Oranges are popular for their ability to lend vibrancy and tartness to dishes. This dinner for two sees them roasted alongside sweet root vegetables and creamy goat’s cheese and drizzled with a gorgeously zesty dressing.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Arrange the pepper, fennel and carrots on a baking tray and toss with the olive oil and some seasoning. Roast for 25 minutes.
  2. Turn up the oven to gas 9, 240°C, fan 220°C. Scatter the goat’s cheese and orange slices over the veg and roast for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is golden at the edges.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the dressing ingredients in a jar with a lid; season and shake well.
  4. Arrange the vegetables, oranges and cheese on serving plates. Add a handful of salad to each, then scatter over the pecans. Pour over the dressing and serve.
