Mmmm, roast vegetables

I love roast vegetables and cook them as an easy side dish a few times a week. So easy and so very yummo.
Peel, chop and start roasting the harder vegetables. I have sweet potato and potato with a little butter, a drizzle of olive oil, salt n' pepper. I looove roasted turnips at the moment too. You can also throw in pumpkin, carrots, corn - anything......
When they are half cooked, I throw in some onion and garlic cloves...
a squeeze of lemon juice and sometimes a little honey...
Garnished with toasted pine nuts, fresh herbs and crumbed fetta. I usually serve with a salad and a steak.
Do you have any easy sides? Please share, I need start throwing in a few extra recipes.


PS: I am joining up with Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drummer Boys.

  3. Yummm, I did honey roasted carrots as a side last night. I have also just started doing a sort of "smashed" cauliflower mixed with a little parmesan, butter and pepper. Love the roast veggies!

  6. You'll love my roast vegetable salad recipe then! Roast pumpkin, onion, capsicum & zucchini slices. Then add to a bowl of green salad leaves and toasted pine nuts. You can't get much yummier and easier than that!
