Recipe

Cook Quinoa:

Place quinoa into fine sieve/colander and rinse well under cold water. Place quinoa in a pot with 1 cup water, then bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until all liquid has been soaked up and quinoa is tender and fluffy.

Prepare Ingredients:

Medium dice tomato and cucumber. Pick parsley and mint leaves and roughly chop (discarding stems). Roughly chop olives. Pat steak dry with paper towel and thinly slice into strips, toss in bowl with za'atar to coat strips well.

Cook Beef:

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a pan over medium-high until hot. Add the beef strips in an even layer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes or until the beef is browned and just cooked through.

Make Quinoa Salad:

In a bowl, combine cooked quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, mint, parsley and lemon juice (to taste). Drizzle with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper and mix well.

You Plate It:

Divide quinoa salad between plates and top with za'atar beef. Drizzle tzatziki over to garnish, along with any reserved mint and parsley. Enjoy!
