Pesto Chicken with Quinoa and Edamame salad

(Serves 4)

Delicious Gluten Free recipe at The British Hamper CompanyIngredients

2 large chicken breasts

6 tbsp pesto, jar or homemade (see below for a pesto recipe)

300g quinoa

600ml chicken stock

Handful of fresh mint, finely chopped

300g edamame beans

2 avocados, thinly sliced

150g Mangetout

1 spring onion, finely chopped

1 onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp honey

2 tbsp oil

 

Method

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.Season the chicken breasts and coat in pesto then place on a lined baking tray and cook for about 25 minutes, until cooked through.

Place the quinoa in a saucepan and cover with the chicken stock. Bring to the boil and cook for about 15 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed. Drain the quinoa and leave to cool.

While waiting for the quinoa to cool slightly and chicken to cook, make the dressing. Combine the soy sauce, lime juice, honey and oil and mix well. Season to taste.

Place the quinoa into a large bowl and add all ingredients except the chicken and dressing. Mix well.

Slice the chicken and top the salad with the chicken and drizzle over the dressing.

This salad can be enjoyed warm or cold.

Pesto ingredients

50g pine nuts

80g basil

50g parmesan

150ml oil

2 garlic cloves

Method

Heat a small frying pan over a low heat. Cook the pine nuts for a couple of minutes until golden, shaking occasionally.Place all ingredients into a food processor and blitz until smooth and season to taste.

 

Cacao and avocado mousse

(Makes 5 desserts)

Ingredients

70g cacao powder

4 ripe avocados

4 tbsp agave syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Toppings

Strawberries, cut into quarters (this can be substituted for any preferred fruit)

Nut Butter

Crème fraiche

Method

In a food processor, mix the avocado, cacao powder, agave and vanilla essence until the mixture has a smooth and dark consistency.

Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Divide the mixture into small glasses (the mixture is incredibly rich!). Top with a layer of nut butter, then the strawberries. Finish the dessert with a small blob of creme fraiche and enjoy!

 

Quinoa, kale and pistachio burgers

(Serves 4)

Ingredients

150g quinoa

45g home-shelled pistachios

1 cauliflower

handful kale, finely chopped

handful fresh parsley, finely chopped

handful fresh coriander, finely chopped

1 egg, beaten

1 tbsp onion seeds

1 tbsp rapeseed oil

2 tbsp gluten free crackers, blitzed to crumbs

2 tbsp gluten free flour

2 tbsp garlic powder

Salt and pepper

 

Method

First, cook the quinoa in a saucepan and put in enough water to cover 1cm over the grains. Bring to the boil and then cook for about 12 minutes.

Drain the quinoa, rinse under cold water and leave to cool. Make sure to drain well, otherwise the burgers will have too much moisture and won’t hold.

Next, in a food processor, blitz the pistachios and cauliflower florets, until they resemble crumbs.

Place the quinoa and pistachio and cauliflower crumbs in a large bowl and mix well. Add all remaining ingredients and combine well.

Chill the mixture in the fridge, until firm. Once firm, mould the mixture into about 8 round patties.

Chill in the fridge until ready to grill.

Place the burgers on the lined baking tray and grill on a medium heat, for about 12 mins until golden brown and crisp on both sides. Make sure to turn the burgers a few times throughout the 12 minutes.

We served the burgers with spicy sweet potato fries and homemade coleslaw, but these delicious, healthy burgers are perfect with a multitude of sides, so get creative!

I can only comment on the service and delivery ( which were both very good ). I have purchased this beautifully boxed hamper as a gift for christmas, so I'm hoping that the contents are as good as the above mentioned. Well packaged and arrived on my suggested date. Thank you.

First time I have used this company. I chose my hamper from their web site but rang to place the order. The firm's operator was extremely helpful, even ringing me back when the phone cut off. The hamper was delivered as it said the next day. As it was a thank you gift I didn't see the hamper but the recipients were delighted with its presentation and contents. I would most certainly recommend this company and would be more than happy to use their services again. Excellent.

I particularly liked the Gluten Free Offering, which seems to be an increasing trend, although in our case and absolute medical requirement - not a lifestyle choice. So, thank you for providing this and the products offered were very appreciated and new to my wife.

My friends were absolutely thrilled when their hamper arrived and described it as "a huge box with classy wrapping and a beautiful navy blue bow, filled with lovely treats." "Exquisite in every way","so professional" and "perfect" were just some of their additional comments. I really want to thank you so much Sam for all your help and suggestions - you made arranging their hamper so easy and a very pleasant experience for me as well - one that I intend to repeat! 5 Stars Plus.

What a wonderful company to deal with. I found the website very easy to use and then put in a telephone order in which I was dealt with in a helpful and polite way by the lady on the phone. The hamper arrived the next day and was very well received. 10/10

After a failed order from Betty's Tea Room to ship to Singapore, I found The British Hamper Company and ordered a hamper for my brother. It arrived 2.5 days later (I ordered it on a Monday afternoon and it was received in Singapore before 11:00 loccal time on Thursday). And best of all, the prices shown included delivery, so there were no nasty surprises when going to the checkout. Very good service and my brother was very happy with his present. Will be using these guys again for orders to international family ( Singapore, Australia, US).

Great service - good value products and quick delivery. The only downside was communications from customer service were lacking as I didn't know when a hamper had been despatched or delivered (although I was given a way to track this with the courier company themselves)

Hamper was ordered for some friends in the United States. I was a bit sceptical about the stated delivery time.....as it looked really quick! The hamper was indeed delivered on the exact date specified and our friends were delighted with the quality of the contents :) Mike T (United Kingdom)

My sister loved the hamper I sent her. I was disappointed though that it did not contain the flapjack biscuits as they are divine. A second fruit cake had been substituted so no loss of items in the contents Thank you

Excellent service. So fast and efficient, my relatives in Canada were delighted with the contents of their hamper and thrilled with the surprise. The tracking service was fascinating to follow, I could picture my hamper as it travelled through all the checkpoints and it arrived 2 days before it's predicted delivery date. Will definitely use this company again.

It is a pity the rating only goes up to 5 stars, the service from the British Hamper Company is worthy of much more. From my first order all the way through to the delivery in Japan, everything was first class. I will be ordering a Christmas hamper soon. Highly recommended, thank you. Mr E. Green.
