RECIPE: POLLY @MISS_POLLYS_KITCHEN
Directions

Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake. 

Place the diced kumara onto a lined baking tray, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle over the garlic, pepper, and sesame seeds. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through. 

Scatter the cooked quinoa onto a second-lined baking tray, place into the oven, and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until crispy. Set aside to cool. 

Heat a pan over a medium/high heat. Add a good splash of oil. Fry the broccoli florets on all sides until crispy and cooked through. Set aside. 

Whisk the dressing ingredients together. Set aside. 

Fetch a platter, place the cooked quinoa onto the platter, then the broccoli, kumara, spinach, edamame beans, mint and coriander. Top with the pickled onions and ginger and drizzle over the dressing.
