Here is another recipe aimed at the new cooks who are currently finding their way around the kitchen for the first time.
Roasted veg is a classic that takes all the sweat out of cooking in general. I have scaled this down for 2 people so adjust amounts according to the number of people in your household.
- 1 pounds root vegetables, such as carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, and beets
- 1 small red onion
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (I like course sea salt because of the crunchy salt explosions but they are probably not heart-healthy – so any salt will suffice)
- freshly ground black pepper (fresh ground pepper is best but if your stock cupboard has ground white pepper that is fine – just go easy with it)
- 1 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves (optional)
OR a teaspoon of something more spicy if you prefer such as paprika, ground cumin or coriander.
As a One-Pot solution – you can place chicken pieces in with the veg and have a whole meal in a pan!
You can also use sausages with this instead of chicken but if you are using veggie sausages make sure they don’t over cook.
I often add mushrooms but make sure they do not overcook.
