MEXICAN BOWLS

{ THIS MEXICAN-INSPIRED DINNER IS A SIMPLE, BUT DELICIOUS MEAL, THAT CAN BE WHACKED IN A BOWL. IT’S A TASTY SPIN ON FAJITAS, WITHOUT THE NEED FOR EXPENSIVE OR BREAKAGE-PRONE GLUTEN FREE WRAPS! }

{ INGREDIENTS }

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

500 grams chicken breast

1 packet (30 grams) gluten free taco spice mix

3 cups pre-cooked brown rice

1 bunch coriander, finely chopped

1/4 cup lime juice

1 tablespoon minced garlic

10 cherry tomatoes, diced

2 avocados, mashed

210 grams tinned black beans, drained

1/4 cup gluten free tomato salsa

1/2 lettuce, roughly chopped

{ METHOD }

Chop the raw chicken into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add the oil and taco spice mix, and stir until all the chicken pieces are well-coated. Cover in cling film and refrigerate for one hour to allow the chicken to marinate.

Meanwhile, place the pre-cooked rice into a medium-sized saucepan. Add the coriander, garlic and lime juice, and stir until the mixture is hot.

Add the black beans into a pan with one-quarter cup of water. Stir until the beans are warmed, then strain well.

To build your bowl, place the rice at the bottom, then top with the salsa, diced tomatoes, avocado mash, black beans and lettuce.

Remove chicken from the fridge, and cook in a hot non-stick pan until golden and cooked-through. Add to the top of your bowl and dinner is served.

Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
