cooks notes:

  • All salt used in our recipes is Murray River Salt Flakes, if using granular salt, cut down amounts accordingly.
  • VERY IMPORTANT – Roast vegetables in single layer. If they are piled on top of one another, they will steam and not roast.
  • The brown caramelized tips of the vegetable chunks add to the flavour.
  • If pre-preparing salad, store un-dressed roasted vegetables and rocket separately in fridge.
  • Remove vegetables from fridge to come to room temperature before adding leaves, dressing and consuming.
  • Serve the vegetables, hot as an accompaniment to any roast (without the rocket or dressing).
  • Add diced eggplant and carrot to this salad if liked.
  • If liked, leave skin on pumpkin which will prevent it from becoming mashed.
