1/3 cup red quinoa, rinsed well
3 tablespoons 2 percent Greek yoghurt
Juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped, plus leaves for garnish
3 tablespoons drained and rinsed canned black beans
3 tablespoons salsa
1/4 small avocado, sliced
2 radishes, cut into thin matchsticks
1 tablespoon pepitas ( pumpkin seeds)

Bring 1 cup water, the quinoa and a pinch of salt to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the quinoa is tender and the water is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat, and let sit, covered, for at least 5 minutes (the dish can be served warm or at room temperature).

Whisk together the yoghurt, lime juice, coriander and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.

Put the cooked quinoa in a cereal bowl, and top with the yoghurt mixture, beans, salsa, avocados, radishes and pepitas in neat piles or rows. Garnish with coriander.
