Orange sweet potatoes are one of the best sources of beta-carotene. This important nutrient is converted into vitamin A in the body, which is used to maintain healthy eyes and good vision. Beets are considered a heart-healthy vegetable. Beets are high in nitrates, which have been found to help reduce blood pressure and improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and arteries.



Prep time

Cook time



  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced
  • 2 medium beetroot, peeled & cut into wedges
  • Olive oil
  • 2 handfuls finely chopped kale, ribs removed
  • Juice small lemon
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp chilli flakes
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ¼ red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small pomegranate
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ medium cauliflower, cut into florets
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp red chilli flakes
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup hulled tahini
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • Handful fresh herbs
  • ¼ cup water
  • Pinch sea salt & pepper


  • Preheat oven to 220°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  • Place sweet potato pieces on 1 tray and beetroot on the other. Spray with olive oil and season with sea salt.
  • Place in the oven for 30-40 mins or until they’re cooked through and golden.
  • Place kale in a medium bowl and drizzle with lemon juice and sea salt. Give it a massage for a min to soften it up.
  • To make your cauliflower rice, place 1/3 of the cauliflower pieces in your food processor and pulse until you have a rice consistency. Don’t over pulse. You should do this in 3 batches.
  • Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add cauliflower rice, turmeric, ginger, chilli and sea salt. Cook for 4-5 mins so cauliflower is cooked through but not mushy. Set aside to cool.
  • Use the same frying pan and add chickpeas, cumin, paprika and chilli. Cook for 5-6 mins until golden. Set aside to cool.
  • To make the dressing, mix all ingredients together in a jar. Arrange kale in 2 bowls, top with cauliflower rice, cabbage, sweet potato, beetroot, chickpeas and top with pomegranate seeds and dressing.
