COOKING TIME: 45 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS

PROTEIN/CARB

50g (2oz) oat groats a drizzle of olive oil a pinch of sea salt

MAIN VEG

juice of 1⁄2 grapefruit
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon pink peppercorns
a pinch of sea salt
a sprig of fresh oregano
1 head of broccoli

SAUCE

juice of 1⁄2 grapefruit
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil sea salt, to taste

TOPPING

1 tablespoon pink peppercorns, crushed a sprinkle of fresh oregano
a sprinkle of poppy seeds
1⁄2 grapefruit, divided into segments

METHOD

PROTEIN/CARB

Place the oat groats in a pan with 150ml (5 oz) water, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes until the water is absorbed and the groats soften, taking care not to burn the bottom of the pan and topping up with more water if necessary.

MAIN VEG

Place the grapefruit juice with the olive oil, pink peppercorns, sea salt and oregano in a resealable bag and swirl to combine. Add the broccoli, ensure it is evenly coated and set aside to marinade for at least 30 minutes, and ideally overnight.

Preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F)/gas mark 3. Place the broccoli on a baking tray (sheet) lined with baking paper and cover in the marinade. Wrap up tightly in the paper and cook for 10 minutes, then uncover and bake for a further 15–20 minutes, until tender.

SAUCE

In a bowl, combine the grapefruit juice, olive oil and sea salt.

ASSEMBLING

Spoon the groats onto a plate and lay the broccoli on top. Drizzle over the sauce and scatter over the toppings.
