1kg x baby cos lettuce leaves (approx. 12), washed and trimmed

300g French beans, topped, tailed and washed

PARMESAN CRISPS:

160g finely grated parmesan

300g silken tofu

  3. Blanch the French beans for 2 minutes in boiling water, refresh and drain.
  4. Place the GARDEN GOURMET Breaded Fillets on a lined backing tray with greaseproof paper and bake at 180°C from frozen for 12-15 minutes and then cut into strips at a 45-degree angle.
  5. To serve, divide the lettuce and spinach onto 10 bowls, add the breaded fillet strips, French beans, crumble over the parmesan crisps and drizzle each bowl with the dressing. Season with freshly ground cracked black pepper.
