    2. Meanwhile, remove the stalks from the beetroot, finely chop (discarding any leaves) and set aside. Cut the beetroot into wedges and put in a second roasting tin with 1⁄2 tbsp olive oil; season. Roast for 35 minutes, until tender, adding the beetroot stalks and unpeeled garlic cloves for the final 15 minutes.

    3. In a small bowl, mix together the oat yogurt alternative, lemon zest and juice, plus 1⁄2 the dill fronds; season. When the carrots are almost tender, toss through the cannellini beans and dill stalks; cook for a further 5 minutes, until tender all the way through. Heat the quinoa according to pack instructions. When everything is cooked, carefully remove the unpeeled garlic from the tin, peel and mash into the yogurt mixture. Put the salad leaves in a large bowl with the quinoa and vegetables. Gently toss together, then divide between
    4 plates. To serve, drizzle over the yogurt dressing and scatter with the remaining dill fronds.
