The Beauty Chef

These were a huge crowd-pleaser; comprised of crunchy, creamy chicken salad remoulade, fresh veggies, and gorgeous spinach crepes (find the recipe in her book or use your favorite gluten-free tortillas as a substitute), these lunch wraps are delicious, satisfying, and packed full of nutrients.

Serves 4

1 organic skinless chicken breast

4 millet and linseed and spinach wraps (or use your favorite gluten-free tortilla)

2 large handfuls snow peas (mangetout) sprouts

4 medium radishes, coarsely grated

for the celariac and roasted almond remoulade:

300 g (10-½ ounces) celeriac, peeled and coarsely grated

½ cup mayonnaise**

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup roasted almonds, coarsely chopped

himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper

**for the mayonnaise:

2 large egg yolks

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

¾ cup light-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

Himalayan salt and ground white pepper, to taste

1. To prepare the mayonnaise, place the egg yolks, vinegar, and mustard in a small food processor and blend to combine. With the motor running, gradually pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream, until fully incorporated and thick and creamy. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer into a small serving bowl and set aside.

2. To poach the chicken, bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer. Add the chicken breast and gently simmer for 6 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave the chicken in the water for 15 minutes, to finish cooking. Once cool enough to handle, shred the chicken into strips and set aside.

3. To prepare the celeriac and roasted almond remoulade, combine the celeriac, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and oil in a medium bowl and mix well. Add the shredded chicken and roasted almonds and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper.

4. To assemble, spread the remoulade down the centre line of the wraps. Top with snow pea sprouts and radish. Fold the sides in and roll up to enclose.
