Roasted Vegetables with a Twist
Vegetables. As a kid, you don’t care if they are “good for you and will make you big and strong!” – you’re not having a bar of them. And as an adult, you only put them in your trolley so the check out chick doesn’t judge your life choices.
Fortunately, The Chief Life have provided the perfect solution to this dilemna, and one I have wholeheartedly adopted. Fast, easy and delicious – this recipe puts a whole new twist on vegetables and spices up even the most bland testing of veg. (Looking at you, squash!).
A bit of olive oil, a bit of salt and…a bit of cinnamon. Not even kidding. Sprinkle some cinnamon on your vegetables, pop them in the oven and even the most veggie-opposed person in your household will probably eat 3 x their recommended daily fibre intake. And you’ll suddenly regret this decision.
As you can see in the above picture, I branched out and also threw on some Italian Herbs. Gettin’ wild now!
One of the biggest turn-offs of vegetables is the preconception that they are bland, tasteless and boring. And, I whole heartedly agree. Anyone that excitedly spouts their love for raw broccoli is a little liar. LIAR!
But with more and more recipes such as the ones below coming out, it’s making veggies that much more consumable and palatable. Give it a go, I promise you will come out smiling the other end! (Oh…which what did you just take that? 😉 )
- Baking trays.
- Baking paper.
- Vegetables. Of any kind. Seriously - carrot, zucchini, eggplant...anything!
- Olive oil (maximum of 2tbsp per baking tray).
- Line your baking trays with your baking paper and preheat the oven to 180C fan forced. (200C conventional)
- Cut your veg and spread them out across your baking trays. Don't worry about them being evenly spaced.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon as generously as you desire. If it's your first time, be gentle.
- Put them in the oven for 30-40 minutes.
I’ve found that it’s really helped bring my love for vegetables back to life. Having them constantly steamed or even just plain old roasted wasn’t cutting it anymore. Give this a go and I guarantee that you will love it!
