Sometimes the easiest dishes taste the best! I personally like roasted veggies with loads of garlic and spices accompanied by homemade bread, rice or wholegrain pasta. For the preparation I used white wine, since it adds a delicious flavor to the veggies. In case you don’t want to use alcohol, you can substitute the wine with fresh lemon juice.
I used roasted and salted pumpkin seeds as my topping. They taste delicious and add some extra minerals to the mix!
If you are pretty short on time or it is just not the right season, use frozen veggies!
Start with cutting the beans. Don‘t use the endings! Boil them in slightly salted water for around ten minutes. Peel the garlic. Put the whole cloves in a pan with olive oil and start frying them. After one minute add the bayleaf. Keep frying for another minute. Cut the piri piri in small pieces and add it to the mix. Add beans and green peas and keep frying until the veggies look slightly toasted. Add white wine and stir the veggies. Take the pan off the flame and season the fried beans and peas with salt, pepper and fresh parsley!
