Prep Time: 60 minutes Cook Time: 60 minutes Servings: 4 people


 Beetroot & Ricotta Mix 

  • 2–3 medium Beetroot (Red)
  • 1 clove Garlic: crushed
  • 2 sprigs of fresh Thyme
  • 25ml Olive Oil
  • 250g Ricotta
  • Sea Salt & freshly Cracked Black Pepper

  • 25ml Olive Oil
  • 2 bunches of Asparagus: trimmed & each spear cut in half
  • 250g fresh Broad Beans: podded

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Wrap the beetroot, garlic & thyme in a foil parcel tightly & roast in the oven for 1 hour.

  3. For the salad, sprinkle the olive oil over the asparagus, season with salt & pepper & roast until just cooked.
  4. Blanch the broad beans in a pan of boiling water for 1 minute, then drain & immediately pop the beans out of their outer skins.
  5. Toss the asparagus, broad beans, salad leaves & vinaigrette together in a bowl, then lightly season to taste.
  6. To serve, spoon the roasted ruby beetroot ricotta onto serving plates & make a well in the centre of each portion, then pile the salad into the wells, dividing it evenly between the plates.
  7. Serve with crusty bread.
