  • 1 Red Beetroot
  • 400 Grams of Kent Pumpkin
  • 80 Grams of Buckwheat
  • 1 Teaspoons of Cumin & Smoked Paprika
  • 0.33 Bunch of Silverbeet
  • 2 Garlic Clove
  • 0.25 Cups of Tahini
  • 40 Grams of Hazelnuts
  • 2 Teaspoons of Vege Stock Concentrate
  • 50 Grams of Greek Yoghurt

Cook Vegetables:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Wash the fresh produce. Peel pumpkin and beetroot. Cut beetroot into 1.5 cm pieces and pumpkin into 2cm pieces. Drizzle pumpkin and beetroot with a little olive oil to coat and season with salt and pepper. Spread on a lined baking tray (using 2 if necessary) and cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until tender. Remove from the oven.

Cook Buckwheat:

Meanwhile, place buckwheat in a sieve and rinse well under cold water. Place buckwheat and vege stock concentrate in a pot and cover with water by 1 cm. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low and simmer buckwheat for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain and rinse.

Prepare & Cook Silverbeet:

Wash the fresh produce. Trim silverbeet ends (and discard). Remove stems and thinly slice, roughly chopping the leaves, keeping separate. Peel and mince garlic. Heat a pan over medium heat with enough oil to cover base. Add silverbeet stems, garlic and ½ the spice mix then sauté for 3 minutes. Add in silverbeet leaves and continue cooking for another 5 minutes, until silverbeet has wilted and softened slightly. Season with salt and pepper.

Make Tahini Dressing:

Combine remaining spice mix with tahini in a small bowl. Roughly chop hazelnuts.

You Plate It:

Add drained buckwheat to silverbeet and combine. Divide silverbeet/buckwheat mix, pumpkin and beetroot between bowls. Drizzle with tahini dressing and a dollop of yoghurt. Garnish with hazelnuts and enjoy! (Optional: you can combine the yoghurt with the tahini if you wish - we prefer to keep it separate).
