I love my greens and this risotto is definitely full of the green stuff. Lemon, parsley and broccoli is a match made in heaven and sneaking those ingredients into a comforting risotto makes for the perfect warming winter meal.
This recipe is so easy and so adaptable. You can make it for just one person or multiply it by as many as you like. The chicken is succulent and full of flavour and the lentils are lick yout plate good. Once dish cooking at it’s best.
For me, summer means salad and BBQs and this salad is delicious with barbecued anything! It has great flavours and textures and is full of a variety of nutrient dense ingredients. I think kale has such fantastic flavour and texture when it’s treated correctly… but sometimes big undressed pieces of it can seem grassy or have a bit too much bite. Whenever I use it raw in a salad I like to roughly shred it and allow it to soak up flavour, it keeps its great texture still but doesn’t over power other ingredients. The lentils and quinoa keep mean that it works as a whole meal as well as in smaller portions as a side.
