Tenina.com's Pumpkin and Kale Salad



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 oven trays with baking paper.

  2. Place barley into the Thermomix basket. Fill Thermomix with water to the 1 litre mark. Insert basket. Cook 30 min/100°C/speed 4. Set aside in a bowl and stir through vinegar, EVOO and raisins. The raisins will plump up a bit which is what we want.

  3. To make the browned butter, place butter into a pan over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until butter has browned and smells nutty. Remove from heat and stir through curry powder. Set aside 40g of this butter for the dressing.

  4. To make the dressing, place all dressing ingredients into the Thermomix bowl and combine 20 sec/speed 7. Set aside.

  5. Place pumpkin and shallots onto prepared trays, drizzle with EVOO and season with salt. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pumpkin is almost roasted. Add almonds and kale to the trays and drizzle remaining browned butter all over. Bake a further 8-10 minutes or until kale is crispy.

  6. To assemble, place roasted veg onto a serving platter topped with barley and the dressing.
