It's also packed with complete plant-based protein, healthy fats, antioxidants and digestion friendly herbs & spices. Complete proteins are those which contain all essential amino acids, and whilst this is common in animal based proteins such as meat and eggs, plant proteins are often incomplete, making quinoa a superior option if you follow a plant-based lifestyle.We use avocado oil in the recipe too. You can swap this for other oils, but with avocado oil having a smoking point that's higher than both coconut and olive oil, this is our favourite choice. Coconut Oil's smoking point is around 175 degrees, with Olive Oil's going as low as 160 degrees.Knowing the smoking point of your cooking oil is important as once the limit is reached, your oil will begin releasing harmful chemicals known as free radicals that cause damage to our bodies. Work WITH your oil and use it appropriately. Avocado Oil has a smoking point of around 200 degrees, but to be on the safe side we heat ours to 185 in this recipe.The great thing is, if you're struggling to get hold of certain ingredients, you can mix and match - why not try swapping quinoa for lentils, or perhaps swap mint for basil. Make the variations that suit your pantry, what's in season, or what's available in the supermarket.
