1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa (300 g)
1 cup whole raw almonds, toasted and finely chopped (130 g)
4 green onions, thinly sliced (greens and white parts)
10-12 oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves, finely chopped (about 65 g)

METHOD:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F / 220°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Rinse the uncooked quinoa in a fine mesh strainer. Place in a medium saucepan and cook according to package instructions, for about 15 minutes.
