Super quick and filling warm winter salad, protein rich to fuel your body for a busy afternoon.

“Broccoli is high in many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron and potassium. Broccoli also contains more protein than most other vegetables.Tomatoes are a good source of calcium and iron. They also contain decent amounts of phosphorus, sulfur, and potassium.” (1)

Ingredients

  • x 1 chicken breast
  • A couple of handfuls of kale
  • A handful of broccoli (we used purple sprouting)

  • Tamari or other gluten free soy sauce
  • Coconut Oil for frying

For the dressing

  • x 3 table spoons olive oil
  • x 1 table spoon of tahini

  • x 1 lemon, juice and zest

Method

  1. First make the dressing by combing the olive oil, tahini, honey, lemon juice and zest in a small bowl.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, slice the chicken breast and add to the pan.
  3. While the chicken is cooking bring a pan of water to the boil and blanch the broccoli and kale and drain.
  4. Remove chicken from pan and add the garlic and ginger, allow to fry for one minute and add the broccoli and kale.
  5. Stir fry for 3-4 minutes and add your chicken back in.
  6. Stir in your dressing and mix well. Just before serving add a dash of tamari.
  7. Serve into bowls and enjoy!

Eat immediately while warm.
