Roasted Carrots and Beet Salad with Dill, Feta & Arugula

This is a delicious salad that can be used as a side dish, a meal or even the base of a bowl. It's savoury, acidic and herbaceous with a touch of sweetness.

Note: Only the measurements for the sauce that goes on the roasted veggies are exact. The other ingredients are really just assembly so you can add more or less as you please.

I've had this as a side twice along side a piece of salmon once and then refried beans (random I know), but next time I'm thinking I'd like to make a bigger portion as a meal and add some chickpeas for protein!

I would also like to try adding this to a bed of quinoa and adding salmon or chickpeas to make it into a bowl. The possibilities are endless.

  • Chop beets in half, then chop each half into 4 quarters

  • Add maple syrup, olive oil and soy sauce to a bowl and mix

  • Either use a cooking brush to mix the sauce and paint it on the veggies once they're on the pan, or mix the veggies in the bowl of sauce and use your hands to cover the veggies in sauce

  • Add one handful of arugula to a plate

  • Drizzle olive oil on top

  • Squeeze one quarter lemon juice onto arugula

  • Top with salt and pepper

  • Add carrots and beets on top (about 1 cup) but add more or less to your liking
