Baked root veg rostis
These are so quick and easy, no unhealthy frying required, so delicious, and a great way to sneak in a few extra veggies
Pictured here, the rostis are used as a side dish to a lentil Chilli, but they could just as easily be served on their own with a dipping sauce, or topped with an oozy poached egg!
- 1 medium parsnip.
- 1 medium carrot.
- 1 fairly large potato.
- 1 finely chopped spring onion.
- 1 tablespoon oil (I used melted coconut oil).
- 1 tablespoon plain flour (I used spelt).
- pinch salt & pepper.
- half a tsp. smoked paprika.
- half a tsp. dried thyme.
- grate all of the vegetables, and place them into a clean tea towel or muslin cloth and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.
Once you are happy that the excess moisture is gone, place the grated vegetables into a bowl and add the flour, oil and spices.
Combine well and then shape into pattys.
Place the pattys onto a baking sheet, and cook in a medium oven @ 180,for around 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to turn golden.
Then turn up to 200, for the last 5 minutes to get some extra colour and caramelisation.
And there you have it!
sticky smoky Cauliflower steaks.
Why not give this simple, nutritious, vibrant and delicious meal a go?
Cauliflower is so wonderfully good for you,
High in fibre, Vitamin K and C, boosts cognitive function and eye health, contains Potassium and Phosphorus, has anti-inflammatory properties, high anti oxidant levels and is super versatile, a winning ingredient all round I'd say!
to make the Steaks:
Make a marinade as follows.
- 1 tbsp. white Miso paste
- 1 tbsp. tomato ketchup
- 2 tbsp. soy sauce (or Tamari for Gluten free)
- 2 tsp. smoked paprika
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon
Combine these ingredients together to make a paste.
Cut slabs / steaks of fresh Cauliflower and smother them liberally with the paste.
Now simply cook them in a hot oven - 200 C, or Gas mark 6.
for around 15 minutes.
I've served this with a simple Spinach and Carrot noodle salad, topped with toasted Almonds and Chilli slices.
You could serve them with anything really, great as a side for Fish, or bulk up with rice or potatoes, whatever takes your fancy, I hope you enjoy these as much as I do :-)
