1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and prepare an oven tray with baking paper. Roughly cut kale in strips, place in a bowel and drizzle with olive oil, lemon and sprinkle of salt – massage kale and leave aside for 10 minutes occasionally massaging. Roughly dice cucumber, cherry tomatoes, Spanish onion and parsley and add to massaged kale.

2. Cut up sweet potato roughly in chunks, place on tray prepared earlier and toss around with olive oil and some salt and pepper – add any fresh rosemary or thyme. Put chicken in a bowl with cut up garlic, spices, olive oil, maple – make sure chicken is covered in marinade mix and set aside for 5 minutes. Occasionally stir around mixture. Bake with sweet potato or can pan fry separately.

3. Rinse and drain buckwheat thoroughly with water, and measure 1 cup buckwheat to 2 cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes with lid on, stirring occasionally. Buckwheat should appear fluffy, and the water should be fully absorbed when ready – remove from heat.

4. Once all elements have been prepared toss salad mix, sweet potato and buckwheat through in a bowl, top with chicken, avocado and almonds. Finish with tahini style dressing.
