Grilled Corn and Quinoa Salad with Orange and Chilli Dressing

Try this brilliantly colourful salad of grilled corn, quinoa, red pepper and coriander with a vibrant orange and green chilli dressing. Packing some big carnival flavours and textures, we designed this dish as a perfect accompaniment to our new Brazilian Black Bean Stew For Two - lifting and enhancing the deep and rich smokey bean stew. 

2 small cobs of corn

 

100g red quinoa

 

1 red pepper, deseeded and diced

 

1 bunch coriander

Heat grill to highest setting. Lightly oil the corn and place under grill in a roasting tray. Grill for 20 minutes, turning occasionally until the kernels are tender and the corn is beginning to char and turn golden.

 

For perfect fluffy quinoa: cover the quinoa with 200ml lightly salted water. Cook uncovered until the quinoa has absorbed all of the water (around 12 - 15 minutes), then remove from the heat, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.

 

When the corn is cool enough to handle, shave the kernels off with a sharp knife. Add into a mixing bowl, along with the cooked quinoa, red pepper and roughly chopped coriander leaves (keep the stalks for the dressing).

 

For the dressing, finely slice the coriander stalks and mix with the green chilli, vinegar, olive oil, orange zest, orange juice, sugar and salt.

 

Toss all together and heap on a plate with a big spoon of our smoky Brazilian Black Bean Stew - enjoy!
