Quinoa and Pesto Salad

I made a really quick quinoa salad a while back combining leftover ingredients from the fridge. It worked really well and was a filling and tasty lunch.

Quinoa and Pesto Salad
(Serves 1)

60g quinoa
50g peas
1 small courgette, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1/2 ball mozzarella, chopped
handful sorrel leaves, sliced
1 tsp pesto

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions, add the peas for the last 3 mins, drain.

Meanwhile, put a little oil in a frying pan and fry the courgette until golden.

Combine the quinoa, peas, courgette, tomato, mozzarella and sorrel in a bowl. Add the pesto and mix until everything is coated in the pesto. Serve or pack into a lunchbox.
