It was Sunday and I was graving for some veggies. I thought to do just simple potato, sweet potato and carrots in the oven, but after browsing in the webs while starving, I stumbled on a Jamie Oliver video on YouTube. He added vinegar to the vegetables and I was interested because I’ve never really tried oven roasted vegetables with acidic twist.
I had mixed carrots, zucchini, potatoes and beetroots. This was so easy and simple, you just cut up the vegetables to a desired shape. You could do some more chunkier pieces, but then the baking time might be a bit longer. So for the spices I added freshly ground sea salt and black pepper and some olive oil. For the zucchini and carrots I used white wine vinegar as for the potatoes and beets I used balsamic vinegar. Just mix the vegetables in a bowl with the spices and vinegar and place them to the a baking tray which I have lined with baking sheet.
Roast the vegetables in the oven for about 35 minutes at 200 °C/392 °F or until the vegetables are as crispy and golden as you want. Let them cool for a bit before serving. While the veggies were roasting I created an “what ever I have in the pantry” dip. I used some Greek yogurt, a little bit of sour cream, BBQ sauce, Worcester sauce, balsamic vinegar, herb salt and pepper. I also made ground beef patties for some protein.
This was so delicious, hearty and filling especially with the beef patties. The dip was okay but it wasn’t my favorites. Making your own dip is so easy and you can add what ever you want. Zucchini wasn’t as good as the other roasted veggies and also the vinegar wasn’t the best decision. The vinegar made the zucchini to resemble more of pickle than anything else. 😆 But overall this was super delicious! 🤤
One of my favorite vegetable is beetroot and you can make so much with it. Some nutritional info on beetroots; beetroots contains lots of good minerals e.g. kalium, calsium, magnesium, iron, zinch and also folate and tryptophan as well as A-, E-, C-, B-vitamins and lots of fiber.
