a sustainable diet - Katie & Atha go Masterchef

Katie and Atha both took on the challenge of creating some Livewell recipes for the rest of us - we think they might have Masterchef aspirations.

Katie - masterchef
Katie gives us spiced rice salad and prawn fajitas.

Spiced Rice Salad - serves 1

Ingredients: 75g brown rice, 1 x apple (ideally nice and crunchy), 1 x pepper (your choice of colour) and some peas.

Dressing: Tablespoon natural yoghurt, teaspoon garam masala

  1. cook rice and allow to cool
  2. chop up apple and pepper, cook peas and allow them to cool
  3. mix apple, pepper and peas into cooked rice
  4. mix yoghurt and garam masala and taste - change quantities to taste preference
  5. stir in dressing to rice mix

Can be made ahead for a lunchbox - but make sure you only cut up the apple just before eating to stop it from going brown. Optional extras to add would be steamed chicken or salad.

Prawn Fajitas - use the per person quantities from the Livewell menu

  1. fry onion
  2. add prawns and some yummy fajita spice mix
  3. add pepper
  4. serve with some lettuce and fajita wraps

Optional extras - kidney beans or use chicken instead of prawns.

Atha shows us his prowess in the vegetarian kitchen with Spinach and Chickpeas.

Ingredients: a tin of chickpeas, 200g spinach, 3 tomatoes (depulped and sliced), 3-4 cloves of garlic, 1 red chilli (remove seeds and slice), 1/2 teaspoon cumin, seasoning (salt, pepper and oregano), olive oil.

  1. sautee garlic and chilli in oil
  2. once oil is hot and garlic has just softened, add cumin (for 10 seconds)
  3. add the tin of drained chickpeas, stir to ensure that they are coated with the flavoured oil
  4. after a couple of minutes add the tomatoes and stir, cook for a couple of minutes
  5. add the spinach, once it is all wilted add some of the juice from the tinned chickpeas
  6. add seasoning
  7. stir and allow to reduce by a third

We hope that you enjoy trying out their recipes.
