Today I'm sharing a recipe and giveaway from the #eatcleanmethod collaboration between Method and Deliciously Ella. Method is a pioneer of planet-friendly and design-driven home, laundry and hand wash products formulated with naturally derived, biodegradable ingredients. Ella Woodward is the UK’s leading food blogger with a passion for clean, natural eating and living. Inspired by the fresh ingredients - pomegranate, almond and clementine - in method’s natural cleaning products, Ella created three new vibrant and tasty recipes. I'm sharing the main course which is a visually stunning salad with an amazing mix of orange, pomegranate, carrot and herbs tossed with buckwheat and spices.
pomegranate, parsley + buckwheat salad
created for method by Deliciously Ella
one of the things we love about this recipe is the colours - the reds and oranges really pop. bursting with flavours + textures your tastebuds will love it.
cooking and prep time, total 25 mins
2 tsp ras el hanout
olive oil for drizzling
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 carrots, peeled and julienned or grated
2 oranges, peeled + pith removed + sliced into circles
1 large bunch flat leaf parsley, leaves picked
1 small bunch dill, fronds picked
1 handful fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
1 pomegranate, seeds removed
1. in a saucepan, cover your buckwheat with the water, bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 – 8 minutes, until most of the water is absorbed. drain the buckwheat through a sieve and rinse with cold water. drain again and then put into a bowl, mix in the ras el hanout, oil + seasoning.
2. while your buckwheat is cooking, peel your carrots and then using a julienne peeler, shred the carrots into thin strips and mix into your buckwheat. next cut the skin + pith from your oranges, then cut them into thin circles and mix into your buckwheat salad, letting the flavours all meld together.
3. pick the leaves from your parsley and chuck onto a serving platter, then mix through with the buckwheat. throw on your dill, mint + pomegranate seeds and give another mix, then serve.
nice served along side roasted cauliflower + carrots with cumin.
method thinks people just don’t pay enough attention to pomegranates. that’s why they’ve devoted an entire limited edition collection to this bright, ripe fruit, now this colourful superfood takes centre stage in Ella's fresh + fruity salad.
