South African Energy Bowl

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: 2


  • 100 g red and white quinoa (or just use white)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 South African Pink Lady apple (cored and sliced)
  • 1 South African Packham or William pear (cored and sliced)
  • 1 ripe avocado (peeled, pitted and sliced)
  • 100 g Red Leicester cheese (cut into chunks)
  • 60 g whole almonds
  • A few pomegranate seeds


  • Rinse the quinoa, put it into a saucepan and cover with double the volume of cold water. Add a pinch of salt and cook gently for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain in a sieve or colander and rinse with cold water to cool quickly.
  • Share the quinoa between 2 serving bowls and arrange the apple, pear and avocado slices on top with the cheese and almonds.
  • Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, then serve.


Cook’s tip: Try Cheddar or Double Gloucester cheese instead of Red Leicester, and add a few seedless grapes if you like.
