- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- FOR THE YOGHURT DRESSING
- FOR THE ROOT VEGETABLES
- 1 cup plain low fat yoghurt
- bunch of baby heirloom carrots
- 2 Tbsp coriander, very finely chopped
- Punnet of baby leeks (or quartered red onions)
- FOR SERVING
- Punnet of baby sweet potatoes, halved (or larger sweet potatoes cut into smaller chunks)
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- mint leaves
- 1 tsp honey
- micro herbs
- Cape Herb and Spice SRIRACHA CHILLI
- edible flowers (optional)
- METHOD -
Preheat your oven to 200 ºC. Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and honey and dust generously with the Cape Herb & Spice Sriracha Chilli Seasoning . Toss through to ensure everything is coated. Line a baking tray with baking paper (this makes cleaning up easier) and tumble the vegetables on. Roast until the vegetables are cooked through and starting to caramelize – this should take around 30 to 40 minutes depending on how small the vegetables are.
(Note: Leeks tend to roast quicker than other vegetables, so check them and remove them earlier if necessary.)
Mix the coriander with the yoghurt to create your cooling yoghurt dressing.
Tumble the veggies onto a platter along with peppery watercress, fresh mint and some micro herbs and edible flowers. Give it a final light dusting of the Sriracha seasoning and drizzle generously with the yoghurt dressing.
This recipe serves 2 as a vegetarian main or 4 as an accompaniment.
