Rinse the quinoa very well in cold water. Transfer to a saucepan and add a little salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 12 to 14 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat and rinse with cold water. Drain well and then set aside.

Boil the rice according to the pack instructions, until tender, then mix together with the quinoa.
Heat 30ml of olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion until golden brown. Remove from the heat and add the garlic, orange juice and zest, and lemon juice.

Chop up the dried fruit roughly. Cut the rocket into smaller pieces. Add to the quinoa and rice mixture along with the yellow pepper. Stir gently. Chill until ready to pack or serve. Serve or sell garnished with rocket.
