Simmer the quinoa in the 2 cups of water for 20 minutes or until cooked and then put into a mixing bowl to cool. Cook the corn kernels in boiling water for 2 minutes then drain and cool.. Add everything to quinoa and mix. Taste for seasoning and serve.

Looks so good Gill! They are always great, but a particularly good combination of veg for us this week! Just made a veggie lasagne with the squash, leeks and mushroom. Yum! X
