Prep Notes

Preheat the oven to 200C.  Prepare all incredients as indicated

Cooking Time

30 minutes


Serves 2


2 tbsp sunflower seeds

20g flaked almonds

1 beetroot – dice (1.5cm)

1/2 butternut – dice (1.5cm)

2 carrots – trim ends, slice at an angle (1cm)

1/2 tbsp Baharat Spice mix

1 tin chickpeas – drain & rinse

2 tbsp tahini

1/2 lemon – cut in half & juice

1/2 cos lettuce – separate leaves

40g rocket


Sunflower seeds & flaked almonds: Place a pan on high heat and dry toast for 2-3 minutes until browned. Toss often to make sure they don’t burn.

Roast veggies: Place the beetroot, butternut and carrots on a tin foil lined baking tray with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with the Baharat Spice Mix then mix, arrange in a single layer (make sure not to overcrowd the tray, rather use two trays).  Roast for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked.  When done, remove from the oven, add to the chickpeas and mix.

Tahini: Place the tahini in a bowl and slowly mix in a little water, enough to turn the mixture into a pouring consistency.  The tahini will go thicker when you start adding the water but keep adding a little at a time.  Eventually it will become a runny consistency.  Season with salt and pepper and lemon juice to taste. Save

Serve the roast veg and chickpeas on the lettuce and rocket leaves topped with the toasted sunflower seeds and almonds.  Drizzle over the tahini.


No need to peel the beetroot, carrots or butternut as the goodness is also under and in the skin!  Make sure that you lightly scrub these veges with some diluted vinegar or a vege cleaner before dicing.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
