{

Ingredients

}

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

2 organic chicken breasts

Garnish (optional):

2 peppers / capsicums, thinly sliced

dried orange peel

1 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes

lemon zest

2 tbsp pine nuts

slice of lemon

2 tbsp pepitas

optional TOPPING:

1 cup cooked brown rice

top with pumpkin seeds and buckinis

1 head broccoli 1/2 cup green beans

Prepare the base by combining all dry base ingredients in a food processor until crumbly. Add lemon juice, a little at a time, until a sticky dough is formed. Press base evenly into a 9� silicone cake tin, or two medium food rings. Refrigerate while you make the filling.

1/2 cup snow peas / mange tout

In a high-speed blender, combine cashews with coconut oil and lemon juice until smooth. This may take up to 5 minutes, scraping down the sides as you go. Once smooth, add the lemon zest and honey and combine again.

Roast tomatoes and peppers in oven for 15 minutes. Steam greens for 5 minutes. Toast pepitas and pine nuts in a hot, dry pan for a few minutes until just browned. When cooked, remove chicken from oven and slice into strips (watch those fingers!). Layer all ingredients in a bowl with rice, then drizzle with the remaining balsamic juices and olive oil. Season to taste and serve immediately.

Pour filling on top of base(s) and freeze for 2 hours. Once set, remove and allow to come to room temperature, then serve with additional lemon zest, a slice of lemon and dried orange peel. + Serves 6 + Preparation: 30 min. Cooking Time: (freezing) 2 hours

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 1 tbsp cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil (to drizzle) salt and pepper to taste

{ Tip } Replace brown rice with quinoa or lentils if you prefer. Vegetarian option: omit chicken and top with a soft-boiled egg. + Serves 2 + Preparation: 10 min. Cooking Time: 20 min.
