CARROT
Like all colourful vegetables, carrots are a gold mine of antioxidants such as carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Beta-carotene in carrots helps protect vision (yes your grandmother was right!). A high intake of carotenoids has been linked with a significant decrease in post-menopausal breast cancer, as well as prostate cancer.

Cut the chicken in 1/2 cm slices.¬†In a small pan, add the¬†oil ¬†(1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp) and the chicken slices and salt (1 pinch, 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp). Cook on medium heat until fully cooked ‚Äď about 7 minutes. Place the cooked chicken in a bowl and set a¬†side.¬†

Note: Ensure the chicken cooked to a minimal internal temperature of 145F.

2

Preparation: Rinse and dry all produces. Slice the snap peas in half. Separate the fresh mint leaves.  

3

Cook the peas: Use the same pan you cooked the chicken. Place the pan on medium heat, add the oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 1/2 tsp ) and the snap peas and fresh peas (in 1 bag). Stirring regularly cook about 3 minutes.

4

Cook the pasta: Add the pasta to the boiling water, stir, cover & cook 10 minutes or until desired texture. Once the pasta is cooked, save pasta water (1/4 cup, 1/2 cup, 3/4 cup) and set aside. Drain the pasta using a colander & add to the pan with the peas.

Combine: Add the pea pistou. Add about half the pasta water. Combine. Check the sauce consistency and add more pasta water to thin sauce as desired. Combine to coat the pasta evenly.
