This salad is super easy, tasty and nutritious. Perfect to pack for lunch, high in protein and packed full of ingredients that will sustain your energy all day!


2 cups brown rice
1 cup red quinoa
2 cans chickpeas
2 cans red kidney beans
1 punnet Roma cherry tomatoes diced
1 bunch broccolini roughly chopped
1/2 bunch parsley finely chopped
1/4 Lebanese cucumber diced
1 Handful of broken walnuts
1/2 cup Raisins
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of half a lemon


Rinse the rice and quinoa then place in a pot of water. Bring to the boil and cook for 25 mins stirring occasionally. While the rice/quinoa cooks, wash and drain the beans and chop up all remaining ingredients. Drain the rice/quinoa and allow to cool. Toss all ingredients together and top with the lemon juice and some extra salt and pepper. Enjoy!
