2 medium sized Red beets

2 medium sized Candy Beets
1 pack of Rocket Salad – washed
20 ml Balsamic Vinegar
60 ml Olive Oil
100g Haloumi Cheese – block
40g Toasted pine nuts
Wrap each beet in foil. Place the beets directly onto the oven rack and roast on 180 degrees celsius until tender for about 50 minutes. You can use toothpick to check if they are soft enought. Remove the foil from the beets and set aside until cool enough to handle. Cut each beet into 8 to 10 wedges.
To make the dressing – combine balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a blender or with whisk – season with salt and pepper. To make quinoa please follow instructions on the pack (Usually quinoa boiled in water for 10 – 12 minutes)
Just before serving, slice your Haloumi into twelve even slices, heat the griddle pan and lightly fry the cheese. Meanwhile in a bowl dress your rocket with dressing. Combine with beetroots (keep few pieces for garnish) and your portion of quinoa. Place the mix to your serving plate. Top with 3 slices of grilled Haloumi and toasted pine nuts. Garnish with rest of the beetroot.
