For the tempeh marinade combine all ingredients except the oil. Mix together and slowly incorporate oil. Slice tempeh into 10 slices. Add to

For the tahini dressing combine all ingredients in a blender, except oil and herbs. Blend until smooth and slowly incorporate oil. Pour into a mixing bowl and whisk in the fresh herbs.

For the beetroot hummus drain beetroot and chickpeas, discard liquid. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

For the orange vinaigrette combine all ingredients except oil. Slowly whisk in oil. Check seasoning.

Half of the vinaigrette will be used in the Cauliflower Coucous and half in the Carrot and Lentil Salad.

For the pickled red cabbage combine vinegar, sugar and salt. Heat until sugar and salt have dissolved. Pour over cabbage.

For the cauliflower couscous combine cauliflower with salt and pulse in a food processor until it resembles couscous. Place in a mixing bowl and toss with the Orange Vinaigrette and chives, parsley and mint.

For the green lentils place in a small pot and cover with plenty of water, or vegetable stock if you have it. Add salt and bay leaf and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer just until tender. Approximately 10 minutes. Drain and remove bay leaf.

For the carrot and lentil salad cut baby carrots lengthwise. Coat the carrots in the ground cumin, brown sugar, cider vinegar, salt and pepper and oil. Roast in oven at 220°C for 20-30 minutes, or until tender but still have a bit of bite. Toss with green lentils, rocket and orange vinaigrette.
