Pumpkin-beetroot-feta-salad-pumpkin-feta-fresh-beetroot

Root veggies are AMAZING in salads! You can substitute the butternut with orange sweet potato which works very well! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this salad! Too good!

4 beetroots, peeled

½ a butternut or 3 orange sweet potatoes (or both if you like!)

3 – 4 sprigs of fresh thyme

Olive oil

Sea salt & freshly ground pepper

1 Packet Baby Spinach leaves

Feta cheese, crumbled

2 – 3 tbsp pumpkin seed

Balsamic reduction to drizzle

– Preheat oven to 200° C

– Rub some olive oil, salt and pepper and a little balsamic reduction all over the beets then wrap them individually in aluminium foil and cook in the oven until soft. Allow to cool, then chop into chunks.

– Peel and cut the butternut (and or sweet potato)into bite-size pieces. Mix with olive oil, salt and pepper and thyme and cook in the oven until tender.

– To serve, place the baby spinach on a platter and scatter the butternut on top. Place the beetroot on top of the butternut and scatter the feta cheese and pumpkin seeds over the salad.

– Drizzle with balsamic reduction just before serving.
