Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Zest and juice the orange. Save the juice for later. Mix 2 tbsp honey with the orange zest and 1 tsp cumin. Pour in ½ tbsp oil and whisk with salt and pepper.

  • 2.

    Put the chicken breasts into an ovenproof dish. Pour over the honey marinade. Bake for 25 mins till the chicken is cooked through.

  • 3.

    Cut 2 kumatoes into 12 wedges. Place on a baking tray and drizzle with ½ tbsp oil. Season. Roast for 25 mins on the shelf below the chicken till softened and beginning to caramelise.

  • 4.

    Rinse the quinoa for 1-2 mins under cold water. Tip into a pan. Add a pinch of salt. Pour in 300 ml boiling water. Cover. Simmer over a low to medium heat for 15-20 mins or till the water is absorbed.

  • 5.

    Trim the carrots. Roughly chop them and chuck into a food processor. Blitz till you have carrot ‘rice’. If you don’t have a food processor, you can just coarsely grate the carrot.

  • 6.

    Dice the remaining kumatoes. Roughly chop the rocket and flat leaf parsley, stalks and all.

  • 7.

    Whisk the orange juice with 1 tsp cumin, 1 tbsp oil and seasoning. Put the cooked quinoa in a bowl and pour the dressing over. Fold together. Add the carrots, diced kumatoes, rocket and most of the parsley.
