Roasted Root Vegetables with Feta

| March 28, 2013

Welcome to my series of weekly family meals. I’ll share my favourite fresh, nutritious, easy and quick meals for the whole family to enjoy. Where possible, we always eat and cook with organic ingredients. I like to buy the freshest produce for my family to ensure we’re getting the essential vitamins and minerals we need through our food.

This week’s Family Meal is Roasted Root Vegetables with Feta. It’s a tasty way to give your family lots of healthy veg. It’s a delicious combination of root vegetables served with beetroot, broccoli and crumbled feta. Serve warm or prepare in advance until the family is ready to eat.

  • 8 cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Red Onions
  • 3 Carrots
  • 3 Sweet Potatoes
  • 4 New Potatoes
  • 1 Courgette
  • 1 Sweet Red Pepper

  • 250g (1 packet) of Organic Cooked Beetroot
  • 100g low-fat Feta
  • A dash of Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil for the light dressing

Let’s Make Roasted Root Vegetables with Feta

1. Wash, peel and dice the root vegetables (Carrots and Potatoes) into cubes. Boil until soft and drain.

2. Peel and cut the Onions into quarters.

3. Wash and chop the Courgette and Red Pepper.

4. Add root vegetables, Garlic, Onion, Courgette and Pepper into an oven roasting pan. Pour a drizzle of olive oil over and stir gently in the pan to partially coat the vegetables. Sprinkle the Dried Herbs over the veg. Cook at 180 degrees Celcius on fan bake for 25 minutes or until vegetables start to brown slightly.

5. Wash the Broccoli and chop into bite sized pieces. Boil for 40 seconds and drain.

6. Remove vegetables from oven and transfer into a salad bowl.

7. Crumble the Feta over the vegetables and add a splash of Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil as a light dressing.

8. Add the Broccoli and roughly cut Beetroot into the bowl of vegetables. Mix gently.

9. Ready to serve and enjoy!
