  • 100g Brioche bread or Sourdough – utilise leftovers from our French toast recipe
  • 3 whole Garlic cloves, skin on & squashed
  • 1 tbsp fresh Rosemary, chopped
  • 1 Carrot
  • 150g Beetroot
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 150g Kale, leaves picked from the stalk and washed
  • Olive oil

Citrus Garlic Yoghurt Dressing

  • 300g Yeo Valley Organic Natural Yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon, juiced
  • Roasted garlic, squeezed into the dressing
  • 1 tsp Thyme, chopped
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Peel the parsnip and the sweet potato and dice them up.
  3. Peel the red onion and slice.
  4. Add the vegetables to a flat baking tray with the squashed garlic cloves and chopped rosemary. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for 15 minutes.
  5. Slice the bread into chunks and drizzle with olive oil. Roast for a further 5 minutes until toasted and golden brown.
  6. To make the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Squeeze out the roasted garlic clove into the dressing and season it with salt and pepper. Whisk until the dressing is smooth.
  7. Add the kale to a mixing bowl and dress with the yogurt dressing. Using your hands, massage the dressing into the leaves so they absorb the dressing.
  8. Add the roasted vegetables and bread to the mixing bowl with the dressed kale and combine the ingredients.
  9. Feeling extra fancy? Make a beetroot rose and cucumber leaf garnish. Add to one side of the plate and serve the dressed leaves and roasted vegetables.
