Baby Spinach Recipes 121Serves 4


  • 1 bunch Heirloom carrots, trimmed, washed & scrubbed
  • 75gm unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • Zest of one lemon
  • salt flakes & cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 6 thyme sprigs
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 packet Rainbow Fresh Baby Spinach
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tbsp walnut pieces
  • 200gm goats feta (can use normal feta if goats in unavailable)


For the Heirloom carrots:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place carrots on this in a single layer. Place cubes of butter over the carrots then drizzle with the honey and season with salt and pepper. Add thyme and mix well. Finish off by drizzling with olive oil.

Roast for 15-20 minutes, turning the carrots once in between cooking time, until tender.

When carrots are cooked, discard the thyme sprigs allow to cool for 3-4 minutes, then combine baby spinach leaves, lemon zest, raisins and walnuts and mix with your hands until the heat of the carrots just makes the baby spinach leaves collapse a little.

Arrange the salad on a large serving platter, topping with torn pieces of the goats feta on top.
