We are back with our friends at My Market Kitchen to share this fresh Garden Greens with Goats Cheese and Toasted Almonds recipe that goes great with our Spaghetti & Meatballs. Find the full recipe below.

Serves: 4

You will need:

  • 1 cup snow peas, topped and tailed
  • 1 cup green beans, topped and tailed
  • ½ head broccoli
  • 2 bunches fresh asparagus, woody ends removed
  • Extra virgin olive oil spray
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup enoki mushrooms
  • Squeeze lemon juice
  • 40g goats cheese
  • 30g flaked almonds^

Method

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the snow peas, green beans, broccoli and asparagus and blanch for 1 minute or until the greens go vibrant in colour. Strain immediately. Note. If preparing in advance, plunge the vegetables into a bowl of iced water so that they remain crisp and bright green in colour.
  2. Spray a pan with oil and cook the garlic and mushrooms over a medium heat until lightly browned. Add blanched vegetables and lemon juice to the pan and toss to combine.
  3. Toast almonds in a non-stick fry pan or in the oven for a few minutes until golden.
  4. Arrange vegetables on a serving platter and sprinkle with goats cheese and toasted almonds. Serve with Jenny Craig’s Spaghetti & Meatballs!
