Instructions

Cook the Quinoa
1
  • Boil a large pot of salted water for the quinoa.
  • Stir in the quinoa and bring back to the boil.
  • Cook until the quinoa has doubled in size and the seed has visibly split, 12-15 mins.
  • Drain in a sieve and return to the pot, off the heat.
  • Cover with a lid and set aside.

TIP: If you're in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Fry the Mince
2
  • Meanwhile, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat (without oil). 
  • Once hot, fry the beef mince and sliced pepper until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break up the beef as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
Simmer the Sauce
3
  • Add the cumin, ground coriander, and half the cinnamon (double for 4p) to the mince
  • Mix together and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Stir in the chopped tomatoes, ¼ tsp salt and ½ tsp sugar (double both for 4p).
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 8-10 mins.
Make the Sweetcorn Side
4
  • Meanwhile, drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
  • Roughly chop the fresh coriander (stalks and all).
  • Quarter the lime.
  • Mix the drained quinoa with the corn, paprika and juice from half the lime wedges.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Once the fragrant beef mince is ready, remove the pan from the heat. 
  • Stir in the creme fraiche and allow to warm through, 1-2 mins.
  • Add a splash of water to loosen if required.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Divide the mince between plates.
  • Serve the quinoa and corn alongside. 
  • Garnish with chopped coriander.
