This recipe is perfect for summer. It contains a lot of different fresh (uncooked) vegetables, so it is full of many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
- 1/2 organic chicken, poached, skin torn into bite sized pieces
- 1/2 cup dried cannelini beans, soaked overnight in cold water
- 1 leek, trimmed and sliced into 1cm pieces
- 1 baby fennel bulb, trimmed, cored and chopped
- 4 organic tomatoes, chopped
- 2 red capsicums, sliced into 5 cm pieces
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil
- 1 cup basmati rice
- 1.5 L (or 6 cups) chicken stock
- 1 small fresh red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
- 1 small bunch thyme (5-6 large sprigs)
- 1 portion of capsicum and walnut pistou
- Cooked the drained cannelini beans in simmering water for about 30 minutes, until they are just tender (but not cooked completed).
- Drain the beans and set aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot.
- Cook the leek, fennel and garlic over low heat until they are soft.
- Add chilli, tomatoes and thyme leaves and cook over high heat until the tomatoes are soft and pulpy.
- Add the chicken stock and rice and simmer uncovered over medium heat until the rice is just about cooked - for about 10 minutes.
- Add the beans and cook for a further 5 minutes or until everything is tender.
- Add the poached chicken pieces and stir through to combine.
- Add 1/3 of the capsicum and walnut pistou into the pilaf and mix through to combine.
- Season with salt and simmer for a further 5 minutes.
- Serve garnished with the thyme leaves and the rest of the capsicum and walnut pistou in a small bowl as extra sauce.
This is a great recipe for the family, but it can be easily served at a dinner party - it can be prepared earlier and reheated prior to the guests arriving.Advertisement
