METHOD

Prepare the ingredients in advance and pre-cook the grains and pulses.

Steam the chicken to over 75C and slice.
Gently reheat the grains and beans with the remaining 100ml miso stock in a pot, add the sliced peppers and carrots and heat till warm.
Spoon over the sauce, or place in a pot and garnish with the sliced chilli and picked coriander.
