Cooking Stages

    • Preheat the oven to 200C / gas mark 6. Peel and cut the carrots into fries.

    • Place the carrots in a bowl and sprinkle over half of the cajun spice and drizzle with 1/2 tbsp oil, mix well. Place on a baking sheet in the oven for 20 mins, turning halfway through cooking.

    • Slice the chicken into strips and place in a bowl with the remaining cajun spice and 1/2 tbsp oil and season with sea salt. Toss the chicken making sure it is well coated. Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and add the chicken, cook for 10 mins turning often, until cooked through.

    • Whilst the chicken is cooking, peel and grate the raw beetroot. Mix the tahini in with the beetroot and half of the lemon juice.

    • Peel and de-stone the avocado and scoop into a bowl. Roughly mash with a fork and mix with the remaining lemon juice and season with sea salt and black pepper.

    • To prepare the lettuce wrap, cut the base of each lettuce at the head, carefully peeling it away so it stays in one piece. Use 2-3 leaves per wrap.

    • To assemble the tacos, place equal quantities of the grated beetroot in the lettuce leaves and top with the avocado and chicken strips. Serve alongside the carrot fries.
