This recipe uses both solid and blended foods together to create a delicious meal that has a range of consistencies!

You’re about to discover that broccoli and almonds mixed with coconut milk, veg stock, and lemon is such an amazing flavour. What’s more, it’s an incredible source of goodness.

What’s healthy about lemons?

Lemons might be small but they are often referred to as powerhouses thanks to the high nutrient count within. Just one squeeze of lemon juice is enough to provide your body with a dose of phytonutrients and antioxidants! Lemon juice is known to be healing with antibiotic effects.

How about almonds?

The almonds, which you will have to pre-soak before you get started, contain a selection of antioxidants as well as a multitude of vitamins and minerals. Almonds are also a fantastic source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which are essential for keeping LDL cholesterol levels down.

Spiralizing Carrots

In addition to the nutrition, making this dish involves spiralizing the carrots which is a fun and interesting way to prepare them! If you don’t own a spiralizer yet then you can click here to buy one!

Ingredients

So to make this dish for four people, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 4 medium carrots, spiralized
  • 50g of almonds (soaked for 3-4 hours)
  • 200g of broccoli
  • 1/2 a tin of coconut milk
  • 1/2 a cup of veg stock
  • Squeeze of 1 lemon
  • A large handful of pumpkin seeds
  • A large handful of currants
  • Salt and pepper

Method

When making this dish, I prefer to steam the broccoli so that it’s soft but not overcooked. However, if you don’t have a steamer then it’s absolutely fine to boil, just make sure  you don’t overdo it!

Once the broccoli is cooked, combine it with the almonds, broccoli, coconut milk, veg stock and lemon in your food processor or blender. You should then blitz it well until it’s nearly a puree.

The next step is to thoroughly mix with the spiralized carrots and then top with currants and pumpkin seeds before you season with salt and pepper.  Yes, it’s that easy and super yummy too!
