  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 0.25 inch Fresh Ginger
  • 0.5 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 0.5 cup Quinoa (dry)
  • Juice of half a Lime
  • 2 tbsp. Soy Sauce (gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp. Peanut Butter (crunchy)
  • Sriracha to taste
  • 1 head Broccoli
  • 2 400g tin Chickpeas


  • Finely chop the garlic and ginger together - there should be approximately equal amounts of each
  • Heat a large, light saucepan and add the coconut oil. Allow it to melt, then add the garlic and ginger and quickly fry over a high heat for a couple of minutes
  • Throw in the dry quinoa and continue to cook for a further minute or two, before adding the lime juice, soy sauce, peanut butter, and a little sriracha or hot sauce, if that's your thang. Add 2 cups of hot water, turn down the heat and simmer for around ten minutes
  • Meanwhile, prepare the broccoli by chopping it into bite-sized florets, and drain and rinse the chickpeas
  • After the quinoa has been cooking for around 10 minutes, add the chickpeas, and suspend the broccoli over the pan in a covered sieve or colander, to steam
  • Steam the broccoli for 5 minutes, then add it to the pan with the rest of the dish, and stir
  • Divide into two bowls and enjoy your quick and healthy, one-pan dinner with a nice cold glass of wine
