Roasted Beet and Fennel Salad

Roasted Beet and Fennel Salad

Posted 2015-02-05 by Annalisa Brownfollow
A twist on the classic Rocket and Beetroot Salad ; this Roasted Beet and Fennel combination optimally showcases the beet’s sweet, smoky and nutty flavours.

In keeping with the clean eating principles of my 60-Day Challenge, I have included a small amount of Goats Milk Fetta Cheese, which gives the dish a tangier and fuller taste as it cuts through some of the caramelised aniseed tones of the fennel.

The flavours are subtle and pair perfectly with one another. It's a great tasting and refreshing vegetable salad that can be enjoyed anytime of the year and on any occasion.

Preparation Time: 5-mins
Cooking Time: 45-mins
Makes: 4-6 as an entree

Ingredients
2 Small Fennel
4 Small Beets
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Black Pepper
Goat’s Milk Fetta Cheese
Walnuts
Mint

Method
  • Wash the fennel and beetroot and trim the stalks off the vegetables. Cut each fennel into half.

  • Place the vegetables into a baking tray. Grind a liberal amount of black pepper over the vegetables then drizzle a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil over the fennel and beetroot.

  • Roasting is a healthy way of cooking the vegetables. It also adds a smoky bite to the salad.


  • In a pre-heated 180 degree oven, roast the vegetables for approximately 45-50 minutes. Turn the vegetables over every 20 minutes.

  • Once cooked, remove the vegetables from the oven and allow to cool.

  • Peel the skin off the beetroot and cut into large chunks.

  • Separate the fennel into pieces.

  • On a serving plate, layer the fennel pieces, followed by the beetroot chunks, fetta cheese, walnuts and mint.

  • Refrigerate until required.

  • The flavours of the beet and feel pair perfectly with one another.
