I prepared a vegetarian roast dinner yesterday to welcome the new year. As you can notice from the heaviness of this meal, I'm not planning to have a diet or anything... well but seriously, these are all quite healthy things on the plate, aren't they. I didn't make anything new or experimental, these are all components I make fairly often, but maybe in other combinations. I have already posted some of these recipes, so I have added links below to the old posts.
Here are the components I had on the plate yesterday:
Sweet potato and bean Schnitzel – Recipe here
Redcurrant and chilli jam – Recipe here
Roasted potatoes – Brush small potatoes with olive oil, paprika and sea salt and roast in the oven until done.
Steamed flower sprouts – Steam the flower sprouts until done.
Cauliflower and cheese bake – Steam or boil the cauliflower florets a little. Cook finely chopped garlic soft in olive oil and add little vegetable stock, salt, black pepper and thyme and pour on the cauliflower florest. Cover with cheese and bake until done. This can of course also be made with cream, recipe for example here.
Chestnut mushrooms with onion and garlic – Simply cook the onion, garlic and chestnut mushrooms in olive oil until nicely done. Season with sage, salt and pepper.
Tomato and mixed leaf salad with pine nuts and pomegranate molasses dressing – Dressing recipe here and otherwise just throw in whatever you like in a salad. This combination is probably my most used as a side salad.
Roasted mini shallots – Peel the shallots and brush them with olive oil. Roast in the oven covered with a foil at low temperature until fully cooked.
That was it! Did you have a special meal for New Year's Day?
