Don’t Start The Soup Slurp Yet. Warm Salads Are The Answer.

by Tefal Team on 19 September 2019
  • Summer may be almost over but that doesn’t mean you have to ditch your salad for soup. If you’re craving something warming but you’re not ready to quit the crunch, create the best of both worlds with an ultra tasty warm salad.

    Just like their cold counterparts, warm salads are a mix of sliced veggies and other delicious ingredients drizzled in all kinds of dressings. The difference is that some if not most of the ingredients are cooked and they’re often served while still warm.

    We’ve rustled up our favourites to give you all the inspiration you need this autumn. New to warm salads? Lettuce tempt you…

  • Super speedy

    If you think this all sounds like a lot of extra faff, the good news is that a warm salad can be just as quick to throw together as a regular one. When you’re pushed for time, these recipes will come to the rescue.

    Ready in just 20 minutes, this super healthy warm chicken salad is full of flavour and as simple as frying up the spiced chicken before adding to the other ingredients.

    This prawn and baby courgette salad has it all going on: succulent prawns, crunchy courgette and zingy lime and ginger with a good hit of chilli. It’s quick too, from fridge to plate in 15.

    What could be easier then this spice-rubbed steak and warm tomato salad? With just eight ingredients and 15 minutes hands on time, it’s hard to beat. Top tip: cook the steak to perfection on the OptiGrill.

  • Very veggie

    Nail your 5-a-day in one hit with a veg-packed warm salad, such as this roasted carrot and falafel salad – perfect for the ActiFry.

    Sweet and juicy pomegranate seeds are the star of this cauliflower, red onion and rice salad. And if you’re into trying new spices, za’atar will do nicely.

    Another sweet and savoury combo, this roasted squash, apple and warm lentil salad is autumn on a plate.

  • Nice and spicy

    Turn up the heat with some spice – guaranteed to warm the cockles as the temperature starts to drop.

    A zesty stir-fry in salad form, this warm Thai chicken and noodle salad is also a genius way of using up leftover chicken.

    Can we tempt you to tempeh? We bet we can with this spicy warm tempeh salad. Served with a rainbow of veg and drizzled in droolworthy dressing, fermented soybean never tasted so good. Fact.

    Or try something more traditional: warm goats cheese with walnuts and bacon topped with a spicy honey and balsamic dressing. What’s not to love about this classic French dish with a hot twist?

    Try one of these beauties or invent your own with whatever’s in your fridge. Autumn meals just got a whole lot more salad-isfying!
