Organic recipes from Tefal

As National Organic Month draws to a close there's been a lot of talk about the benefits of organic produce.
In an effort to prove that organic cooking need not be complicated or expensive Tefal has developed a couple of super simple recipes using all organic ingredients



Chicken, Chickpea and Vegetable Soup

2 organic skinless chicken fillets
2 brown onions
1.5ltr low salt chicken stock
3 cloves of garlic peeled
Pepper, thyme & bay leaf
1 tsp ground cumin
200g chickpeas, tinned
200g carrots, washed
200g courgette, washed
Chopped fresh herbs of your choice

1. Slice the onions
2. Put the onions, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, chicken stock, cumin and chicken fillets in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook for about 20 minutes over low heat
3. Remove the chicken fillets and cut into pieces
4. Grate the carrots and courgette
5. Add the carrots, courgette and chickpeas to the broth along with the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes over low heat. Season with pepper and serve hot with herbs of your choice
