The key to the mujadara is to heavily caramelise the onions. This brings out the rich sweet flavours that go really well with the green irony cavolo nero.

Moemoe potatoes are a heritage Māori variety grown organically by Spring Collective.

You’ll need a baking tray, a large heavy-bottomed fry pan, a blender, and a small pot for this recipe.

 

 

Instructions

1

Bring a small pot of water to the boil with a pinch of salt. Cook the brown rice for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

2

Wash the root vegetables, peel the parsnip and beetroot. Cut all the root vegetables into large pieces so everything is about the same size. The beetroot will probably take the longest to cook. Toss in a little oil with a pinch of salt then place on a roasting tray and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until fully cooked.

3

Peel and thinly slice the onions.

Trim the woody stalk from the cavolo nero, discard, then thinly slice the leaves.

In a large (ideally heavy-bottomed) fry pan, on medium-high heat, add the onions with a pinch of salt and a splash of oil. Reduce the heat and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring regularly until dark brown. Add the cavolo nero and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the cavolo nero is well wilted.

4

Open and strain the beans.

Roughly chop the garlic.

Combine the beans, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, water and a pinch of salt. Blend until smooth. Add more water, if needed. Taste and add more salt, as required.

5

Once the rice is cooked, strain and mix with the onion and cavolo nero. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Keep warm.

Remove the mint from the stalk and thinly slice.

6

Spread white bean hummus on the bottom of a plate. Top with mujadara and roasted baby vegetables, then sprinkle over mint.
