I am a firm believer in the power of a roasted vegetable. Not only can virtually every vegetable be cooked in this way — no recipe required — but roasted vegetables are universally pleasurable to eat. Have a picky eater in the house? Want a break from your usual steamed veggie side dish? Try roasting your broccoli or green beans or cauliflower tonight. I think you're in for a treat.
EASY HARISSA VEGGIE BOWL February 1, 2016 By Jo Anderson 2 Comments So Corey and I may have eaten this harissa veggie bowl 8 nights in a row. Its that good. We have been eating more vegetarian meals lately and we seriously need to expand our repertoire so when I can’t think of what to make I revert to this. In fact I have the veggies in the oven roasting as I type this. Its a great way to use up the left overs in your fridge before market day because you can make it with anything really…
Squash and ricotta pasta bake Added in two red peppers and roasted them with the butternut squash; added in large onion & chilli flakes with the garlic. Used 3 very generous tbsp ricotta. Added in 80g chopped kale (which worked well) The sage leaves on top were delicious - use lots. Next time: use a very large butternut squash, add in even more veg, e.g. courgettes &/or mushrooms. I served it with steamed broccoli, but salad or green beans might be better.
If you know you are going to be pushed on Christmas Day, then it is possible to half-roast the potatoes the day before (see Preparing Ahead, below). On Christmas Day the potatoes just need to be re-roasted in a hot oven for about 20 minutes.
