Quinoa Sushi from The Biting Truth

Introducing the lovely girls from The Biting Truth, Alex and Anna. We met these two qualified dieticians and nutritionists on a food shoot for Stephanie Rice and we’re thrilled that they have been generous enough to share some creative recipe ideas with us. “Quinoa sushi makes for the perfect snack to serve when friends are coming around or you can enjoy a roll for lunch or even dinner.
