Chef’s tip: sprinkle the bowl with a tablespoon of crumbled feta or ricotta to serve, and team with some warmed gluten free flatbread. This salad keeps well in the fridge for a day as a lunchbox option if you want to prepare the night before or prepare it in batches.


200g cooked quinoa 

50g courgette, thinly sliced 

50g red pepper, thinly sliced 

60g aubergine, thinly sliced 

3-5 pitted black olives, roughly chopped 

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil  

Juice and finely grated zest of ¼ of a large lemon 

2-3 springs parsley, leaves picked and roughly chopped 

1/4 bunch chives, finely chopped 

Salt and pepper to taste 


  1. Heat the grill to high 
  2. Toss the vegetables with 1 tbsp olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  3. Grill vegetables for 3-4 minutes on each side until tender, then serve stirred through the quinoa with the lemon juice, parsley, chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.
