Recipe: Herby Quinoa

Tastes of Summer with Sumac flavoured Quinoa

We haven’t had the best of summers in Scotland so cheer up with some colour and some sweet sumac.  This dish works really well with fish, esp salmon as well as lamb burgers (which we will have a recipe for next).

The quinoa makes for a lighter accompaniment than rice.
