Ingredients

750 carrots

500g raw beetroot

Olive oil

2 oranges, zest & segments

1 tbsp sesame seeds

1/2 bunch of coriander, roughly chopped

Extra virgin olive oil

Preparation


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, and put a large pan of salted water on the hob to boil.

  2. Prepare the carrots - peel them, trim off the ends and halve.

  3. Prepare the beetroot - scrub clean and chop into wedges.

  4. Once the water is ready, add the carrots and boil for 5 minutes.

  5. Use a slotted spoon to move the carrots into a colander and leave the pan of water on the hob to boil again.

  6. Carefully add the beetroot and boil for 5 minutes, then drain.

  7. Put the carrot and beetroot in a large roasting tin. Drizzle with olive oil, season then combine well so the veg is covered.

  8. Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning occasionally until the veg looks sticky.

  9. In the meantime, prepare the oranges - grate the zest, remove the leftover skin, and then cut the orange into segments.

  10. Next, put a small pan on the hob over low heat, add the sesame seeds and toast for a couple of minutes, tossing occasionally, until golden.

  11. When the veg is ready, let it cool then put it in a large mixing bowl. Add the orange zest and segments with a little extra virgin olive oil, then toss well. Feel free to add extra seasoning if it’s needed.

  12. Serve with fresh coriander and scatter the toasted sesame seeds on top.
