70g beetroot, peeled, grated and run under cold water until the water runs clear
150g courgette, grated
100g frozen peas, defrosted

Small handful mint leaves, finely chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

2. Put the cauliflower florets on a baking tray, drizzle with rapeseed oil and a pinch of salt. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes until crisp and golden.

3. To make the falafel, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using the palm of your hands, roll into 12 balls approximately the size of golf balls. Put on a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. 

4. Cook the quinoa according to pack instructions, drain and rinse under cold water.

5. To make the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or whisk together by hand to combine.

6. To assemble the salads, fill each bowl with a few spoons of quinoa, a handful of spinach, a small bunch of julienned carrot and beetroot, a few cauliflower florets and top with the falafel. Serve with the chive dressing and enjoy!
