Another day as a vegetarian and another chance to make something interesting out of vegetables. In an added twist, I’m buying reduced veg only, in an effort to curb food waste, and encourage me not to miss the deadline!
So today, a double bunch of broccoli for 17p and a cauliflower for 44p. Here is what I’ve come up with.
Chop your broccoli into small pieces, along with the cauliflower.
Add them to a foil lined baking tray with a few bulbs of garlic.
Drizzle over olive oil, then season with salt and pepper, plus chilli flakes and cinnamon.
Place your food in the oven at 180C for 25 minutes.
It should come out if the oven looking something like this:
Spoon the vegetables into the centre of the plate, piling as high as your appetite!
Add a couple of slices of lime as bunny ears; the lime slices through the heat of the chilli flakes beautifully. Your garlic cloves will be soft and edible without the bitterness of raw garlic.
Overall, a lovely warm dish, and the heat from the chilli lingers in a lovely aftertaste.
The leftovers make a nice evening dish with some rice or grains of your choice. Here’s a serving suggestion; enjoy!
