Roasted Kumera Salad.

900gm each red kumera and orange kumera
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1tsp fresh chopped rosemary
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp yellow mustard seeds.
S & P

Dressing(mix together)
1 cup sour cream
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
chopped parsley
S & P

Cube kumera with skin on and combine with herbs and oil.
Bake at 180 dg til golden and tender (approx 30min)
Combine with dressing.
Delicious hot or cold.

I use any kumera I have, and sometimes add pumpkin.
I roast 3/4 of a red onion with the kumera and use the remaining 14 in the dressing.
ran out of yellow mustard seeds, and it still tasted great.

I had the most simple yet delicious kumara salad last night at my friends bbq. It was kumara (par-boiled as you would for a potato salad) cut into cubes, then covered in the thick mint sauce. Very refreshing and simple. I enjoyed something a little different.

(My own recipe)
½ a small pumpkin2 kumara
1 large onion2 oranges
Parsley (handful)salad greens
Heat oven to 180 degrees C.Peel pumpkin and kumara and cut into small chunks.Put into a plastic bag and pour in about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Coat veges in oil and then tip out onto a baking paper lined oven tray.Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes until tender, but not over cooked.Take out of oven.Slice onion very finely.Chop up parsley.Zest the oranges.Retain the zest and peel the oranges and cut up.
Put some salad greens on top of a large, flat plate or platter.(Dandelion leaves are very good, or Spring mix or similar etc)Transfer roast veges on to salad leaves, on plate.Top with cut up oranges, sliced onion, chopped parsley and orange zest.Serve warm or chill.
DRESSING:Juice 1 orange, add equal parts of vinegar and olive oil. Shake or whisk to combine, and gently pour over salad.

You could also do a kumara bake - chop and boil kumara then place in dish.Mix cream together with a packet of onion and a packet of cream of chicken soup.top with grated cheese and bake until the cream thickens! YUM

Out of the Heart Foundation cookbook.Dice cooked Kumara, add spring onions, add peanuts, add sliced banana last.Mix raw sugar and lemon juice and oil for dressing.Better made ahead.You could add whatever else you like.I have added a little mint and garlic and it was nice too.
