Wash the quinoa in a sieve. Add to a pot with 450ml of water, a pinch of salt and the bay leaf. Bring to the boil then leave to simmer for 12 minutes.
Heat 1 tbsp of avocado oil in a pan and sauté the onion for 5 minutes until brown. Crush the garlic, chilli and throw it in and stir for 30 seconds. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes on a medium heat with a big pinch of salt, ground pepper and the thyme.
Once the quinoa is cooked pour it over the mushrooms and stir for a few minutes while you cook the cod.
Heat a frying pan to a medium to high heat and add 1 tbsp of avocado oil. Sear the fish for a minute each side for a total for 4 minutes, then start to prod it so it flakes. If it doesn’t flake easily, you might need to cook it a little longer.
Add the quinoa mushroom mix to your serving bowl of choice, and top with the flaked cod. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.
