Once You Cook Vegetables in This Way, You Won’t Ever Prepare in Other Way

Posted on

Forget limp, tasteless boiled broccoli and greasy fried vegetables. There’s a new culinary revolution sweeping the streets, and it’s all about vibrant, roasted vegetables bursting with flavor and health. And the best part? It’s so easy, even the most kitchen-averse among us can become veggie-roasting rockstars.

This recipe, once you taste it, will have you saying goodbye to boring greens and hello to a gastronomic adventure. It’s not just a meal; it’s a weight-loss secret weapon, a vitamin powerhouse, and a symphony of textures and tastes on your plate.


  • 1 head of cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 courgettes, diced
  • 4 sweet potatoes, cubed

Flavor Fusion:

  • Salt
  • Caraway seeds
  • Black pepper
  • Herbs de Provence
  • Baking bag (or aluminum foil)

For Creamy Sauce:

  • 100g sour cream
  • Pickled gherkins, chopped (to your taste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Fresh dill, chopped


  1. Start by getting your hands dirty (the good kind!). Finely shred the cabbage and sprinkle it with a generous pinch of salt. Massage it with your hands for a few minutes until it softens slightly. Let this leafy friend rest while you prep the other veggies.
  2. Wash and chop the rest of the vegetable crew: slice the carrot and onion, break the broccoli into florets, dice the courgettes, and chop the sweet potatoes into bite-sized cubes. Remember, uniformity is not key here! Embrace the natural shapes and sizes for a more textural adventure.
  3. Now comes the fun part – the flavor party! In a large bowl, gather your veggie squad. Sprinkle in the caraway seeds, black pepper, and Herbs de Provence, letting the aroma awaken your taste buds. Don’t forget the salt, the silent symphony conductor of flavor.
  4. Bag it Up or Foil it Out: You have two options here: the eco-friendly baking bag or the trusty aluminum foil pouch. If you choose the bag, simply toss all the seasoned veggies inside and tie it shut. For the foil option, lay out a large sheet of foil, spread the veggies in the center, and fold the edges up to create a sealed parcel.
  5. Oven Voyage: Preheat your oven to 200°C (390°F). Slide your veggie bag or foil parcel onto a baking sheet and let it embark on a 45 to 50 minute roasting journey. As the oven works its magic, the vegetables will caramelize, tenderize, and release their hidden depths of flavor.
  6. Creamy Sauce: While the veggies bask in the oven’s warmth, whip up the creamy dream sauce. Mix the sour cream with chopped gherkins (adjust the amount to your desired level of tanginess), minced garlic, and fresh dill. This sauce will be the perfect counterpoint to the roasted vegetables, adding a cool, creamy touch.
  7. The Grand Reveal: After 45-50 minutes, peek into the oven. Your veggies should be golden brown, slightly charred, and after 45-50 minutes, peek into the oven. Your vegetables will be golden brown, slightly charred, and have an appetizing aroma. Carefully remove the bag or foil and place on a plate. Top with the creamy and incredibly delicious sauce and enjoy!
