Method

1. Place the quinoa in a small pan and boil around 300ml of water, pour the boiling water onto the quinoa (it should be enough to almost double the height of the quinoa).

2. Place the pan on the hob and allow quinoa to cook, the quinoa is done when it has all "popped" and all the water is absorbed, should take about 5-10 mins.

3. Set the quinoa aside to cool slightly.

4. Meanwhile cut the mangoes into chunks and place in a large bowl, add the coconut, sesame seeds, lime juice, butter beans and honey and mix well. Add in the cooked quinoa and mix again. Serve.
