Artichoke puree and skins

  1. Place the artichokes in a perforated steam tray and steam at 100°C for 30 minutes, or until soft.
  2. When cool enough to handle, cut a slit down one side and scoop out all the flesh, whilst attempting to keep the skin in 1 whole piece if possible.
  3. Place the flesh into a blender with the coconut milk and blend until you have reached a smooth consistency. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Brush the artichoke skins with coconut oil and season with a little salt. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and place in the Warming Drawer or in the Oven on Drying function at 80°C.
  5. Dehydrate for 3 hours or until crispy.

Grain salad

  1. Place the quinoa, brown rice and buckwheat in a solid steam tray with 450-500mls of water or stock. Steam at 100°C for 25 minutes.
  2. Place the cooked grains in a bowl, add the amaranth, nuts, seeds and chopped parsley.
  3. Whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, walnut oil, orange juice and zest and add to the salad.


  1. Mix together the cumin, sumac and garlic with some oil to make a paste and rub into the lamb.
  2. Place a pan on a medium-high heat, Induction 7. Once the pan is hot, add the lamb and cook for approximately 3 minutes each side, or until cooked to your liking.
  3. Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes. The Warming Drawer is ideal for this.
