Ingredients

For the Thai Basil Pesto:

  • 1/3 cup chopped coriander
  • 1/4 cup chopped Thai basil
  • 1/2 cup packed baby spinach
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cane sugar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 of a ripe avocado

For the Bowl:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice, still warm
  • 1/2 an avocado, cubed
  • 1 carrot, chopped roughly and steamed till tender
  • 1 small bunch of broccolini, steamed till tender
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • Zest of 1/2 a lemon
  • A tiny pinch of sea salt

Preparation

  1. Prepare the Thai basil pesto by blending all the pesto ingredients together in a food processor for a minute. You still want to be able to see flecks of the herbs, so don’t blend it until it’s super smooth. Set aside.
  2. To warm cooked rice, stir in 4 tablespoons of your Thai basil pesto and stir till mixed through.
  3. To steam broccolini, stir in 2 tablespoons of your Thai basil pesto and stir through.
  4. Place rice in a bowl, top with broccolini, carrot and avocado.
  5. At the last minute, heat a pan with oil and cook kale with lemon zest and salt till just wilted. Transfer wilted kale to your super massive bowl of food and enjoy.
