Exeggutor Salad with Exeggcute Cups

Exeggutor is a tall, bipedal Pokémon that resembles a palm tree. There light yellow paw pad on each foot’s underside. Exeggutor has three to six round, light yellow heads that resemble coconuts, each with differing facial expressions.

Due to the abundance of sunlight in the Alola region, Exeggutor grows over five times taller than in other regions. Its neck is thinner and much longer, causing it to more resemble a palm tree.

Exeggcute is a Pokémon resembling six light pink eggs, usually seen arranged with five heads huddled around a sixth. The heads communicate with each other by using a form of telepathy that only they can understand.

Ingredients

1 tsp Oregano
Olive Oil
2 Chicken Breasts
150g Quinoa
50g Kale
4 Pineapple Slices
50g Natural Yoghurt

For the Bacon and Egg Cups:
4 Eggs
4 slices Streaky Bacon
1 tbsp Chives (chopped)

For Exeggcute and Exeggutor I thought I’d bundle the two together. I made an Egg dish for Exeggcute that uses broken eggs in Bacon cups that tried to represent how Exeggcute look. The bacon was added to match the colour of the Pokemon, and the eggs to match their physical shape.

For Exeggutor, I made a chicken and pineapple dish. I know that the Pokemon is meant to look like a Coconut tree however as someone who is not fond of coconuts, I instead made the dish have a similar shape to a pineapple. The appearance of the dish is supposed to look like a Kanto Exeggutor with the Chicken and Quinoa matching its body, The Kale matching the leaves and the Pineapple matching the heads.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 180ºC. In a muffin tray oil up 4 cups and line with bacon. Break the eggs into the cups, top with chopped chives and bake for 15 minutes.
Step 2
Combine the oregano with a tablespoon of oil and add some salt and pepper. Slice the chicken breasts then coat the chicken in the oil mixture.
Step 3
Cook the quinoa according to packet instructions then set aside. Separately steam the kale. In a skillet, fry the chicken and pineapple until the chicken is cooked and the pineapple is charred.
Step 4
Serve with quinoa with the chicken on top, the kale with the pineapple on top, the bacon and egg cups, and a dollop of yogurt with some extra chives.
