Steps


1Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) Fan. Rinse quinoa really well under running water.
2Add rinsed quinoa, salt and spices to a medium-size cooking pot (20 cm ~ 8 inch, preferably cast iron).
3Add water. Bring to a boil, stir then reduce heat to low (induction #2). Simmer quinoa, covered, for 15 minutes or until soft and cooked through. Turn off the heat and let quinoa sit in a covered pot for another 5 minutes.
4In the meantime, arrange frozen broccoli (take it directly from the freezer) on top of a baking tray lined with baking paper.
5Roast in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes.
6Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
7While the broccoli is roasting, make the dressing. Add milk, almond butter, vinegar, onion powder and salt to a jar or a cup.
8Whisk together until smooth using a mini whisk or an electric mini milk frother. Set aside.
9Add cooked quinoa to plates.
10Top with roasted broccoli.
