Oranges add freshness to balance the richness of winter’s comfort food – in this instance roasted root vegetables – in this salad recipe.


  • 4 parsnips, halved lengthways
  • 3 beetroot, cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 radicchio (treviso variety works well)
  • 50g toasted hazelnuts
  • 75g soft goat’s curd or goat’s cheese


  1. Heat the oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan/gas 6. Toss the parsnips and beetroot with the olive oil in a roasting tray. Roast for 45-50 minutes until tender and caramelised.
  2. Meanwhile, slice one orange into segments, squeezing the juice from the pulp into a small bowl, then cut the remaining orange into rounds.
  3. Whisk the extra-virgin olive oil into the orange juice, then season with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss the radicchio leaves with the warm roasted veg, then arrange on a platter, scattered with the orange segments and rounds, hazelnuts and cheese. Drizzle with the dressing and serve.
