Gather
  1. 1/2 cup (100g) black lentils, soaked overnight
  2. 3 large beetroots, washed and trimmed
  3. 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
  4. 1/4 cup (60ml) apple cider vinegar
  5. 2 tsp raw honey or pure maple syrup
  6. Finely grated zest of 2 oranges
  7. 1 cup rocket, washed
  8. 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  9. 1/4 cup (40g) hazelnuts, toasted
  10. 150 grams goats cheese
Make
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Rinse and drain lentils, then place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10-20 minutes until tender. When the lentils are almost cooked, add 1 teaspoon salt and continue to simmer until tender. Drain and rinse under cold water, then place in a large bowl.
  2. Wrap beetroot in foil and place on a baking tray. Roast for 40 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the oven and set aside in their foil for 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, unwrap and slip off the skins. Chop beetroots into bite-size pieces and add to the lentils.
  3. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, honey and a pinch of salt in a small bowl, then pour over the salad. Add orange zest, salad leaves, parsley and walnuts, and season to serve.

Gather
  1. 1 cup quinoa
  2. 1/2 cup roasted almonds, plus more to garnish
  3. 1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley
  4. 1/2 bunch fresh mint
  5. 1/2 bunch coriander
  6. 50g rocket
  7. A small fennel bulb
  8. 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  9. Handful of radishes, thinly sliced
  10. 1/2 cucumber
  11. Juice of 1 lemon
  12. 4-5 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
  13. 1 cup of cherries, pitted
  14. 1/2 cup crumbled goats cheese, plus more to garnish
Make
  1. Rinse the quinoa in a sieve until the water runs clear. Bring two cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Add 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt as well as the rinsed and drained quinoa. Bring back to boil, reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the quinoa is tender. Remove from the heat, leave for 10 minutes, and then fluff up using a fork. Set aside to cool.
  2. Roughly chop the parsley, mint, coriander and rocket and add to a large bowl. Trim the fennel, cut into quarters and slice the tough core from each quarter before finley slicing. You can use a mandolin for this step if you have one handy. Add to the bowl along with the finely sliced spring onions and radishes. Trim the ends off the cucumber and finely slice into thin rounds before adding to the bowl. Add the pitted cherries to the bowl, along with any juice that may have oozed out when you pitted them.
  3. Add the cooled quinoa along with the almonds and crumbled goats cheese. Stir through the lemon juice, olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Let the salad rest for at half an hour then serve, sprinkled with left over almonds and goats cheese.
