    Sliced clementine, roast beetroot and rocket salad

    • Vegetarian
    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 35 minutes

    Serves: 4 as a side


    4-5 clementines, peeled
    250g pack cooked beetroot (not in vinegar)
    1 tbsp clear honey
    4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    ½ tsp coriander seeds
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar
    90g wild rocket


    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Slice the clementines horizontally into 1cm-thick discs. Squeeze enough of the more raggedy top and bottom discs over a bowl to collect about 3 tbsp juice.

    2. Slice the beetroot into wedges. Toss with the honey, 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp clementine juice from the bowl. Spread out on the lined tray and season. Roast for 20 minutes until glazed, turning with a spatula halfway through.

    3. Meanwhile, toast the coriander seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat for about 1 minute, until a shade darker and fragrant, then roughly crush in a pestle and mortar or with the base of a sturdy jar. Add to the clementine juice bowl with the remaining oil and vinegar; season. Toss through the rocket, roast beetroots and sliced clementines. Serve as a refreshing side salad.
