Ingredients you'll need
  • 250g beetroot
  • 3 plums
  • A handful of rosemary, leaves only
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 lettuce
  • 25g pumpkin seeds
From your kitchen
  • 1 tsp + 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Peel the beetroot and slice it into thin wedges. Lay them in a colander and place it over a pan half full of boiling water. Cover and steam for 20 mins, or till tender.

  • 2.

    While the beetroot cooks, halve the plums. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the stones. Strip the leaves from the rosemary and finely chop them.

  • 3.

    Set a frying pan over a high heat. Add 1 tsp oil. Add the plum halves (cut-side down), the rosemary and 2 tsp of the honey. Fry for 2 mins. Turn and fry for 1 min. Tip onto a plate. Don’t worry if the plums are soft and jammy.

  • 4.

    Pour 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar into a bowl. Whisk in 2 tbsp oil and some salt and pepper.

  • 5.

    Slice the base from your lettuce. Separate and rinse the leaves. Tumble into a large bowl. Mix with half the balsamic dressing.

  • 6.

    Arrange the dressed lettuce leaves on two plates. Top with the steamed beetroot. Add the plums. Scatter over the pumpkin seeds. Finish by drizzling over the remaining dressing.
