Recipe Ingredients for Salad for Your Brain

200 g broccoli, cut into bite-size florets
120 g peas, fresh or frozen
100 g cucumber, cut into small, slim batons
100 g feta cheese, crumbled
20 g sesame seeds (sunflower, flax, pumpkin), toasted
50 g avocado, cut into pieces
30 g quinoa or cous cous
1/4 cup mint, roughly chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
4 tsp olive oil, extra virgin

Recipe Directions for Salad for Your Brain

  1. Prepare quinoa or cous cous as directed. Spread it on a tray to cool.

  2. Put an inch of hot water into a saucepan with a pinch of salt and cover. Once boiling, drop in broccoli and peas and put the lid back on. Drain after three minutes. Run the veg under cold water to take the heat out. This keeps them green.
