  • You can adapt this recipe to use whatever vegetables you like, or you have in your fridge. It's best to include a starchy vegetable such as potato or butternut squash to keep it filling if eating alone. 
  • Season with whatever spices you enjoy. Adding garlic and mixed herbs is another way of seasoning that I regularly use for roasted veg. 
  • Add to pasta, serve with some rice or some bean burgers to use this recipe as a tasty side dish.
