Beet-and-Apple Salad

4 large beets (2 1/2 pounds)
5 thyme sprigs
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup apple-cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1/3 cup salted pistachios, chopped
1 green apple, thinly sliced












  Preheat the oven to 375°. In a baking dish, lightly drizzle the beets and thyme with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and roast until the beets are tender, about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Let cool, then peel the beets and cut them into 3/4-inch dice.

In a large bowl, whisk the vinegar with the mustard. Whisk in the remaining 1/2 cup of oil until emulsified. Add the horseradish and season with salt and pepper; toss with the beets and pistachios. Transfer the beets to a platter, top with the apple and serve.

Ginger, Pear and Pistachio Balls Recipe

Makes 18 balls

Ingredients

• 1 cup pitted dates
• 1 cup dried pears
• 1/2 cup raw cashews
• 1/2 cup whole, raw pistachios, plus 1/2 cup coarsely chopped
• 1/2 cup gluten-free quick oats
• 1 Tbsp. cashew butter
• 2 tsp. ground ginger

 

 Directions

In a food processor, combine the dates, pears, cashews, whole pistachios, oats, cashew butter, ginger and 3 tablespoons of water and process on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes, until a thick, sticky mass forms. You may need to add another 2 to 3 tablespoons of water.

Spread the chopped pistachios on a large plate.

Using a tablespoon, scoop the mixture and, with clean wet hands, roll into a ball between your palms. Roll the ball in the chopped pistachios to lightly coat and then set on a separate plate. Repeat with the remaining mixture until you have 18 balls.

Place the balls in the freezer to set for 30 minutes. Store in the refrigerator, or at room temperature, until required.

Peaches with Greek Yogurt, Honey and Pistachios Recipe

Serves 6

Ingredients

• 3 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
• 2 Tbsp. butter
• 7 ounces Greek yogurt
• 1/2 tsp. vanilla
• 1 tsp. honey, plus extra for drizzling
• Chopped pistachios for topping

 

 Directions

Heat a griddle pan on medium heat and add butter. Add the peaches face-down and leave to cook for 10 to 15 minutes until nicely browned. If you don't have a griddle pan, you can top each peach with a little butter and broil.

Whip the yogurt with vanilla and 1 teaspoon of honey, and then add a large spoonful onto each peach. Top with chopped pistachios and serve warm.
