Healthy alternative to coleslaw – quinoa, carrot and hazelnut coleslaw

IMG_0273.jpgMakes 5 generous portions

80g Quinoa (Dry Weight)

150g Carrot (coarsely grated)

Lemon Juice, ½ Juiced Lemon

30g Hazelnuts, Blanched and roughly chopped

Black Pepper Freshly Ground (few grinds)

50g Mascarpone Cheese

80g Soured Cream

Cook the quinoa and drain – leave to cool (I cook mine in a rice steamer in the microwave for 5 + 5 minutes, full power 600)

When cool, mix with the remaining ingredients – mixing the mascarpone and soured cream first.

A yummy crunchy and healthy alternative to regular coleslaw and much more filling. You can make up a batch and it stores well in the fridge (but I leave the mascarpone and soured cream out, adding just before I serve it)
