Delight in the marvellous mixture of taste, colour and texture present on this plate. Juicy pork chops are seasoned with a bright citrus- and herb-infused mixture and grilled to perfection. We send you butternut squash that has been ‘riced’ into fine grain-like form; cook it up with a pinch of garlic to make a beautiful bed for tonight’s dish. Our gremolata takes form thanks to toasted pecans, parsley, a splash of vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil; spoon it onto the pork chops for a crunchy, nutty bite that’s full of essential proteins and fats. A side of sautéed French beans finishes a meal that is as quick to make as it is to love.

    Toast the pecans
    Heat a large dry pan on medium-high. Add the pecans and toast, 1 to 2 minutes, until the nuts are fragrant. Transfer the toasted nuts to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop.

    Cook the pork
    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the pork chops* to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan.

    Cook the beans
    In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until beginning to soften. Add the French beans, ½ the vinegar and 1 tbsp of water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, until the water has evaporated; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly combined.
