INGREDIENTS:

2 cups of carrots, chopped into discs 1/2 cm thick

2 tsp honey

2 tbsp macadamia oil

1/2 cauliflower

1/2 cup raw almonds, chopped coarsely

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1 spring onion, chopped finely

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Pinch of salt

LET’S DO THIS!

Toss the carrots in 1 tbsp macadamia oil and 2 tsp honey.

Spread out on a sheet of baking paper and bake at 180°C for 20-25 mins or until soft.

Remove the stems from as much of the cauliflower as possible, and whizz in a food processor until it resembles couscous.

Add the roast carrots, almonds, parsley, spring onion, lemon juice, salt and the remainder of the macadamia oil and toss thoroughly.

Serves 4 as a side salad.

Note: If you can’t find macadamia oil, olive oil works fine as a substitute.
