| jazz up your dinner with a quick but fancy recipe |
‘What to eat for dinner’ is probably one of the most asked or thought about questions out there. If you’re at home you can probably spend all day making an amazing bolognese or curry, but coming home from work you may feel more like a 10 minute pizza.
Now, this is an in-between; you can prep this quickly and leave it to cook whilst you shower, check blogs, or maybe do some exercise. It’s also super yummy, healthy, very fancy for mid-week dinner and will make you say ‘mmmmmmm’ until the cows come home (except I have no cows, only baking ingredients and lots of nail polish)
Ready to get cooking?
(prep time : 20 minutes cooking time : 40-60 minutes)
(serves 2) 2 Ripe Peaches | 1 1/2 Sweet Potatoes | 2 Small Onions | 2 Small Pieces of Beetroot (not in vinegar) | Handful of Fine Beans
A Small Head of Brocolli | 1 Small Spring Onion | 1 Tbsp Ginger Powder | 3 Tsps Black Pepper | 1/2 Cup of Peas |
1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 Celcius. Line your tray with tin foil, and then create a separate section for the peaches. Chop your potatoes into chunky cubes and set aside in one bowl. Once they are all chopped, sprinkle and cover in ginger powder.
2. Wash and half your peaches, discarding the stones. Add the potatoes and onions to one section of the roasting tray with some oil, and the peaches to a separate section with some coconut oil. Leave to roast for 40-50 minutes.
3. Once the juice of the peaches is flowing, and everything looks lovely and roasted, get a griddle pan and heat it up on the highest setting. Take your peaches, sprinkle with black pepper and put them flat on the pan to grill and blacken.
4. Whilst the peaches grill, prepare your veg! Steam the broccoli and beans, boiling the peas too. Chop up the beetroot into small chunks and add in the spring onions and a splash of balsamic vinegar.
5. Now it’s time to serve! Layer it all up, and allow your glorious peaches to take standing place. If you have some peach juice from the roasting, drizzle the good stuff all over the veg and allow the sweet taste enhance all the flavour.
This meal was immense; it’s amazing how adding some fruit and being creative with grilling and roasting can completely switch up a meal. The flavour of the pepper, peach and beetroot together is so delicious, and if you’re into your cheese some feta would taste awesome here too. It’s reasonably quick and allows you time to prepare and do other things rather than standing at a stove all evening with the hangry pangs, so what’s not to love?!
What do you think about peaches for dinner? Will you be cooking this up? Let me know what fruit you bake and cook with often too.
Lots of Love,
