  • ½ tsp raw honey

  • ½ tsp sea salt and pepper


  • 1.

    Heat ghee or coconut oil in a small frying pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onion on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, until golden.

    Add chicken mince and garlic and stir for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat, breaking it apart. Add turmeric, lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper and cook, stirring frequently, for a further 3-4 minutes. Set aside.

    While chicken is cooking, bring a small saucepan of water to boil. Add broccolini and cook for 2 minutes. Rinse under cold water and cut into 3-4 pieces each.

    Place chopped kale in a salad bowl and pour over the dressing. Using your hands, toss and massage the kale with the dressing to soften the kale.
