Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the quinoa and cook for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together the dressing ingredients and set aside.
With a minute to spare in the cooking time, pour the peas into the boiling quinoa.
Once the quinoa and peas are cooked, drain well and mix together with the drained black beans, spinach leaves and pepper. Mix well to wilt the spinach slightly.
Divide between two plates, and drizzle over the satay dressing. Serve while warm.
