2017-02-18-19-46-24

Ingredients:

A range of root vegetables. I used potato, sweet potato and beetroot but also try parsnip, turnip or carrots as examples.

One large onion

One cup stock

Sea salt and black pepper

Other seasoning to suit your own tastes such as garlic, herbs or spices.

A baking dish. Glass or ceramic is ideal.

Method:

Slice all vegetables into thin slices. You can do this by hand or use a mandolin.

Peel the onion and finely slice.

Place the first layer of vegetables in the baking dish ie potato then sprinkle with some onion and seasoning. Continue with the layering using a different vegetable each time. When the final layer is complete add seasoning and add the stock to the dish.

Place in a 180 degrees celsius oven for 30 minutes with the dish covered with foil. Uncover and continue to bake until the top is a golden and crispy texture.

Use as a side dish or main. Enjoy!

Silverbeet, daikon and sweet potato bake

A flavoursome and nutritious dish that can be a meal on its own or a side dish. A gluten and dairy free vegetarian option using seasonal vegetables to support your wellbeing. This recipe uses healthy silverbeet, daikon which is a member of the radish family and the very delicious sweet potato. The dish is baked in the oven where the sweet potato becomes crunchy and sweet with the softness of the other ingredients underneath and everything held together by the egg and stock mixture.

Look at the colour in this dish!

Buying organic veggies is taking my creativity in the kitchen to a whole new level. I am loving eating the seasonal organic veggies l am buying and admit that some of them l wouldn’t normally have bought but now am loving the variety it is bringing to my diet. The cost of the veggies places a new importance on using all of them and being thrifty is inspiring me to try new combinations with the reward being an ever expanding menu.

So much variety and colour.

The ingredients in this dish are carrot, broccoli, leek, beetroot, daikon, asparagus and beet greens seasoned with olive oil, pink rock salt and black pepper. I baked the dish uncovered in a 180 degree celcius oven and turned them a few times.

Just reheat the veggies in a saucepan. An enormous piece of steamed cauliflower went well with the meal.

Use your imagination and use up the veggies you have. Roasting the veggies brings out a sweetness in them that l love.
