Hello people! My book signing went well yesterday at Waitrose Canary Wharf and the food was gone so quickly! People love it and I’m very pleased. I will put up some photos soon. So, please stay tuned. 😉
As I have been busy, I didn’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I have made some quick and simple dishes for the past few days and one of them was beetroot and orange salad. I can’t have enough of beetroot. Last time, I used beetroot in my soup – Borscht. Beetroot is such a versatile vegetable that you can use in in just any way you like. Eating it raw is great – rich in Vitamins and antioxidant.
Orange is a great pairing to beetroot because it gives a bit of acidity and sweetness to the whole dish and make it really light and refreshing. The dressing that I made is pretty simple but I decided to use a bit of spices in it to give a bit exotic feel to it. And how can I not put some sesame seeds too? It gives a slight crunch and nutty flavour! I have also added some toasted pecan nuts.
This salad is something that you don’t have to cook anything and can prepare within minutes! Quick vegetarian lunch or dinner! Of course, you could tweak by adding more or other ingredients.
