Black badger peas are very northern and yet go amazingly well with Peruvian quinoa.


Fry your bacon until crispy

Add a bowl toss together your peas, bacon, tomatoes and quinoa

Add the lemon zest and juice and stir through

Add the balsamic and stir through, check for seasoning, remember that the bacon will add saltyness

Fold in the basil leaves

Serve on top of your choice of salad leaves and drizzle with a little oil

Top with some sprouts/cress/micro leaves if you are using
