  5. 1/3 of the marinade (see above)
Winter Vegetables
  1. Set Oven to 200 Degrees Celcius
  1. Chop up all the Vegetables in equal sizes so they cook evenly once in the oven.
  1. Mix spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, chilli, salt and peppar) and add mustard, honey, lemon juice and olive oil. Pour 3/4 of the marinade over the chopped vegetables. Set aside and save the rest (1/4) for your winter salad.
Mix and 30 minute trip into oven
  1. Place your marinated vegetables on grease proof paper on a baking tray.
  2. Into the oven for 30 minutes.
  3. You can now serve all of the winter vegetables with grilled fish or chicken for four people - or save half for your second dish - warm winter salad or soup. OR - even eat 1/3 for your dinner no 1, and save the east for the other two options below 🙂
  1. Approx 450 grams of the oven baked winter vegetables
  2. 400 ml Vegetable stock
  3. Mix the vegetables and the stock in a food processor, and set to gently simmer on medium.
  4. Add 100 grams (or more if you prefer) pre cooked lentils.
  5. Pour into your soup bowls, and add a dollop of natural yoghurt and parsley. Winter warmth with a whizz!
Warm Winter Salad
  1. Approx 400 grams of Winter Vegetables - heat them up if saved from earlier - or warm from the oven.
  2. Place the vegetables on top of raw spinach leaves in your serving dish.
  3. Add Feta cheese - or why not Gorgonzola - in small slices on top.
  4. Add pomegranate seeds for tanginess and extra crunch.
  5. Pour over the saved 1/3 of marinade you reserved from your winter vegetables.
  6. Ready, steady, healthy dinner - done!
  1. Warmth, health, easy, nutritious, options for a busy week - or cosy weekend! So much enjoyment from 30 minutes in the oven! Enjoy!
