  • Over 30+ mins
  • Why We Love It

    This is such a tasty dish for veggies. The goat’s cheese and cranberry make this so special. Serve for 6 as a side, or serve for 4 as a main.

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 220 degrees celsius and line baking tray with baking paper. Wash root vegetables and then cut into long strips. Combine 1 tbsp olive oil, minced garlic and fresh chopped herbs and pour evenly onto root vegetables. Roast for 40 mins.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, rinse raw quinoa thoroughly under water to remove the bitter taste. Place in a small pot, and cover with 2 cups water and a pinch of salt. Simmer on low heat until the water has been absorbed completely by the quinoa. Set aside to cool.

  • Step 3

    Finely slice red onion. Heat pumpkin seeds in a fry pan until lightly golden. Combine quinoa, pumpkin seeds, cranberries and red onion to make your salad.

  • Step 4

    Finally, create your dressing by mixing 1 tbs olive oil with the juice of half a lemon and the seeded mustard. Drizzle over salad. Roughly top the goat’s cheese and add, along with the pepitas. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
