Mixed Quinoa, Serrano Ham and Mozzarella Courgetti

Here’s a perfect healthy snack or light lunch that’s packed with the goodness of grains and full of flavour.

It’s a super versatile dish so if you don’t have all the ingredients to hand, just mix and match. No carrots? Use more courgettes. Used up all your chickpeas? Try frozen green peas instead.

For an extra colourful twist, try and track down both yellow and green courgettes or scour the local market or grocer for some purple carrots; experiment, have fun and send us your snaps so we can take a look at your creations!
