PERFECT FOR RECOVERY, this mix of carbs and protein bursts with flavour. Sun-dried tomatoes are a concentrated source of lycopene, an antioxidant that has been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers, while the oil adds healthy fat and helps to give the spread a smooth, rich consistency.
In a food processor, combine the tomatoes, half of the red peppers, two tablespoons of water, garlic, walnuts, mint, oregano, cayenne and salt to taste. Process until smooth, scraping down the bowl as necessary. If the spread is too thick, add more water, a teaspoon at a time.
Place a tablespoon of the tomato spread in each pitta half. Stuff each pitta with an equal amount of the chicken, rocket, avocado and remaining red pepper. NUTRITION PER SERVING Kcals 382, Carbs 43g, Protein 26g, Fat 13g
