Method

  2. Drizzle the bread with oil and season with salt.
  3. Toast on the middle shelf of the oven for 15 minutes. Stirring 2 – 3 times to ensure an even colour. Let cool.

  7. For the Caesar dressing, drain the water from the cashews (that have been soaked overnight) and rinse. Blend together with the rest of the Caesar dressing ingredients. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. To build your salad, add the lettuce leaves into your bowl, followed by the romaine salad, kale, Quorn Fillets and Vegetarian Bacon. Top with croutons and grated parmesan.
