Ingredients

Pasta:

  • 2 large or 3 medium sweet potatoes peeled
  • 3 beets peeled
  • 5 tsp lemon juice divided
  • 1 head fennel thinly sliced on a mandoline
  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Assembly:

  • 1 cup arugula
  • 1/4 cup hazelnuts toasted
  • 5 dates finely minced
  • 100 g burrata torn
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • Fennel fronds reserved

Instructions

  • Spiralize the sweet potatoes and beets and keep them separate.
  • Add a few tablespoons of water to a large pan and add in the sweet potatoes. Cover and simmer until the sweet potatoes steam lightly until al dente, about 4-5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Return the pan and do the same thing with the beets, this time adding a teaspoon of lemon juice. Drain and lightly rinse to remove some of the excess red colour.
  • Return the pan to the heat with two tablespoons of olive oil. Add all but 1/4 cup of the sliced fennel and the fennel fronds and saute on medium until golden. Add the sweet potatoes and toss until warmed through. Then add the beets, the remaining 4 teaspoons of lemon juice, lemon zest, parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Toss until warmed through.
  • Transfer to a serving platter and top with the arugula, hazelnuts, dates, and burrata. Drizzle with a teaspoon each of oil and lemon juice, and garnish with a teaspoon of lemon zest, the reserved sliced fennel and fennel fronds. Enjoy!
