Gomasio is dry Japanese condiment also known as sesame salt. We’ve used it to jazz up your traditional parsnip chip and paired it with flavoursome tempeh, a fresh side salad and tartare sauce.
1. Set oven to 200ºC.
Add sesame seeds and 1/2 tsp salt to a small food processor. Blend into a crumb consistency.

2. Cut parsnips into chips. Coat with 1 1/2 tbsp oil and then sesame crumb. Lay on lined oven tray and roast in oven for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked through.

3. Halve tomatoes. Dice cucumber and capsicum. Toss together in a bowl with 1 tbsp vinegar and 1 tbsp olive oil. Set aside. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Finely chop dill. Combine with 1 crushed garlic clove, 2 tsp vinegar and yoghurt. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

5. Cut tempeh into batons. Coat with 1 tsp smoked paprika, 2 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Heat frypan over medium-high heat and cook for 2-3 minutes each side until golden. Take off heat and squeeze over lemon juice.

6. Divide tempeh, salad and chips among plates. Serve with tartare sauce.
