For your daily recommended nutritional intake this recipe is way up there.
One portion gives you 195% of your recommended daily vitamin C recommendation and over half of your dietary fibre requirements!
This recipe fits perfectly as part the Mediterranean Diet, which I base a lot of my recipes on.
We try to eat as many different vegetables as possible plus lean white meat, fish, nuts and seeds weekly.
Still keeping with our 80/20 rule though and enjoying ourselves with a pudding at the weekend.
This healthy selection of vegetables helps us to keep our diet principles intact.
Plus, each individual veggie ingredient brings its own health benefits such as the cholesterol lowering properties of the aubergine. Or the fact courgettes contain no saturated fats.

NOM! I would totally eat this entire recipe, I kid you not! I am a BIG EATER especially when it comes to my veggies!!
We'd be having a fight over who would get to eat the last few mouthfuls then GiGi! 🙂
Not quite as messy as your 10 signs you're a sugar addict though, lol! Loved that! 😀
I LOVE CHANGE....when it's not mine 🙂
so Id be the one person a fan of the all at once!
Ha ha, I like your honesty Carla!
Time is a factor for me too. Whilst I could probably make all the blog changes I wanted over a few weeks, I don't have the time to do them all at once. Plus I think I'd maybe mess up and accidentally delete my site or something like that if everything was done at once. 😉
So, for me it's small baby steps, small changes. 🙂
But all heading in the right direction though........
OMG I want to dive face first into those roasted veggie photos! I love roasted veggies more than life! Good for you with the course. I'm an eternal student. I wish I could afford to go to school for the rest of my life and I couldn't wait to finish university all those years ago! You know I love your blog, but it's always good to keep learning!
Hee hee! And this is one big serving of deliciousness Erin, as I said to GiGi below I think there would be a lot of fighting over it! 🙂
Like you, I would quite happily spend my time just learning and learning. I suppose really we're always going to be students aren't we?
The course I started last night was sooooo interesting all about SEO and getting yourself ranked well in the google search rankings, using keywords etc. I'm totally happy to share with you what I learn when we meet up next. Which I will get back to you with dates for soon! 😀
Susie @ SuzLyfe
OObviously I like this. It's like a ratatouille meeting a tomato sauce but with slightly different flavors. YUM
Ooh I love ratatouille Suz! And this vegetable dish would go so well with some Freekeh too wouldn't it? 😀
Julie @ Running in a Skirt
Yum!!! I love the spices in this! So many good veggies too! I recently revamped my blog all at once after three years of making small changes, it was time for a redo! WOW--- so much work!
Hi Julie, thanks so much for your comment. 🙂
Yeah, Lynne and I found that the addition of the chilli (just a little and not too much) really brought out more of the flavour of the veggies. I would have happily added more than what's in the recipe details, but Lynne advised me not to. And she (as usual) was right with her advice, otherwise I might have obliterated the unique taste from the veggies.
I feel like I should put up a "Work in Progress" banner sometimes for all the changes I want to make on my blog. I can understand you saying "so much work", my "redo" list grows on a daily basis!

I adore roast veggies - but I don't usually simmer them with tomatoes and chickpeas - I so so need to try doing that next time! I don't think I would change any of the veggies - ooh - maybe add in some beets 😉
Hope you and Lynn have a wonderful weekend! And looking forward to hearing how that Online Xcellence class is going...
I think that adding in the beets would give this dish a lovely richer red colour, as well as even more delicious flavour. I like your idea very much!
Have a great weekend yourself too Shashi, I'll update on the blog weekly about the course! 😀
