Online Shop closed until further notice

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

Shop Price Increase
From 6th April 2020 prices in the shop will increase slightly, this is due to production costs and card processing fees increasing.

Lamb & Quinoa Salad

Back to Recipe list
Quinoa, my favourite, most versatile gluten free grain, it can practically be served with anything, sweet or savoury. In this dish we use the naturally gluten free grain in a salad served with lean lamb steaks. A speedy summer dish great as a quick throw together dish, why not do the lamb on the BBQ!

Tree Nuts


1. Place the quinoa in a pan of cold water and place on the hob over a medium heat. Allow to cook for around 15 mins until done (the quinoa is cooked when it has popped).

2. While waiting for the quinoa, place the lime juice, honey, oil, mint, parsley and coriander (you can use dried of fresh herbs) in a bowl and mix well. Set aside.

3. Prepare the cucumber by cutting into chunks and chop the cherry tomatoes in half, also set aside to go in with the quinoa later.

4. Prepare the lamb by rubbing the peppercorns on both sides of the steaks then pop in a frying pan with a little oil and fry for 3-4 mins on each side or a bit longer if you prefer it more well done.

5. When the quinoa is cooked, drain off the water and allow to cool for a few minutes, somewhat like couscous, quinoa doesn't take long to cool. Once cooled a bit, place in the bowl with herb mixture and stir well to coat the quinoa, add in the cucumber and tomatoes and spoon out onto plates. By now you should have a warm if not fully cold quinoa salad.

6. Once the lamb is cooked to your satisfaction serve up with the quinoa salad.
