Give this low fodmap quinoa lunch a go!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


  • 75g quinoa
  • 25g feta cheese
  • 50g pancetta
  • 1/2 bell pepper
  • 1 medium-sized courgette
  • A quarter of a small avocado

For the yogurt dressing:

  • Two tablespoons of plant based yogurt (we used coconut)
  • One tablespoon of olive oil
  • Half a squeezed lemon
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • A handful of fresh herbs (we used mint)


  • Boil a pan of water on the stove and cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions. Whilst the quinoa is cooking, slice the vegetables and lightly fry or put into an air fryer for 18 minutes on 180 degrees. Add the pancetta 3-4 minutes before the vegetables are cooked.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients and set aside. Drain the quinoa when cooked.
  • Slice the avocado and crumble the feta into a serving bowl. Pile on the quinoa and roasted vegetable mixture and top with the yogurt dressing.
