    What to do

  • 1. To make the dressing, blitz the cashews in a food processor with the miso, lemon juice, salt and 120 ml of warm water to loosen it all up. The dressing should be creamy but pourable, and not a thick paste. Add a little more warm water if needed.

  • 2. Toss the cooked brown rice with two-thirds of the celery, spring onion, corn and almonds and set the rest aside for later. (And it’s OK, that can be roughly two-thirds as I don’t want you wasting your time counting out sweetcorn kernels to divide by 66.66% recurring.) Mound into a wide shallow bowl or platter.

  • 3. Toss the shredded chicken in the miso dressing and scatter on top of the rice. Sprinkle on the reserved celery, spring onion, corn and almonds and serve.
