Serving: 6 People

Description:

Kale, grains and toasted walnuts are the base for this healthy bowl. Toss with a chipotle lime vinaigrette and top with salmon, avocado, beans, peppers and coriander.

Ingredients:

Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette:

60ml extra virgin olive oil

3 tbsp lime juice

3/4 tsp chipotle chilli powder

Pinch black pepper

Salmon Bowl:

450g salmon fillets

140g kale 

500g cooked brown rice

120g California walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped (plus more for garnish)

25g fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped

Preparations:

2.) Cook salmon in a well-oiled frying pan over medium-high heat for 3 – 4 minutes on each side until just cooked throughout. Remove from the pan and remove skin. Let them cool, then cut into 1.5cm pieces.

3.) Mix kale and brown rice together in a large bowl and toss with vinaigrette. Place equal amounts on one side of 4 large salad bowls.

Dietitian Sian Porter says: “This delicious bowl is full of heart healthy ingredients. Essential fatty acids DHA and EPA in the salmon contribute to the normal function of the heart, maintaining healthy blood pressure and triglyceride levels*. The essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA in the California Walnuts helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels*. The veg, beans, wholegrains and California Walnuts are packed with fibre which is associated with a lower risk of both cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease. This bowl provides over one third (10.7g) of the UK adult daily fibre recommendation (30g) and 3 portions of vegetables per serving (3 of your ‘5 a day’).”
