Roasting vegetables helps to caramelise them and bring out the flavour. Adding herbs, spices, garlic and healthy oils supports the development of colour and texture.
Use a variety of in season vegetables. I have used sweet potato, pumpkin, kohl rabi, beetroot and cauliflower. Cut all of the veggies into chunks and place in a baking dish with chopped onion, fresh garlic, olive oil, black pepper, sea salt and mixed herbs (dried or fresh). Another option instead of mixed herbs is to use dried herbs such as paprika, cumin and turmeric.
Give the veggies a good mix with a large spoon or spatula so that all the veggies are coated with oil, herbs and spices. I purposefully haven’t put measures for the spices and herbs as everyone has different tastes and experimentation is required to obtain the flavour combination that is perfect for you. Garlic and onion are also optional as some people cannot eat these. A general guide is a couple of cloves of garlic, one onion and a 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper to suit and a good handful of mixed herbs (parsley and chives would be ideal).
Bake in a 200 degree celsius oven until golden and delicious. Give the veggies a turn over half way through cooking when they are starting to crisp.
Serve on a platter and enjoy!
