Roasted Beetroot, Quinoa and Goats’ Curd Salad

I love this versatile, colourful winter salad – healthy, hearty and packed full of beautiful earthy sweet flavour. Quinoa is easy to cook with and provides a nutritious, textural gluten free option for your simple winter salads.

 

Serves 4 as a entrée

 

For the roasted vegetables

2 bunches baby red beetroot (approx. 12 pieces)
2 bunches baby yellow beetroot (approx. 12 pieces)
4 sprigs thyme
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt flakes – a good pinch

For the quinoa

½ cup Quinoa
2 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
pinch of salt flakes
¼ bunch flat leaf parsley – chopped

To serve

160g Goats’ curd
2 blood orange – peel & segment
1 punnet Petit Bouche red & green cos

For the roasted beetroots

Pre heat your oven to 190c.

Place the beetroots on a roasting tray with the remaining ingredients and roast for 30 minutes until tender. Leave to cool to room temperature, peel off the skins & keep the roasting juices.

Cut the beets into small pieces and toss in the juices.

For the quinoa

Place the quinoa & water in a saucepan and poach for 15 minutes until soft and juicy, finish with the olive oil, salt and chopped parsley.

To serve

Spoon a generous smudge of goats’ curd onto your serving plates, arrange the beetroots, quinoa, orange and decorate with the leaves. Spoon around the roasting juices & serve.
