1 head Cauliflower
4 Kale & Quinoa Burgers
8 Dried apricots diced or 40g of dried fruit
12 Cherry tomatoes washed and diced
100g baby spinach washed & roughly chopped
100g flaked almonds (toasted)
Juice ½ an orange
4 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. maple
1 tsp. miso paste
method (tick as you go)
Preheat oven 200°C.
Place the Kale & Quinoa burgers flat onto a baking tray and bake per pack instructions. Bake until they are golden around the edges or throw them on a BBQ for an extra crispy burger.
For toasting the almonds, place them on a small baking tray and place in the oven for 10 minutes until golden. Leave cool for 5 minutes.
Whilst baking place the cauliflower into a food processor and blend into a “couscous” like consistency, this should take 20 seconds.
Tip the cauliflower into a large serving dish, toss in the spinach, apricots, tomatoes and dressing and combine.
Once the burgers are cooked let them cool for a few minutes before dicing into bite-size pieces.
Top the salad with the toasted almonds and tear up the Kale & Quinoa Burgers.
