaining smoked paprika.

    • Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix the creamed coconut with 30ml boiling water to form a sauce. Add a squeeze of lime juice and a pinch of sea salt.

    • When the quinoa has finished cooking, drain and mix with the kidney beans and half of the coriander. Season with sea salt and black pepper.

    • To serve: spoon the quinoa and beans into a bowl, top with the red pepper and onion, then layer over the sliced avocado. Drizzle over the coconut lime sauce and scatter over the remaining coriander leaves.
