Beetroot and Orange salad with Walnut and truffle 'cheeze'.

My boyfriend has gone to America without me. :( :(
That means he has taken his camera with him so I am left with my old thing. Its pretty hard to make the snaps look as good as they do with his camera but I will keep trying.

I found this AMAZING cheese at Leo's today. Its made of walnuts and truffle oil and it has a really nice creamy texture and that amazing truffley flavour. Its really expensive at about $11 for a jar but I thought it would go amazingly with this salad and it did.

Beetroot, orange and walnut cheese salad


5 medium beetroot
3 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 Can of lentils
2 handfulls rocket
2 Oranges segmented
Walnut cheese to taste


Juice of 1/2 orange
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Good pinch of sea salt
1 splash of balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon soy sauce


Peel and chop beetroot and place in oven tray and dress with oil and balsamic vinegar.
Cook on high for about an hour or until soft with a bit of bite.
Allow to cool when cooked and add lentils, rocket and orange. Dress and blob with cheese.

How beautiful are these trays? I got them for my birthday on sunday.



  1. This looks amazing! I love beets, but I often get stuck in ruts and eat them the same way every time. I'll have to try this!!

    1. It was really good. The cheese was Perfect on top so if you can find something similar DO IT!

  2. Love it, wanted to make a roast beetroot salad today and just found your recipe (although being in a hostel makes things harder %) And a little inside info, there is a shop not far from leos (103 high st in fact) where you can botanical cuisine for maybe 8 bucks a jar.*

    *disclaimer, this is my old work, but I guarantee you'll fall in love with the place Annie if you venture out there ;) Ps happy bday for Sunday!
