Steak with Beetroot Mash


2 fillet steaks
115g/4oz kale
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 beetroot
2 medium potatoes
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp. mixed herbs
1 tsp. oregano
150ml/5fl oz unsweetened almond milk


Peel the beetroot and chop into small chunks. Place in a pan of boiling water and leave for approx. 30 minutes (until the beetroot has softened).
Meanwhile peel the potatoes and chop into small chunks, then place in a separate pan and boil until softened (approx. 20 minutes). Drain, then add the mixed herbs, oregano, garlic and almond milk. Mash until creamy then set aside until the beetroot is ready.
In a frying pan add a few sprays of olive oil and fry the steaks on a high heat for 1 minute each side. Turn down to a medium heat, then continue frying the steaks for 3 minutes each side (this is for medium rare. If you like your steak cooked well done add an extra minute or just cook for 2 minutes for rare).
Place the kale and sesame seeds in another frying pan and wilt until softened.
When the beetroot is ready, drain, then add to the pan with the mashed potatoes and mash until creamy and fully combined.
Plate up and serve.


On our recent trip to Bali we ate at the most amazing restaurant, called Indus, which is in Ubud. It has a fantastic view of the Tjampuhan river and surrounding hills and the food is incredible, so good that we decided to book onto one of the cooking classes. You can read all about that and find a delicious recipe for one of the dishes here

This steak and beet mash recipe is partially inspired by a meal we ate at Indus (Tunisian Salad on a bed of Beetroot Mash). We’d never had beetroot mash before and it was incredible so we’ve not even been home a week yet and have already experimented to find the perfect healthy recipe for the blog.

Hope you like it.
