Roast Beetroot and Sweet Potato Salad

5 Jan

Roast Beetroot and Sweet Potato Salad

This salad was inspired by something I frequently Order at Earthy Foodmarket Cafe, Edinburgh, and I must admit, it came really close and is, in my humble opinion, about the best product which emerged from my own kitchen in ages:

1. Parboil and dice an equal amount of beetroot and sweet potatoes, cover in just enough vegetable oil (not extra virgin!) to coat thinly and put under the grill until soft – about 60 min.
2. do the same with red onions (not many needed for this recipe!) – will take just under 30 min.
3. while still warm, mix the beetroot/sweet potatoes with red onions (not much needed), as many raisins as you like (not too many, not too few – I don`t like to give quantities…) and loads of fresh parsley.
4. add a generous amount of Dukkah (Egyptian spice mixture) and a more carefully chosen amount of Nigella seeds (I used about 3/4 tsp for a large tray)

Salad is better the next day, at room temperature, with any robust tasting dishes
