Serves 6 as a side dish, takes 20 minutes. 


  • 3/4 cup uncooked quinoa 
  • 500g raw brussels sprouts
  • Seeds of one large pomegranate
  • 1 red grapefruit, juiced
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup tahini


  1. Thoroughly rinse quinoa (this helps remove the bitter taste) and place in a medium pot with 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to the boil and then simmer, covered, around 15 minutes until all water is absorbed.
  2. Meanwhile, slice the brussels sprouts in half and remove the tough bottom pieces by cutting small triangles in the base. Finely shred the sprouts and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl add the grapefruit juice, balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil and salt and whisk until incorporated.
  4. When the quinoa is cooked, remove from the heat and add to a large serving bowl. Pour over the dressing and add the shredded brussels sprouts and pomegranate seeds. Stir gently to combine.
  5. Drizzle the salad with tahini and serve as the perfect festive side dish. Enjoy!
