Ingredients you'll need
  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 orange
  • 1 avocado*
  • A handful of coriander
  • A handful of mint
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 1 chilli
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Quarter your broccoli. Pop it into a food processor. Blitz till it looks like confetti or couscous. No food processor? Grate your broccoli over a large bowl.

  • 2.

    Peel your garlic. Finely grate it in with the broccoli. Grate or pare the lime zest and add it, along with the lime juice and a pinch of salt.

  • 3.

    Halve, stone and peel your avocado. Thinly slice. Finely chop your herbs (save a few nice bits to scatter over the top). Fold the avocado and herbs through the broccoli.

  • 4.

    Set a frying pan over medium heat. Add your cumin seeds. Toast till fragrant. Scatter them over the salad.

  • 5.

    Thinly slice your chilli (flick the seeds out for milder heat). Add 2 tbsp oil to your pan. Sizzle the chillis till a little crisp and golden. Spoon the chilli and the oil over the salad. Finish with the reserved herbs. Voilà. A party on a plate.

  • 6.

    *Stubborn avocado not ripening? Stick it in a paper bag with the banana we've included in your box. It should soften up in a day or two. Avocado nice and ripe? Just eat the banana!
