  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • Large handful of baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons wheat-free fish sauce or tamari
  • 3 teaspoons coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  • Healthy Guacamole (see page 217 of The Healthy Hormone Diet) or Simple Spicy Slaw (see page 166)
  • to serve coriander sprigs and lime wedges, to garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease eight holes of a muffin tin with coconut oil.
  2. Place the chicken, garlic, spinach, fish sauce or tamari, coconut cream and ginger in a food processor and pulse until well combined but not entirely smooth. A little texture is good.
