Method

Step 1

Cook the quinoa in boiling water for 15 minutes, ideally in the bottom half of a steamer pot. After the first 5 minutes add the salmon to the steamer and cook for about 10 minutes until opaque and flaky. Add the purple sprouting broccoli for the last 5 minutes. (Use a timer to help you - setting it for each 5 minute period.) Alternatively you could boil the broccoli and poach or oven bake the salmon if you prefer.

The purple sprouting broccoli can be broken up and mashed into the dish, or served on the side. Or perhaps try a bit of both to see which your little one prefers.100g of frozen peas can be substituted for the broccoli if you prefer, or you can use standard broccoli.
