Keep it Simple, Stupid.

Sometimes, and maybe this is a condition of living in Dubai where you can literally get almost any foodstuff that exists (except black beans, there is a black bean shortage again), I forget that the easiest, simplest food is often the best tasting.

Winter Vegetable Bake
1 large parsnip- sliced
1 large carrot- sliced
1/2 butternut squash
1 small head cabbage- sliced
2 cups of brussels sprouts- whole
1 small sweet potato- chopped
1 small beet- chopped
1 red onion- chopped
4 cloves garlic- chopped
1 thumb of ginger- chopped
3 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper

Put it all in a bowl. Add the oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast in a shallow baking pan for about 35min or until vegetables begin to brown.

Broccoli & Brown Rice
1/2 large head broccoli- chopped into small florets and steamed.
1 cup brown rice
2 cups vegetable stock + more as needed
pepper flakes

Bring rice to a boil in stock, simmer until 1/2 the liquid is absorbed. Uncover and cook, stirring constantly until the remainder of the liquid is mostly absorbed. If the rice is not quite cooked, add another 1/4 cup stock, keep cooking and stirring until the rice is cooked to your taste. There should be some liquid remaining. Add broccoli, serve.
