healthy recipe idea

Ingredients

  • 200g cooked freekeh (or quinoa)
  • 2 oranges
  • 250g Ricotta
  • 30g Hazelnuts
  • 40g Micro leaf salad
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Westlands English Mix

Method

  1. Zest one of the oranges so that you have 1½ tsp zest.
  2. Segment both oranges and transfer to a bowl.
  3. Warm through the cooked freekeh in a pan. Rather than add a splash of water, add a splash of the orange juice from the remainder of the orange.
  4. Toast the hazelnuts in a frying pan until golden brown and then crush gently in a pestle and mortar or roughly chop with a knife.
  5. Put the ricotta, 1½ tsp orange zest and ⅓ tsp flaky sea salt into a food processor and blitz for 1-2 minutes until smooth and combined.
  6. Add the whipped ricotta to a plate, followed by the warm freekeh. Add your micro leaf and the orange segments. Top with crushed hazelnuts, a drizzle or both extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar and garnish with Westlands English Mix.
