Beetroot & sweet potato salad

As a weekday single Mum, it’s really important to me to be able to purchase food that can last at least 3-4 days so I don’t have to drag my boys to the shop after work / daycare / scho when we are all exhausted. 

This week my haul includes a quarter red cabbage (only a little needed in each dish), a whole cauliflower (so versatile), a bunch of parsley, mint & coriander (make the same dish with different herbs & it changes it big time), broccolini (great in salads or anything really), cheese (I currently have haloumi, goat’s cheese, grana Padano & persian feta in the fridge). 

I want a different taste every night so am going to work on a weekly meal planner that is easy to do 3-4 nights with entry of variety but not too many ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

Beetroot

Olives (always a staple in my fridge)

Lettuce 

Sweet potato (staple in our house – we usually have about 4 ready at any given time to roast or bake)

Cucumber, so fresh 

Parsley

Goat’s cheese OR Persian feta

Lemon

Chilli 

Sunflower seeds (optional – I like the texture & protein content)
