Roasted Herbed Vegetables

  • Vegetable Kebabs
  • Simple, with a honey and mustard marinade.
  • The marinade is based on olive oil, which keeps the vegetables moist and juicy.
  • Can be barbecued, grilled or roasted.
  • These flavours can be used for meat too.

Honey

2-3 teaspoons. A runny, mild honey will work best (such as the English clear honey). Used correctly, honey will help the vegetables to caramelise, without adding too much sweetness.

Mustard Powder 50g (Hampshire Foods)

1-2 teaspoons of mustard powder. This should be noticeable, but not overpowering.

Hampshire Foods Mixed Herbs 50g

1 level teaspoonful. These mixed herbs consist of basil, marjoram, oregano, parsley, sage and thyme.

Tomato Puree Double Concentrate, Organic 130g (Essential)

1 tablespoon of tomato puree. This helps to offset the sweetness of the honey.

Crushed Chillies

A sprinkling of chilli flakes according to taste.

Cracked Black Peppercorn (Coarse Ground)

Around half a teaspoon of cracked black pepper.

Olive Oil

Half a cup of olive oil is used in this recipe, as we are creating a marinade to bathe the vegetables in. There is no need to use an expensive one, as most of the flavour comes from the herbs, spices and honey.
