TIP The longer you leave the salad in the fridge, the tastier it gets – but make sure you add the lettuce just before serving.

SESAME AND AVO POKÉ BOWLS

Poké bowls are traditionally made with fresh salmon. Our version is budget-friendly and even yummier! We dip the avo in a delicious sauce and toasted sesame seeds and use it instead of salmon.

TIP Add a small pile of pickled ginger in the middle of each bowl (if using) and serve.

GUACAMOLE FOR THE FREEZER

Make one or all four flavours. The guacamole can be frozen in airtight plastic containers to be enjoyed later if you like. Just drizzle a little oil over the surface before you seal the containers and freeze for up to a month.

SPICY AVO SALSA AND BRINJAL PIZZAS

Meat won’t be missed in these delicious brinjal pizzas. The salsa ensures they’re substantial and wholesome, making them a perfect meatless meal.
