A delicious Moroccan spiced roasted winter vegetables with maple syrup, chives and pomegranate seeds. It takes less than 30 minutes to prepare and makes a perfect side dish to compliment any meal. You can jazz up this basic recipe by adding some Feta and candied nuts.

  • 1 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp allspice powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic salt
  • 500 g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 500 g Cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Moroccan spice mix
  • 100 g Green peas, thawed
  • Seeds of 1/2 pomegranate
  • 1 bunch Chives, chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp Tomato pesto sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. To make the spice blend, just place everything in a bowl and mix.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Combine Brussels sprouts and cauliflower with olive oil, maple syrup and Moroccan spice mix in a mixing bowl. Toss until well combined. Spread the vegetables on a large baking tray.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl and add in pomegranate seeds, green peas, chopped chives, lemon zest and tomato pesto. Toss until well combined. Taste and season with more salt and pepper.
