  2. Build each bowl by putting half the quinoa in each. Lay the slices of beetroot on top, followed by the spinach, cauliflower, broccoli and walnuts. Combine the tahini, hummus, lemon juice and 1 tbsp water in a small pot. Before eating, coat in the dressing. Serve with the lemon wedges.

A really delicious and filling lunch. Made it at home to bring to work, lovely flavours and textures.

I love it! I made it for lunch at work today and a second serving for tomorrow. It's so palatable! I used my self-made houmous from another recipe that I found here at goodfood. I'll eat this salad more often from now on. Thank you for all those tasty and healthy recipes!

Love it. I swap the beetroot for blanched courgettes ribbons because i don't like beetroot and its fabulous. So filling and easy - also don't feel like im missing out on any meat. I disagree with the previous comment about the lemons, the lemon is quite subtle. I also eat it cold as a salad. Firm favorite in our house

I made this for work lunch today, it needs a lot less lemon than the recipe calls for as is really sharp. Is really filling so you will only need a small portion. When heated up this smells really bad, it stank the whole office out.

Adding a bay leaf to cooking cauliflower and/or broccoli is said to remove the smell. Worth a try, maybe?

This is a new favorite in my house, serve it with beet root hummus. And we feel so healthy while and after eating it! It's really filling but in a pleasant way, not in a food coma way.
