The healthy plate model is made up of 1/2 a plate of non-starchy veggies/salad, 1/4 plate of low GI carbohydrates, and 1/4 plate of protein. This recipe is great to make up and have for throughout the week for lunch!

 

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 x medium sweet potato diced

  • 2 onions cubed

  • 1 bunch of broccolini, chopped into 3cm segments

  • 1/2 an avocado

  • 1 tin of chickpeas, drained

  • 120g baby spinach

  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 tsp paprika

  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

 

Method:

1. Coat the potato and onion in cumin, garlic and paprika and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and place in the air fryer for 20 minutes (or oven at 180c for about 30 mins). Steam the broccolini by placing in a medium bowl, covering with a plate or glad wrap and microwaving for 3 minutes

2. In a large bowl, combine the broccolini, avo, spinach, coriander and chickpeas. Add the air fried potato and onion once they're cooked.

3. I topped mine with a decent sprinkle of sesame seeds and tzatziki as a dressing.
