Lentil, Bean and Beetroot Salad

My friend gave me this recipe and in her words ‘This delicious salad is such a cheat but also very easy.’ Her recipe uses pomegranate seeds instead of beetroot but both work equally well.


Half a bag of curly kale

@merchantgourmet tomatoey french lentils

@waitroseandpartners wheat berries, lentils and green vegetables

Three whole cooked beetroot, chopped roughly



1) Put the kale in the food processor and chop.

2) In a bowl mix the kale, @waitroseandpartners wheatberry mix, @merchantgourmet lentils and and the beetroot.

3) Heat it for a 1 minute in the microwave (or put in a pan and warm on the hob for a few minutes) and then serve with crumbled feta.

Trout, Beetroot and New Potato Salad

This was just for the adults tonight as the kids are not so keen on fish!

I just used a bag of baby leaves and added baby new potatoes which I’d boiled this morning and cut in half. Sliced beetroot and spring onion. I cooked trout fillets for 15mins at 200oC and flaked them over the salad. Then I finished it off with a dressing I made with 3 tbsp creme fraiche and 4 tbsp horseradish.
