This is a tasty minty main course that you will devour with joy! For those with an irritable bowel, it is better to use barley and quinoa in the place of cereals like rice and wheat.

Minty Quinoa is a tasty quinoa based main course, which is perked up with loads of yummy veggies and flavoured pleasantly with mint.

This recipe goes slow with the spices, using just bay leaves for aroma and pepper for a mild pungency. As the name suggests, this dish gets its flavour mainly from mint, so don’t compromise on that!
