oven roasted veggies

preparation time: 10 minutes + 20 minutes baking
ingredients (for two servings):
  • 4 potatoes, peeled/washed and sliced
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 200gram parsley root, peeled and sliced
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2tbs olive oil
  • pinch of salt, pepper, chili, paprika powder
  • two small tomatoes, washed and chopped
  • handful fresh parsley, washed and chopped
preparation:
  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except tomatoes and parsley, spread out on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 200 degrees (400F°) for 20 minutes.
  2. Remove the veggies from the oven and mix with tomatoes and parsley before you serve them on two plates.
Tips: 
  • Check the oven after 10 or 15 minutes to prevent that the veggies get burned. 
  • The smaller your slices are, the quicker they’ll be soft.
  • You can vary the veggies you use for this meal. I love to roast e.g. broccoli, aubergine, mushrooms and zucchini.

As I already mentioned in my recipe for vegan curry fried rice, it’s very important to vary the ingredients and recipes you use. Your body won’t be happy about oatmeal, bread and carrot salad each and every day. The key to receive all essential substances is variation! I really hope you’ll find some various inspirations for your daily meals. Of course there are ingredients I use more often than others. Broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, oranges and banana are fruits and veggies I could eat every day and there are some I prefer less, e.g. beetroot and kidney beans.

The right combination of food is very important too. Corn + beans together contain e.g. even more proteins than an egg. But don’t worry that you have to eat these two together in one meal. It’s still effective if you eat them during one day, corn in a salad for lunch and beans in a curry for dinner.

Guess who inspired me to prepare oven roasted veggies again? It’s been Izzy from Sweden that I’m following on Instagram, because she shares lots of great posts. Her plates are usually filled with potatoes, veggies, greens and hummus. If you take a closer look at her feed, you notice that she varies a lot and that she listens to her body and eats exactly what she currently wishes for. That’s great! Don’t stress yourself to much on healthy eating. It’s quite important to feel relaxed and to enjoy your meals!

“Guten Appetit!”
