The roasted flavour of two everyday ingredients combined with cumin makes this a special side dish. A low-carb veggie to fill your plate with.

1. Preheat the oven to 200 ˚C. Place veggies in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients, except the mint or parsley.
2. Toss to coat the veggies with the seasonings and place in a large oven dish.
3. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until just cooked. Stir in fresh herbs and serve hot or at room temperature.
Serve as a green veggie with pan-fried, grilled or roasted fish, chicken or meat of your choice. Enjoy a big portion of this side and add a moderate portion of another starchy side dish. Choose any of the recipes from the side dish section.

Tips:
1. Add chickpeas to the veggies for a more filling side dish.
2. Chilli or other seasonings like paprika or turmeric can be added to the veggies before roasting.
