    Fennel, clementine & goat’s cheese grain salad

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 2


    15g pecans
    ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 tsp clear honey
    2 tsp cider vinegar
    4 clementines
    1 fennel bulb
    250g pouch spelt, quinoa, red rice and wild rice
    2 red chicory bulbs, leaves separated
    50g black salad olives
    50g soft goat’s cheese (such as No.1 Moody’s Rosary Ash), crumbled


    1. Put a small frying pan over a low heat and toast the pecans for 2-3 minutes, until fragrant. Tip onto a board and roughly chop. To make the dressing, whisk together the oil, honey, vinegar and the juice of 2 clementines in a large bowl; season.

    2. Use a sharp knife (or a mandolin, if you have one) to finely slice the fennel, reserving the fronds. Toss the fennel with the dressing. Heat the grain pouch according to pack instructions and tip into the bowl. Peel the remaining 2 clementines and slice into rounds. Add these to the bowl along with the chicory leaves and olives, then mix to combine. Top with the goat’s cheese, pecans and fennel fronds to serve.
