For the vegetables
|1 Tbsp||Coconut oil|
|1 pinch||Flaky sea salt|
|1 handful||Salad greens, such as rocket or baby spinach|
|1 small bunch||Mixed soft herbs, such as flat-leaf parsley, basil, mint; roughly chopped|
|2 Tbsp||Chopped nuts, eg. almonds, walnuts|
For the dressing
- Preheat oven to 200C and cut the kumara into chunks. Lay on a roasting tray and dot the coconut oil over the kumara. Season with sea salt and roast for about 30-40 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut the broccoli into florets, and cut the stem into chunks, and steam or gently pan-fry until just cooked. For the dressing, in a small bowl whisk together the yoghurt, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Taste and adjust as necessary. When the kumara is golden, remove from oven and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.
- To assemble, place the kumara, broccoli, salad greens, herbs and nuts into a bowl and gently combine. Add the dressing and gently combine again, or serve the dressing as a dollop on top. Serve with protein of your choice (a piece of fish or steak works well) or enjoy as is, with enough leftovers for lunch.
