Today’s healthy recipe of roasted carrots and goat’s cheese salad is brought to us by topotishka

I’d like to share a recipe of this delicious, healthy, and easy to cook salad.  I’m sure your whole family will love it.  Despite its simplicity the salad is packed with flavours.  I love how well the sweetness of carrots goes with the acidity of pomegranate and the creaminess of goat’s cheese.  It’s also surprisingly filling thanks to the chickpeas which are a great source of protein. Finally, look at these irresistible colours on the plate!  Bon appetit!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 carrots
  • 70 g goat’s cheese
  • 200 g can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • wild rocket leaves
  • 75g pomegranate seeds
  • grated zest and juice of half an orange
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Heat oven to 190C. Wash and cut the carrots. Spread them onto a large baking sheet and toss with 1 tbsp of the oil. Sprinkle with the orange zest and juice and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 40-50 mins until tender and  some colour catches on the edges.

2. Stir the chickpeas into the roasted carrots add add the washed wild rocket, then tip onto a large serving plate. Drizzle with the remaining oil and a little of the orange juice. Crumble over the goat’s cheese and sprinkle on the pomegranate seeds.
