There are heaps of side salads out there, but when it comes to the cooler months, side vegies can be just as delicious! This eggplant & pumpkin roast is easy!
- 1 kg butternut pumpkin, peeled
- 2 medium eggplants (700g), trimmed
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
- 2 tbsp pepitas
- ½ cup fresh mint leaves
- ½ cup Greek yoghurt
- 1 tbsp harissa spice blend
- Cut pumpkin into 1cm-thick slices. Cut in half crossways. Cut eggplant lengthways into 3cm-thick wedges.
- Toss pumpkin and eggplant in a large bowl with oil until coated. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to two large oven trays lined with baking paper.
- Cook in a hot oven (200C) for about 30 minutes, or until tender.
- Meanwhile, make spiced yoghurt. Combine yoghurt and seasoning in a small jug.
- Serve pumpkin and eggplant on a plate. Drizzle over spiced yoghurt. Sprinkle with pine nuts, pepitas and mint.
As an alternative, replace pumpkin with sweet potato, and eggplant with zucchini.
