Avocado Salad, clean eating alice, by healthista.com

Ingredients:

  • Two whole eggs
  • Three slices of chorizo
  • Half a ripe avocado
  • Large handful of kale
  • Mixed seeds (I use Munchy Seeds)
  • Cider Vinegar

Method:

  1. Fill a saucepan with water and a dash of cider vinegar and bring to boil
  2. Once boiled, turn the heat down right away so that it is gently simmering. Break the first egg into a ladle before carefully pouring into the water. Repeat for the second egg.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the slices of chorizo into quarters before placing in a frying pan on a high heat. Once the chorizo has produced a little oil, add the kale to the frying pan and leave to cook until the kale has softened.
  4. Plate up the kale and chorizo and sprinkle with seeds.
  5. Remove the avocado from the skin and slice into segments.
  6. Finally remove the eggs from the water (they should need between 2 and 4 minutes) using a slotted spoon so that all excess water can drain, and plate, seasoning with a little salt and pepper if desired.

Ingredients:

  • One tin of sardines
  • One whole egg

  3. Using your hands, take a small amount of the mixture and begin to form into small round balls, before placing to stand on a plate or chopping board.
  4. Once you have completed this for the whole mixture, heat a small amount of coconut oil in a frying pan before placing a few balls to fry, gently flattening them slightly as they cook with a spatula.

  9. Meanwhile, fill a saucepan to about ¾ full with water, and put on a high heat to boil.
  10. Once boiling, place the broccoli into to the pan and leave to cook for about 6 minutes or until quite soft. Drain and leave to stand for a few minutes. Using a food processor, blitz the broccoli until it resembles rice.
  11. Remove the mince from the heat and plate up alongside your broccoli rice and roasted parsnips.
