Apple, Beetroot & Quinoa Salad Recipe

Serves 6


1 lemon, juice only

3 Granny Smith apples,  sliced into thin sticks

100g red quinoa

2 shallots, peeled, finely diced

1 cup mint leaves, finely shredded

2 large red beetroot, peeled, sliced into thin sticks

150g Brussels sprouts, leaves separated

½ cup onion sprouts (optional)

Horseradish Dressing

1 tsp vegan horseradish paste

¼ cup cider vinegar

60ml almond oil

2 tsp golden caster sugar

1 tsp snipped chives



Drizzle lemon juice over apples and set aside.

Wash quinoa grains until water runs clear. Place in a saucepan and cover with water; simmer for 10 minutes until grains are translucent. Drain in a fine sieve and refresh under cold water. Press out any excess water. Set aside.

To make the Horseradish dressing, mix all ingredients in a small jar. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir until well combined.

Combine shallots, mint, beetroot and Brussels sprout leaves with the quinoa. Mix in some of the dressing, then arrange on a serving platter.

Sprinkle with onion sprouts, if using, and serve with remaining dressing.
