1 tsp curry powder
Large pinch of turmeric

Method

     +    
ORANGE DRESSING

Place the orange and lemon juice into a pan and reduce by 2/3 on a medium heat, then place into a bowl and leave to cool. Add the olive oil and add the thyme before giving a little stir and check the seasoning.

Place the cut beets all into a bowl, crush the walnuts on top of the beetroot, add any orange segments, the dressing, season with milled pepper and course sea salt then stir well.

     +    
BROWN RICE, YOGURT, LIME SALAD

Place a pan of salted water onto a quick boil, using 20g of salt per litre. Cook the broccoli for 2-3 minutes, then chill in iced water and drain. Then slice the stalks into thin slices and the heads into florets.

Mix the cucumber into the yogurt with the lime juice & zest, Agave, seasoning and then add the cooked rice, mint and broccoli.

     +    
THE POTATOES

Place the potatoes, mint sprigs, curry powder, garlic in a pan with the cold water and slowly bring to a simmer, cook for 20-30 minutes until just tender depending on the size. When the potatoes are nearly cooked, take them off to the side and leave to cool at room temperature in the cooking liquid so they take on more flavour. Drain from the water and leave to dry before placing them on a board and cut in half.

     +    
MAYO

Place the mustard garlic, salt, pepper, vinegar and egg yolk into a Magimix bowl for approx. 2-3 mins until emulsified. Pour the oil in to the egg mix quickly, whisking well and keep adding the rest of the oil. You may need to add a little water to the mix, if it gets too thick.
