Cooking Instructions

1. As always, wash the quinoa with water by hand a few times, making sure to change the water, until there's no more residue left. When the quinoa is prepared, put it into boiling water with a little bit of salt and pepper, and after five minutes of boiling, add in the green beans. Leave it to cook for ten more minutes.

2. Once the quinoa and the green beans are cooked, leave them to cool and mix it with the rocket and the mango.

3. Continue to mix by adding the lemon juice and a little salt with three tablespoons of oil, and add the chia seeds. Mix everything together to integrate the different flavours and... it's ready to eat!
