Baked Beets (and other veggies)
Here is my lunch for today - no I didn't nearly spill it everywhere, I just turned the camera sideways. I think it makes it look a bit 'cultured' :-)
This post can't be long as I'm busy studying for my university exams, of which I have five. One is an hour, one is an hour and a half, two are two hours and one is three hours. I'm rather dreading the three hour one...
Anyway, I won't give you a recipe for lunch because there isn't one - basically, chop as much beet as you would like into chunks, wrap in foil (or not) and place in an oven at 200C. After about 10 mins add some chunks of sweet potato (lots of them, if you love it like I do!) and leave for around 35 or 40 mins. Then put some asparagus in with the potato and beets. In a small bowl combine about 1.5 tbsp fresh orange juice with about 1 tsp maple syrup and a splash (eg about 1/4 tsp) of balsamic vinegar and whisk it together. When the asparagus has had about 10 mins in the oven, take all the veggies out and arrange decoratively on a plate (see photo) and spoon dressing over the top. Sprinkle with ground nutmeg, take a fancy photo, and enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by everyone!
