This hearty salad which can be eaten warm or cold will set you up nicely for even the most challenging of days. The protein packed quinoa, juicy cabbage, feta and toasted seeds & nuts deliver a balanced mix of nutrients needed to support your healthy, active lifestyle.


Ingredients (4-6 meals):

1 red cabbage 500g, finely sliced (mandolin or by hand)

3 medium apples, washed and chopped in 1x1cm cubes (skin on)

2 onions finely sliced

4 Tbsp honey

1 Tsp Cinnamon

4 Tbsp of apple vinegar

150g dry Quinoa (white red brown or a mix) or 6 cups already cooked

100g Whole grain Couscous

4 Tsp Harissa mixed with 2 Tbsp olive oil

4 Tbsp raisins

1 bunch (20g)  of parsley roughly chopped

2 big handfuls of toasted roughly chopped nuts (e.g. almonds, cashews, sesame seeds)

1 pack of feta (200g), cut into 0.5x0.5cm or crumbled

Salt & Pepper to taste

200g Natural Yoghurt (yum option: mix in 4 Tbsp of tahini = sesame paste)



1. Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a big frying pan over medium to high heat, add the onions and fry for about 1 min. Then add the cabbage and apple, cinnamon and 4Tbsp of honey, salt and pepper. Sauté over medium heat for about 10 mins. The cabbage should still have a bit of a bite. Taste and add more seasoning as needed (It should have a balanced slight sweet and sour taste). Remove from heat.

2. Meanwhile cook the quinoa and couscous acc. to packaging instructions or use leftover quinoa/couscous. Once cooked, mix with Harissa-sauce, salt, pepper, raisins and chopped parsley.

3. Serve the quinoa and red cabbage mix on 4 plates, sprinkle with the yoghurt dressing, the feta, parsley and toasted nuts.
