Using a vegetable peeler, shave the beetroot and cucumber into thin slices. Marinate the beetroot, cucumber and tomatoes in the olive oil, lemon juice, anchovies, capers and red wine vinegar.
Cook the quinoa according to package instructions. Drain and allow to cool slightly.
Toss the quinoa with the marinated vegetables, mint and decadent cream cheese bites to serve.
Chef's note: The shaved beetroot and cucumber marinate beautifully in the zingy dressing, soaking up all its fantastic flavours.
