How it's done

Caramelized chicory

Boil the sugar and water in a wide-bottomed pan without stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, shaking the pan occasionally until a light brown caramel has formed. Add the vinegar, bring to the boil, season. Add the butter, melt in the pan on a low heat, shaking the pan occasionally. Add the chicory, fry for approx. 2 mins. on each side.

Lemon relish

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the cane sugar, turmeric and chilli flakes, toast for approx. 1 min. Add the lemon and salt, stir fry for approx. 2 mins., allow to cool a little.


Brown the kaniwa in a hot pan for approx. 2 mins., stirring constantly, add the water and salt. Cover and simmer over a low heat for approx. 15 mins., drain well. Add the pistachios and masala, mix. Put the kaniwa into a cutter (approx. 8 cm in diameter), press down lightly. Serve with the chicory and lemon relish.

Good to know
Note: Like quinoa, kaniwa belongs to the amaranth family, and it is often referred to as baby quinoa owing to its very tiny grains.
