Cajun quinoa stuffed mushrooms, served with golden sweet potato chips and a sunny nectarine salad.
1. Heat oven to 220°C. Cut potatoes into chips. Toss on lined oven tray with 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes. Remove mushroom stem and coat caps with oil. Add to second lined tray and roast for 10 minutes.

2. Place quinoa in a saucepan and cover with plenty of water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse (continue to step 5).

3. Whisk together 2 tbsp vinegar, 2 tsp maple syrup and 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. Slice avocado, nectarine and drained roasted peppers. Toss together with mesclun leaves and dressing.

5. Reheat saucepan over medium heat with 1 tbsp oil. Add quinoa, stir in 2 tsp cajun spice and 1 tbsp tomato paste. Cook for 3-4 minutes until combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon into mushroom cups after they have roasted.
