  1. Hi, a few questions – thanks for this recipe, it looks really interesting, but I’m unsure what to do with the lentils and quinoa after step 5 – is the rice basket removed from the bowl before adding the kale and do the lentils and quinoa then go back into the bowl in step 7… and is the ‘juice’ the lemon juice (and zest)??

    • Hi Kate, thank you for getting in touch. So after step 5, I removed the simmering basket, added the kale to the main bowl and then added the basket again. Though I am sure you could just keep it all aside. Add the lemon juice at step 7, and then lime juice at step 8. Enjoy! It’s lovely x

  2. Thank you for your quick response, I’m looking forward to trying this recipe!

    • I’ve just made it again for lunch (see Instagram post), you’re in for a treat. It’s so delicious. Enjoy x

  3. MMM this looks so tasty, thanks for sharing. I needed new recipes for quinoa so I’m definitely going to try this. Pinned it as well for future reference!!!
