Directions

  1. To plate this dish, prepare a base of quinoa and lentils in bowls. Top evenly with spinach, cherry tomatoes, and cheese. Finish with a 2 oz (60 g) serving of grilled chicken and a drizzle of pesto.

Chef’s Tip:
To take this recipe to the next level, try making a crispy parmesan tuile by melting your cheese into flat crispy golden disks and using these for a great textural contrast. Another idea for a delicious upgrade would be tossing some simple bread crumbs in white balsamic vinegar and chili flakes.
