Roasting it is one of the simplest ways to enjoy this vegetable. Sliced and sprinkled with your favourite spices. I like to keep it simple and simply add some pepper and garlic powder but feel free to add some flakes chilly, turmeric or even some nice curry powder.

The key always to get nicely caramelised and roasted vegetables is to leave some space between the pieces. That way the steam will not get stuck and it will allow the vegetables to caramelise.

Grab your favourite spices and let’s start!
