Surplus Veg

Even though we are nearing the end of July, the sun has not done much shining, whilst it is relatively early in the growing season yet we have more than enough home grown vegetables to warrant a real treat of mediterranean style rustic roast vegetables (with a sneaky little sweetcorn starter while we are waiting).

Roughly chopped onion, courgette, tomato and garlic with rosemary, sea salt, ground black pepper and a good slug of extra virgin olive oil and a splash of good quality balsamic.

40mins at 200 degrees. Mmmm. Could only be bettered if done in a wood fired oven!
