Today (8th January), Michele Borboa posted a fab. vegan recipe on her Vegan she knows web-site titled ‘Rocket apple quinoa salad’.

‘… Tender sauteed apples, spicy arugula and protein-rich quinoa tossed with a sweet chili dressing is a yummy meal all by itself.

Serves 4

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 4 small apples, cored, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons apple or orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh chives or green onion (green part)
  • 4 cups arugula


  1. Bring quinoa and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover pan, and simmer for 12 minutes or until water is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When butter is melted, add apples, sugar, and salt. Cook, stirring often, until apples become fork tender. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together chili sauce, juice, olive oil, and chives or green onion. Season with a pinch of salt.
  4. Add quinoa, arugula, and apples to bowl and toss well to combine.
