“Eat your veg, it’s good for you”
I enjoy roast veg just with some salt and pepper but this can get boring so I decided to spice it up.
Pick any veg that you like, vegetables that are high in water don’t work as well.
- French beans
- Baby corn
You can use the same recipe with diced meat.
Cut your chosen vegetables into bite size pieces.
Take some oil, garlic and red chilli powder and make a paste the same consistency as pesto.
Marinate the vegetables. I like to do this in the morning so they can really sit in and absorb all the flavours.
When you are ready to eat, pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees.
Take a bowl and add some plain flour, pepper and red chilli powder. I also add vegetable stock. You want a 50:50 ratio with the stock and the flour ( a powder stock works the best). If not, mash the cube with the flour through a sieve to make sure it is mixed in nicely.
Coat all the vegetables with the powder.
Bake them. I put them in at 200 degrees for about 15 minutes. This way they stay crunchy. That is my tasty roast vegetables!! Cooking them at a lower temperature for longer makes them wilt and become soggy!
