- 1 pomegranate
- 110g spring onion
- 75g pine nuts, toasted

- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp all spice
For the dressing:
- 50ml olive oil
- 1 lemon, juice
- 1 tsp honey

Rinse the quinoa for 2-3 minutes to remove the natural coating they have.

Bring to the boil then simmer for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow to steam for a further 10 minutes.
Prepare the other ingredients while the quinoa is cooking.
Make the dressing by mixing all the ingredients in a bowl or jar and seasoning to taste.
Transfer the quinoa to a large bowl, add the other ingredients and the dressing and mix well.
