Nutty Grain Salad

Bring the vegetable stock up to a boil over medium heat. Add the onion and stampkoring (pearled wheat), cover with a lid and simmer for 30 minutes, until tender. Drain off any excess water and stir in the Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil, vinegar, chickpeas, lentils and cashews. Allow to cool and season to taste.

Westfalia  Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil Mayo

Place the egg yolk, lemon juice and mustard into a food processor and blend until smooth. Add the Westfalia Garlic Flavoured Avocado Oil in a slow steady stream with the motor running. Once all of the oil has been incorporated and the mixture is thick, add the chives and season to taste.

To Serve

Divide the grain salad into serving dishes. Top each portion of salad with a dollop of the mayo, bacon and a poached egg. Garnish with micro herbs and serve with a few lemon wedges.

TIP: Omit the bacon for a vegetarian option or replace the bacon with smoked chicken, tinned tuna or shredded rotisserie chicken.
