I'm sure you're already aware I have a new obsession... my air fryer! I swear this thing is life changing when it comes to roasting veggies. You use hardly any oil and they cook in half the time (plus you don't have to wait for the oven to heat up either!).
So, I have taken to making a big batch of veggies. I keep them in the fridge for a few days and filter them through my meals throughout the week. Here are my 3 favourite things to do with them...
Sometimes after a long day, pasta is the quickest and most comforting meal to cook. I like to use brown rice pasta or buckwheat pasta for a nuttier taste (plus gluten-free bonus too!).
Simply cook your pasta, make an oil dressing in the pestle and mortar (such as garlic oil, basil leaves, lemon juice, pinch of sugar, salt and pepper) and stir through your pasta with your roasted veggies. I like to re-fry them in a big pan without any oil to warm them through, then add my oil dressing and finally my pasta. Big drizzle of balsamic glaze and some veggie friendly (or not of course) parmesan cheese over the top.
If you're like me and you like your carbs, this is the dish for you! I'm never happier than when I have a belly full of food and some good (complex) carbs (controversial I know!).
I love to make rice bowls all year round and with some roasted veggies, it just makes them even more filling.
Start with your rice base, I then like to add avocado, roasted veggies or beans, some salad leaves and then maybe a satay dressing (peanut butter, sweet chilli sauce, teriyaki sauce and water).
Then, you can always add some gut loving sauerkraut too! I only ever use the Loving Foods one as it is THE BEST!
Can you see the carb theme here? First off, I have to apologise as I do not have an image here but I'm sure you get the drift. Stuff it full of whatever you like! I love a good couple of wedges of sourdough bread, lambs lettuce, coleslaw and some roasted veggies! Sandwich heaven for me!
I hope you got a little bit of inspo here,
Thanks so much for reading,
