Every time I go to a Farmers Market I wonder why I don’t go every week. Yesterday was the perfect day for it. The sun was shining, the air was fresh, I had a heap of small change and no other plans until Noon. I gathered up my shopping bags and bribed my friend with promises of soy cappuccino and puppies, and we headed on down to get amongst it.
I need to prove myself to the Gardening Gods before I can be trusted with innocent plants like this, but how gorgeous are they?
The bounty! Fresh, crunchy and delicious.
And my favourite way to enjoy it: Easy Roast Vegetable & Pepita Salad with Balsamic Dressing.
Sometimes the simple things are the best.
- Pre-heat oven to 180C.
- Chop vegetables (potato, sweet potato, red onion, baby carrot, capsicum, etc) into small pieces and place in a large baking dish. Toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with pepitas and roast for about 45 minutes.
- Assemble salad vegetables (lettuce, cucumber, snow peas, grape tomatoes, mushroom, etc) on plates.
- Top with roasted vegetables and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
- Enjoy! xx
