In the last couple of weeks I start making lots of baked vegetables. I eat them fresh and I also bake them with meat or without it. I like beetroot because is sweet and is also very healthy. After winter I feel the need of eating lots of vegetables and greens.
This is a vegetarian recipe and is perfect in the summer or winter.
- 1 leek
- 2 red onions
- 1 red pepper
- 1 beetroot
- Olive oil
- Red chili powder
Preheat oven to 220°C/ (200°C for fan assisted ovens). Cut the onions, beetroot, red pepper and the leek in 1-2 cm slices. At the bottom put the green parts of the leek and on top arrange the slices so it looks good in the tray.
Add olive oil and spices on top of it and bake them with the tray covered till the vegetables are done. I like them a little bit “Al dente”. Cook the rice separate anyway you like it.
Take the vegetables out of the oven and mix them with the cooked rice. Put them back in the tray and put it in the oven for another 5 – 10 minutes. You can serve it hot or cold.
