This is one of the prettiest salads we know. It is quite simple, but it could easily be served at a fancy dinner party when it would be a good idea to sprout the rice instead of cooking it (which makes it even prettier and more nutritious). This salad combines earthy wild rice flavours with sweetness from the roasted Jerusalem artichokes and fresh grapes.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
10 jerusalem artichokes
2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 sprigs thyme
200g wild rice, rinsed
20 red grapes, halved and seeded, if necessary
150g red cabbage, shredded
handful watercress

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
60ml extra virgin olive oil
1 small organic orange, juiced and zested
2 sprigs thyme
salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Scrub the Jerusalem artichokes and cut them into 1 cm slices. Place them on a baking tray, drizzle immediately with olive oil, and sprinkle sea salt and fresh thyme. Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes or until soft in the middle and golden and slightly crispy on the outside.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the rice. Bring 750 ml water to the boil, add the wild rice and a teaspoon of salt. Reduce the heat and let it gently simmer, covered, for 40 minutes or just until the kernels puff open. Drain off any excess water.
  4. Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. Place artichokes and rice in a large bowl. Add the grapes, cabbage and dressing and toss lightly, using your hands, so all ingredients are coated. Garnish with sprigs of watercress and serve warm or cold.
