We are coming into salad season (YAY) and I am so excited to start upping my salad game! While we wait for summer to fully arrive, my absolute fave Spring salad mixes winter roast veg, with some fresh summer greens and salad veg coming into season.
Nothing beats this delicious combo of warm roasted vegetables with spinach, tomato, avocado and pumpkin seeds for some crunch. I almost always add a free range poached egg, it adds a great creaminess.
Roast the following at 180 degrees for 25-30 mins in olive oil or coconut oil, turning every 10 mins:Then
1 cup diced kumara
1 cup diced pumpkin
1 red onion
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, roasted in the last 10 mins
Then In a bowl combine;
1 cup spinach
Handful cherry tomatoes
Dressing of choice (I used a creamy avocado dressing)
1/2 an Avocado
Add your roast veges & pumpkin seeds to the salad and top with a poached egg if desired.
You can easily add a protein like chicken or beef to this too.
