Alver Golden Chlorella Vegan TexMex: Cooking instructions

Rinse the quinoa then place in a pan. Pour over the vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pan with a lid and simmer on a low heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the quinoa to stand for a further 5 minutes. Set aside.

Preheat the grill to high. To make the salsa: Place all the ingredients in a roasting tray. Drizzle with the olive oil and season. Grill for 10-15 minutes until golden. Place in a food processor and pulse to create a chunky salsa. Stir in the limejuice and season.

In a food processor, pulse all the ingredients for the taco meat until combined and the walnuts are finely chopped. Leave the walnuts slightly chunky for the texture.

Make up the dressing by simply placing all the ingredients in a blender and processing until smooth. Season to taste.

To assemble, divide the vegetables between four bowls. Spoon in some cooked quinoa and the taco meat. Spoon a little salsa on top and drizzle over the dressing to serve.
