An Italian Vermentino has a peppery kick that will be awesome with the arugula.

TK Table Talk:

What is the one thing you couldn’t live without?

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Roast Broccoli: Add broccoli, onion, pepitas and garlic to the baking sheet. Drizzle with 1½ tablespoons olive oil (coconut oil or avocado oil for Paleo), ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat with your hands. Roast for 8 minutes. Toss with spatula and roast until red onion and broccoli are a crispy brown in places (about 6-8 more minutes).

3. Make Dressing: While broccoli is roasting, cut lemon in half. Add juice from lemon, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, honey, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a mixing bowl and whisk together. Set aside.

4. Divide arugula and apples between two bowls or plates.

To Serve: Whisk the dressing again and spoon dressing over each salad and serve.

Pro Tip:

Add some spice! Toss a ¼ teaspoon of your favorite spice to the broccoli mixture before roasting. We love ground chipotle!

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos with @terraskitchen and #terraskitchen.
