Either for lunch or dinner, try this perfect spring recipe! With its quinoa salad, pine nuts, and feta cheese, it’s absolutely delicious. You can also use vegetable broth if you want to make a vegetarian recipe.

2 servings


250 ml (1 cup) low sodium chicken broth
125 ml (1/2 cup) dry quinoa
400 g (4 large) portobello mushrooms
5 ml (1 teaspoon) olive oil
30 ml (2 tablespoons) pine nuts
175 g (1 large) red bell pepper, cut into small dices
80 ml (1/3 cup) light feta cheese, crumbled
500 ml (2 cups) mesclun lettuce
Salt and pepper, to taste

Fat-free orange-flavoured balsamic vinegar dressing

30 ml (2 tablespoons) orange juice

  1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Cook the quinoa according to indications. Cool down, and set aside.
  2. In a pan, cook the mushrooms in olive oil over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side. Add salt and pepper. Let cool down, and set aside. Add the pine nuts into the pan and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes while stirring regularly to sear the nuts. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing. Set aside.
