Marinated Carrot Salad Recipe

Ingredients

450 g carrots, peeled and shredded
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup grapeseed oilSalt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup fresh carrot juice
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil 3/4 teaspoon fresh ginger juice, squeezed from 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger

Instructions

Place the halved tomatoes in an ovenproof dish. Throw over the garlic and drizzle over half the olive oil.

Roast for 25-30 minutes in a fairly hot oven (190C/375F/Gas 5) until soft and pulpy. Rub through a sieve to remove the skin and pips.

Heat the remaining oil in a pan and sweat the onion for a few minutes until soft. Add the beetroot and the stock and bring to the boil. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer gently for 7-10 minutes until the beetroot is tender.

Stir in the tomato purée, transfer the soup to a blender and process until completely smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary

To serve cold, chill the soup in the fridge, then divide between six bowls. Using your fingers, crumble a little feta into each bowl. A sprinkling of grated raw beetroot makes a good garnish for the cold version

To serve hot, reheat the soup until thoroughly hot but not boiling. Divide between warm bowls and crumble over a little feta into each bowl. Serve with crusty bread.

  • I've learned that fear limits you and your vision. It serves as blinders to what may be just a few steps down the road for you. The journey is valuable, but believing in your talents, your abilities, and your self-worth can empower you to walk down an even brighter path. Transforming fear into freedom - how great is that?
