Perfect salad for spring or summer weather and you can get pretty much your five a day in just one meal. Lots of colourful vegetables and jam packed with nutrients. Vitamin c, beta-carotene and vitamin E, heart healthy fats and cheese for protein. You can also add some chicken to this if you like. We've had it with and without.
Ingredients (serves 2):
1 tbs olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves crushed
1 red / yellow / orange pepper sliced
Half a large or one small red onion
Quarter butternut squash or
1 carrot cut into batons
1 small / medium sweet potato
Small bag of salad leaves
Handful of cherry tomatoes
Half a ripe avocado
125g of goats cheese, feta or cottage cheese
Optional: use less cheese and add sliced cooked chicken breast
Preheat oven to 200 degrees or 180 fan
Put pepper, onion, butternut squash, carrots and sweet potato in the oive oil and garlic into a large roasting tin. Shake about to cover everything in the garlic and oil.
Roast in the oven for approx 30 mins until the veg is tender.
Arrange salad leaves on a plate with the tomatoes and avocado.
Spoon on the cooked veg and top with crumbled cheese (and cooked chicken breast if using).
