Quick, easy, and healthy recipes make up my kitchen arsenal – with two toddlers it’s almost impossible to attempt anything else. My children adore this quinoa salad, and if you’re pressed for time you can also prepare it ahead and serve it cold.

You need:
½ block of haloumi
handful of chopped mint
handful of frozen peas
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 cups of quinoa

Boil the quinoa and let cool.
While the quinoa is hanging out, grill your haloumi until brown on both sides. Slice the grilled haloumi into small pieces.
Add the olive oil to a pan.
Over low heat, combine the grilled haloumi, frozen peas, chopped mint, lemon juice, and quinoa.

Et voila – now sit back and be prepared to serve seconds.
