Instructions
 

Salad

  • Preheat oven 180°C fan forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Place the carrots, beetroot and onions on prepared tray, brush with macadamia oil.
  • Roast for 35-40 minutes or until vegetables are golden and tender.

Macadamia and coriander dressing

  • Meanwhile, to make the dressing, combine all ingredients except the oil in a food processor until puréed. Add oil slowly until the mixture is the consistency of a thick sauce. Adjust the flavour with salt.
  • Steam the kale until just wilted and place into a large bowl. Add the roasted vegetables, lentils and macadamias and toss well with the dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve.

Notes

TIP:
1 small hot chilli, seeds removed, can be added to the dressing in the food processor with the coriander.
