Winter Roast Veggie Salad
Colour up your diet with this yummy medley!
When it's a little brrr outside lets get our ovens cranking and load our bodies up on some nutrient dense veggies. Seasonal vegetables can fluctuate in price point so I modify this recipe depending what is available and how labour intensive I want to make it!
Why not try to aim for as many colours as you can. I encourage you to eat at least 16 different foods in a day...this salad will chop a good 10 off if you're clever with herbs and veggies.
10 cups of cubed roast vegetables*. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper.
Cook on trays in this order:
1) *Potatos, parsnip, carrots, kumara, beets...take the longest (30-40min)
2) *Red onion, capsicum, courgette...take the shortest (15-20mins)
Meanwhile cook israeli couscous (or substitute for brown rice or quinoa). Takes ~12min.
Prepare dressing by placing all ingredients in saucepan and heat untill bubbling and thickened (10min or so).
- 2 Tbsp rice bran oil
- 4 Tbsp sweet chilli or chilli jam
- 1 Tbsp cider vinegar
- 3 Tbsp grainy mustard
- 3 Tbsp water
Combine all veggies, couscous, dressing. Toss through herbs such as fresh coriander, parsley, mint and chives, and feta, and enjoy hot or cold.
