Baked vegetables with dates and feta
A hearty dish of baked vegetables, perfectly combined with dates, balsamic vinegar and feta, providing a flavoursome accompaniment to any main.
- Preheat oven to 200°C.
- Wrap beetroot in foil and bake for 45 minutes.
- Put the onions, carrots, eggplant, cauliflower and pumpkin in a large wide shallow baking dish. Add oil and toss so the oil lightly coats the vegetables. Bake for 35 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Remove from the oven, peel beetroot and cut into chunks. Place the vegetables in a large serving bowl. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and toss lightly.
- Place dates and feta on top, sprinkle with sesame seeds and coriander.
- Instead of coriander try other herbs like parsley to change the flavour and add variety to this delicious dish.
