I don’t recommend hiding veggies, here’s is why. However in this dish I put them through a food processor, and used them to enhance taste and texture! I served this on a bed of couscous and a side of Thaï hot sauce.

Preparation: 10min, Cooking: 10-15min

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast: 400-600g
  • Carrots: 200g
  • Spinach: 150g
  • Shallots: 1
  • Origano: 2 tsp
  • Olive oil: 3tbsp
  • Side of Thai hot sauce or tomato relish
  • Bread crumb: 30g
______________
Couscous: 250g
Butter:20g
Cooked as per instructions
Let’s do it:
  1. Cook the spinach in water with some salt: spinach is better off cooked in salted water (the salt limits the leaching of minerals, the cooking in water reduces oxalic acid, which interferes with calcium absorption).
  2. Drain and set aside
  3. In a food processor blitz 1 by 1 to your preferred texture:
  • The carrots and shallots
  • The chicken with origano, salt and pepper.
  • The spinach.
  1. Blend together.
  2. Shape the patties and roll in breadcrumbs.
  3. Cook in a hot pan with olive oil.
  4. Serve with couscous

Bon appétit
