A delicious combination of spiced chicken, colourful vegetables and rice served with a gorgeous green parsley hummus.

Monday Morning Cooking Club Recipe Video Series: Number Two

Three simple recipes which combine to make a delicious and substantial salad with spiced chicken and rice. Serve with warmed pita bread, a wedge of lemon and a bowl of extra parsley hummus on the table. It can also be served with harissa alongside or chopped red chillies for a fiery option.

Leftovers will keep well stored in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.

Big shoutout to Georgia Samuel from Famish’d Melbourne for a wonderful recipe.

Instructions
Parsley Hummus:
  1. Start this recipe the day before if using dry chickpeas. Soak the chickpeas in water overnight. Drain and rinse, then place in a saucepan and cover generously with water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for an hour or until soft to bite. Rinse with cold water to stop cooking.
  2. For the hummus, place the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and water in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the chickpeas, parsley, salt and pepper and process for a few minutes until very smooth. If necessary, add more oil, water or lemon juice to suit your preferred consistency and taste. Taste for seasoning. Pour into a bowl and lightly stir the paprika through. Drizzle with olive oil to serve.
Chicken:
  1. For the chicken, mix together the olive oil, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and garlic and rub into the chicken. Place in the fridge to marinate while you make the salad, or overnight if desired.
  2. Barbecue or pan fry the chicken until cooked through. Arrange on top of the salad and dollop some of the hummus on top. Serve the rest in a bowl alongside.
Salad and Dressing:
  1. For the salad, cook the two types of rice in separate saucepans according to the packet instructions. Drain well and cool. Finely dice the capsicums, celery and spring onions into small pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Toast the pine nuts in a frying pan over medium heat, tossing constantly, until lightly browned. Remove from the pan immediately and set aside to cool.
  3. Add the pine nuts, coriander and pomegranate seeds to the diced vegetables. Combine well with rice and toss through the sunflower seeds.
  4. For the dressing, combine all the ingredients and mix well. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss. Tip onto a serving platter.

    This salad is wonderful. Don’t be put off by the mess of removing pom arils. I have a tool that was developed for home use by Israeli co-operative pomegranate farmers to pit the entire pomegranate in less than 2 minutes. It’s got a bowl, grid, and a dome top. I found it on eBay and they ship internationally from Israel. Now I look for recipes with pom arils. Even though I don’t eat celery or capsicums, I left them out and this salad was still terrific.

Feeling any chiffon cake vibes at your place?

We say it in the book and we’re going to say it again - this is one of the best cakes we have ever eaten.

We made it yesterday and we can confirm that it’s true. It’s just unbelievable and in these trying times, it offers such comfort to cut a huge frosting-slathered slice and just take a huge bite.
Follow our instastories to see it made step by step. It also helps to make a batch of pumpkin purée and freeze in exactly the right amount for the cake.

You can find this brilliant pumpkin chiffon recipe in Now For Something Sweet on p. 118.

We think it’s worth buying the book for this recipe alone. And we also have a ‘how to chiffon’ guide with pics and instructions to help you master the chiffon!

Grab your copy through @booktopiabooks or @amazonaustralia .

If you’re in Sydney eastern subs, you can also find it at the @wizo.nsw office or Berkelouw Rose Bay who will happily deliver.

Need Passover menu guidance?⁠

Look no further.⁠

Simply click on the link in our profile, and then click on the picture of this fabulous cake and it will take you right there.⁠

(and for those who will ask, this is a pic from our new book of Leah Koenig's INCREDIBLE Passover Pear Cake, in fact it may be worth buying the book for this recipe alone...)⁠

And there is still plenty of time to get the book before Pesach - check out our website, @booktopiabooks or @amazonau⁠
