A super quick and healthy lunch time recipe of quinoa, smoked salmon, boiled eggs and avocado topped with a creamy dijon mustard dressing

Serves: 2
  • Quinoa Bowl:
  • 100g (1/2 cup) quinoa
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g smoked salmon, chopped
  • ¼ cucumber, sliced
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • Dressing:
  • 3 tbsp creme fraiche
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard


  1. Add the quinoa to a pan of boiling water and cook for approximately 15 minutes (or according to the package instructions). At the same time place the eggs in another pan of boiling water and cook for 7 minutes. When the eggs are cooked allow them to sit for a couple of minutes in cold water, before peeling and chopping them.

  2. Drain the quinoa, split it between two bowls and add the eggs, smoked salmon, cucumber, tomatoes and avocado.

  3. Make the dressing by mixing the creme fraiche and dijon mustard together. You can add more or less mustard to taste. Drizzle over the top and serve.

 Although it looks and can be used like a grain, quinoa is actually a seed, making it completely gluten free. It’s an incredibly nutritious food with just one portain containing up to 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fibre, guaranteed to keep you nicely full until dinner.
