I will usually 'theme' our salads during the week, so it's different most days.  See Serving Suggestions/Additional Notes below for more....


Roasting Vegetables for the lunch box


My favourites vegetables to roast at the moment are pumpkin, capsicum, eggplant* and beetroot**.  

To roast vegetables:  

1.  Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  

2.  Wash and slice vegetables.

3.  Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a large baking tray.  

4.  Brush sparingly with olive oil and bake for approximately 40 mins.

5.  Allow to cool.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Notes:  

* If roasting eggplant, slice and sprinkle with salt.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel.  Then continue from step 3 above.

** If roasting beetroot, remove top and tail and wrap in aluminium foil with 2 tsp water.  Place in oven at 180 degrees celsius for 1 hour.  Allow to cool and then the skin will slip easily from the beetroot.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
