I made the carrots the chickpeas the stars as you can easily leave off the protein (you can use chicken, lamb etc) and it is a wonderful meal on its own.

  • Prep Time:

  • Cook Time:
    30 min
  • Ready Time:
    40 min


2 servings




7-8 oz Skirt Steak

Baby Rocket (Arugula)

12 or so medium carrots

Can of Chickpeas rinsed well

Fresh Mint

Feta Cheese

Cumin and Smoked Paprika

Dressing: Juice of one orange, lemon, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1 tablespoon honey and salt and pepper to taste. Wisk well together.


Start by roasting the carrots and chickpeas. Make sure you cut the carrots down to a nice size so they get good caramelization on them and not to big to eat. Put them both on a tray with olive oil. Sprinkle a little cumin on the carrots and smoked paprika on the chickpeas then season them both with salt and pepper. Into a 425degree oven for 25-40 min depending on your oven. They are ready when the are getting some good color on them.

I marinated my steak in cilantro, garlic and lime juice but you can do your protein anyway you like. Cook your steak to your temperature and set aside to rest for a few minutes then slice.

To assemble put your rocket on a plate followed by the carrots, scatter the chickpeas around and add your sliced steak. Crumble the feta cheese on top and spoon the dressing all around finishing with a good scatter of fresh mint.

Healthy, delicious and awesome!


NOTE: Lamb, leftover chicken all make great protein to add.
