Oven Roast Vegetable Salad with Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar

Ingredients

  • 3 -4 red capsicum
  • 4 small beetroot or 2 eggplant
  • salt
  • a pinch or two of dried sweet basil
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 butternut pumpkin
  • 6 -8 roma tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  • 10 small picking onions, peeled and left whole
  • 2 heads garlic, separated into cloves and peeled
  • 15-20 snow peas
  • 1-2 tablespoons caramelised balsamic vinegar
  • 4-5 tablespoons olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • rock salt

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. Halve the capsicum, remove and discard the seeds. Place in a baking tray, cut side down, and roast until the skins are blistered. Remove from the oven, cover with a tea-towel to steam a little so that skins can be easily peeled off. Cut into chunky pieces and set aside.
  • Turn the oven down to 180°C. Place the whole beetroot on an oiled oven tray and roast for 1 hour or until tender. Peel when cooked.
  • If using eggplant, slice and place on a lightly oiled oven tray. Sprinkle with salt and basil. Drizzle a little oil over the top and roast in the oven until browned and softened, about 40 minutes. (The smell when this comes from the oven is wonderful.)
  • Peel and cut the pumpkin into small chunks and place in another baking dish with the tomatoes, onions and garlic. Drizzle a little oil over the top and roast for about 40minutes so that the vegetables are slightly browned and soft but not too collapsed.
  • Meanwhile, quickly steam the snow peas so that they are cooked but still crisp.
  • To serve, pile all the vegetables in a large serving bowl, drizzle with vinegar and oil, and grind some black pepper and rock salt over the top. Serve Warm.
