runners’ food: chicken with cauliflower

tastes better than it looks thank god.

Runner’s food should always be nutritious or delicious, or hopefully both.  Tonight I made the best of the autumnal veg with this tasty low-calorie meal which will surely satisfy even the biggest of appetites.




Ingredients (for 1)

Chicken breast

curry powder

red cabbage sliced

half a small cauliflower

75 ml skimmed milk

half a stock cube (veg or chicken).


Break the cauliflower into small florets and put in a pan with the milk and the stock cube. Put the lid on and heat on medium heat so the milk simmers but doesn’t boil.

Slice the chicken breast into strips then add curry powder (2 tbsp) to coat all over.

When the cauliflower is nearly tender, put a frying pan on a medium heat with some veg oil.  When hot, wipe the oil around and away with kitchen roll, then add the chicken.

after 5 minutes, add the red cabbage and keep stirring.

Blend the cauliflower into a puree with a hand blender.

Serve the chicken and cabbage on top of the puree.


This meal is low carb, so it won’t fuel you up for marathon training, but it is nice and filling, so it’s a great option if you want to watch your weight without going hungry.
