Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Wash beetroot and wrap in a large sheet of foil. Place on a baking tray. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Cut pumpkin into 2cm wedges, then cut each wedge into 2 or 3 pieces. Arrange on prepared tray and lightly spray with oil. Bake pumpkin for 50 minutes and beetroot for 1 hour 10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Add quinoa to a large saucepan of boiling water and cook for 12 minutes. Drain into a fine sieve, then transfer to a large bowl. Combine oil, rind, turmeric and half the juice in a small bowl, then add to quinoa and mix well.
  3. Tear kale into bite-sized pieces and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with remaining juice and massage in until soft. Set aside.
  4. Lightly spray a large, non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook tofu for 2 minutes each side or until golden brown. Cool slightly, and then slice. Toss all ingredients together in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with almonds to serve.
