Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4 persons
Ingredients
  • 3 – 5 large beetroots (peeled)
  • 2 large oranges
  • For the dressing
  • 2 tablespoons cashew butter
  • 50ml water
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • Handful fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Method
  1. Preheat your oven to Gas 5 / 190 C
  2. Chop the peeled beetroot into 1cm cubes.
  3. Place on a baking tray with a drizzle of oil and roast for 35-45 mins, until soft. (they won’t go super soft, but retain a little bite which is what we want here)
  4. Peel the oranges (I use a shard knife to do this as it helps remove extra pith). Chop the orange into cubes and then into a large mixing bowl.
  5. Once the beetroot is done, add it into the bowl with the oranges. Give it a good mix.
  6. To make the dressing – add all ingredients into a jug, use a stick blender to blend it up. Add a little more water if it’s too thick.
  7. Serve on a plate and drizzle with dressing.
