  1. Rinse the quinoa, put it into a saucepan and cover with double the volume of cold water. Add a pinch of salt and cook gently for 10-15 minutes until tender. Drain in a sieve or colander and rinse with cold water to cool quickly.
  2. Share the quinoa between 2 serving bowls and arrange the apple, pear and avocado slices on top with the cheese and almonds.
  3. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, then serve.

Cook’s tip: Try Cheddar or Double Gloucester cheese instead of Red Leicester, and add a few seedless grapes if you like.
