1 cup basmati rice
1 1/2 cups Pureharvest Coco Quench
1/2 fennel, thinly sliced
1/4 cup toasted almonds, crushed
2 Tbsp barberries
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander seed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 handful fresh mint, coriander and parsley, roughly chopped
1 big handful of rocket, roughly chopped
A few glugs of olive oil
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
To cook the rice, place rice and Coco quench in a small saucepan with the lid on, bring to the boil then lower to a simmer for 15 minutes.
To caramelise the fennel, place in a fry pan on medium heat with oil of choice (I use coconut oil) and stir occasionally until it begins to brown at the edges (about 5 minutes).
Cover the pan and leave for about 10 minutes or until the fennel is nice and soft.
Prepare the rest of your ingredients and toss everything together in a large serving bowl.
