1 Place quinoa and 3/4 cup of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring pan occasionally, for 10–12 minutes, until quinoa is tender and liquid is absorbed. Transfer to a large bowl. Set aside to cool slightly.
2 Meanwhile, combine half of the juice and half of the oil in a medium bowl. Add the lamb and toss to coat. Then thread lamb onto 8 skewers. Heat a chargrill or BBQ plate over medium-high heat. Cook lamb and peaches, turning, for 5 minutes, or until the peaches are charred and lamb is cooked to your liking.
3 Place the peaches, tomatoes, beans and rocket in the bowl of quinoa. Drizzle over with the remaining juice and oil. Toss to combine. Serve quinoa salad with the lamb skewers.
