I love the combination of miso and tahini on top of these sweet roasted carrots, avocado and mixed seeds. Pretty as a picture, this salad goes well with meat or fish, and is superb as part of a grazing table.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
12 medium carrots, peeled
60ml olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
2 small handfuls rocket leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1 handful red sorrel leaves
2 avocados, halves and sliced
2 oranges, peeled and segmented

Miso tahini dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon white miso
135g Tahini dip
125ml orange juice
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons iced water

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (430°F).
  2. Cut the carrots in half lengthways, then into diagonal spears approximately 1 cm (½ in) wide. Place in a bowl and mix with the oil and salt.
  3. Transfer the carrots to a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 15 minutes, or until crisp and tender.
  4. To make the miso tahini dressing, whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and toast the sunflower seeds for 5 minutes, or until golden.
  6. When you’re ready to serve, smear 2 tablespoons of the dressing on a large serving dish.
  7. In a bowl, dress the rocket with 2 tablespoons olive oil and the lemon juice.
  8. Layer the salad in the serving dish with the roasted carrots, toasted sunflower seeds and poppy seeds, then the dressed rocket and red sorrel, reserving some sorrel leaves to garnish.
  9. Top with the sliced avocado, orange segments and more miso tahini dressing. Garnish with reserved red sorrel leaves.
