Tri-coloured quinoa salad with radishes, mint and harissa-lime dressing


  • 200 g tri-coloured quinoa
  • 1 aubergine
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 lime (washed)
  • 15 g of mint

  1. Prepare the quinoa according the packaging instructions and let it cool down.

  3. Grate the zest of the lime.  Pull the mint leaves from the stalks and finely chop.  Cut the radishes into quarters and finely chop the radish tops.
  4. Mix half the mint, the radish leaves and the lime zest with 1 tbsp of the mild harissa paste and 1 tbsp of olive oil and combine with the quinoa, season to taste.
  5. Crumble the feta cheese.
  6. Spoon the quinoa salad onto the plates, divide the aubergine and radishes over the plate.  Pour over the harissa-lime dressing and sprinkle the crumbled feta and the rest of the mint on top.
