70g whole unpeeled hazelnuts

200g chantenay carrots

2 tablespoons maple syrup or runny honey

1 tablespoon avocado oil

200g sprouting seed mix

6 springs of fresh flat-leaf parsley


1 small orange

1 tablespoon avocado oil

2 teaspoons maple syrup or runny honey

Sprouting Super Salad Method

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/gas 4.

Toast the nuts in a shallow baking tin in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes – you need them to go just a little darker to bring out the lovely toasted flavour. Allow the nuts to cool and leave the oven on. Top the carrots, leaving small ones whole and slicing bigger ones in half lengthways. Parboil for 4 minutes, then drain.

Transfer the carrots to a roasting tin and drizzle with the maple syrup or honey and avocado oil. Roast in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Shake the tin to make sure the juices coat the carrots, then let cool slightly (they're better served when they're still warm).

Rinse the sprouting seeds, finely chop most of the parsley leaves, then mix with the hazelnuts and slightly cooled carrots in a serving bowl.

For the dressing, combine most of the orange zest with the orange juice, avocado oil, maple syrup or honey and 2 teaspoons of cracked black pepper.

Pour over the salad and toss to coat. Chop and sprinkle over the remaining parsley and top with the orange zest for extra prettiness.
