roasted veg

Using up: sweet potatoes, other veg

vegetables ready to be roasted

We haven’t had this for ages, and I really don’t know why. It’s simple to prepare, and utterly lovely.We had a couple of sweet potatoes in the veg box this week; not enough to make a sweet potato mash, so this is what I did.

Cut up into chunks: 2 medium sweet potatoes, 1 courgette, 2 carrots, 1 red pepper, 1 red onion.  Finely chopped 3 cloves of garlic.

Put all this in a bowl with some sea salt, and some good, strong olive oil and mixed it up with my hands. I have discovered through trial and error that this is the only way to get everything coated.

Put in an oven at gas 6 for about 45 minutes – 1 hour.  It’s hard to be precise because of the size of the veg chunks.  I was running late due to the cake making, and so I covered the veg with a tin foil hat for about 20 minutes to give them a kick start, or you could give them 5 minutes in the microwave.

Serve with cous cous.  Delicious!
