Ingredients:

  • 300g of Quinoa - £2.35

  • 165g of Raw King Prawns - £3.00

  • 50ml of Aspall Organic Cyder Vinegar - £1.70

  • 2 Avocados - £1.70

  • 1 Cucumber - £0.45

  • 1 Bunch of Basil - £0.70

  • Total Cost - £9.90 - This covers absolutely everything. All we assume you have in your kitchen beforehand is SALT, PEPPER AND OLIVE OIL.

Method:

  1. Get your quinoa on. It should take 15 minutes in boiling water but check the packet for cooking directions.

  2. Place the prawns in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix together. Throw the prawns onto a hot griddle pan. They should take 1 ½ to 2 minutes on each side.

  3. In the meantime, cut 2 avocados into small cubes and add to a salad bowl. Peel and de-seed 1 cucumber, chop into small chunks and add that too.

  4. Once the prawns are pink and cooked through, remove them from the heat and add to a bowl, along with the cooked quinoa. Add a handful of chopped basil.

  5. Dressing time. Add 50ml of Aspall Organic Cyder Vinegar to a jar with 150ml of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Mix it all together.

  6. Pour the dressing over the salad, toss it together and serve! Enjoy!
