- Rinse the quinoa. Put it in a pan with a fitted lid and cover with 200ml water. Cook covered, over a medium heat for 15 mins or until fluffy and the water has been absorbed. Don’t worry if it catches on the bottom a little. Fork through to separate the grains, then leave to cool.
- Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a medium heat and toast the pumpkin seeds for 1 min or until they start to pop. Tip into a serving bowl with the watermelon, kale, avocado, mint, cucumber and feta. Toss through the quinoa, then squeeze over the lime juice with a pinch of seasoning. Top with the cress and serve.
