Sometimes the best recipes are the ones that are not planned, but made out of convenience and lack of ingredients. I made this “quinotto” on a day that I was really craving something healthy but cooked, and I had nothing left in my cupboard apart from cherry tomatoes and spinach.
This recipe is gluten-free, great for a light home lunch, lunchbox or as an accompaniment to some fish.”An easy and gluten-free alternative to quinoa salad great for the winter months, ready in 10 min ”
