We visited friends on the weekend and I was inspired by a recipe my friend Stephen created. It was a tasty salad with pumpkin, coriander, spring onions and quinoa. Quinoa is a delicious grain with a high protein content. I had been to the local organic stall in Kings Cross, Sydney and had a few of the ingredients at hand. I tend never to follow recipes so I used what I had replacing the pumpkin with sweet potato and added pomegranate seeds, their jewel like quality shimmered on the surface of the salad. There were lilies on the table and their strong evocative scent filled the room. I could not resist photographing nature and nosh. A crisp green salad was a great accompaniment, fresh organic lettuce, steamed organic asparagus and crushed walnuts. What else do you need!
