Easy veggie traybake anyone?

May 13, 2021

Who wants a tasty, healthy meal that takes little effort?  To mark National Vegetarian Week here’s an easy vegetarian recipe that is suitable for those living with type 2 diabetes and pretty much anyone else!

Roasted vegetable traybake with chickpeas and halloumi

Chop a butternut squash, a yellow pepper, a large courgette and 2 medium onions into even sized pieces and place in a large roasting tin. 

Mix together 2 tablespoons of tomato puree, 3 tablespoon of light olive oil, the juice of a lime, a couple of cloves of garlic (crushed), 1 teaspoon of ground cumin and 1-2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper or paprika (to taste).  Pour over the vegetables and mix well.  Add a little extra olive oil if needed to coat the vegetables.

Place in the oven (200oC) for around 40 minutes stiring halfway through.  Remove from the oven and stir in a jar of green olives (drained) and a drained tin of chickpeas.  Top with sliced halloumi and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes.

Play around with other veggies to suit your taste: aubergine, cherry tomatoes and sweet potatoes all work well as does adding fresh herbs such as parsley or coriander. Clear plates all round with minimal washing up!
