to defy the winter weather out there and protect us from nasty pathogens, we should take extra care in consuming our daily allowance of vitamins. But what sounds simple and logical in theory is not always easy to implement in practice …
With this recipe, however, it is really simple and, above all, delicious! Because broccoli, pumpkin, carrots and onions combine with balsamic and maple syrup to form a wonderful, crisp oven dish, which can be served either on its own or as a tasty side dish!
Roasted winter vegetables
for 2-3 servings
- 200g broccoli
- 200g pumpkin
- 200g carrots
- 2 red onions
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1 tsp mustard
Preheat the oven to 200 ° C and lay out a baking tray with baking paper.
Wash the vegetables, if necessary peel and cut into bite-sized pieces and mix everything in a large bowl. In a second bowl stir in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup and mustard. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and mix well. Put the vegetables on the baking tray, distribute well and bake for 20-25 minutes.
As I said before, this tastes great as a side dish, but also as a main course – for example mixed with boiled wheat, some feta and nuts!
The dish can also be comprised of whichever vegetables you want – why not try it with brussel sprouts, cauliflower or sweet potatoes? And if you prefer your vegetables a little less ‘al dente’, just keep it in the oven for about 10 minutes longer!
