This is a fun recipe to make - don't be put off by the instructions as it's actually very quick once everything is assembled and ready to go!
To make more, just double or quadruple the ingredients - it doesn't take much longer.

A lovely way to eat quinoa. The beetroot and the onions give a touch of sweetness which contrasts so well with the slight bitterness of the grain. The garnish also adds that extra bit of class, making it an interesting Christmas starter or part of a main meal.
This is a relatively budget recipe
- if you already have balsamic vinegar and olive oil in the cupboard. If you don't, substitute with other oil and cider vinegar (but reduce the vinegar by half and add 1 tsp sugar).
A lovely, easy fruit cake that is good at just about any time of the year, although especially nice during the festive season. It isn't so dark and heavy as traditional Christmas cake but none the worse for that!
See how we made it by viewing our slideshow at the bottom of the page.
PS - never overmix vegan cakes and don't use an electric mixer - eggless cakes don't benefit from over-beating, quite the opposite.
