Loaded Quinoa with Honeyed Beetroot & Carrots and Hazelnuts - The Deli

Loaded Quinoa with Honeyed Beetroot & Carrots and Hazelnuts


  • 400g beetroot rinsed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 20ml NOMU Italian Rub
  • 480g carrot rinsed, trimmed and cut into wedges
  • 20g hazel nuts roughly chopped
  • 60ml honey
  • 150ml white quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 60g danish feta
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • Half cucumber, rinsed and cut into half-moons
  • 40g green leaves


  • Preheat the oven to 200℃. Coat the veggies in olive oil, the NOMU rub and salt and pepper. Roast the veggies in the oven until crispy, 35 minutes (stirring halfway through)
  • In the final 5 minutes of roasting, scatter the chopped hazelnuts and drizzle with honey. Toss together and return to the oven for the remaining time.
  • Place the rinsed quinoa in a pot with 300ml salted water. Cover with a lid and bring to boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the quinoa tails have popped out, 12 - 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. Set aside to steam, about 5 minutes.
  • Plate the quinoa into a flat serving dish. Add the roasted veggies, feta, lemon juice, cucumber and green leaves and enjoy!
