Healthy Comfort Food

IMG_7920

I think we all crave some comfort food once in a while and admittedly the weekend is usually the time I cave and have a little binge. My Mam’s sunday roast is one meal I could eat when wanting to warm the cockles of my heart, however it certainly isn’t the healthiest of dinners to consume.

Okay, it didn’t have the dinner plate sized yorkshire puddings or cheese covered cauliflower – but it still hit the spot pretty well. I love all vegetables especially when roasted so, I improvised and created a roast vegetable feast with roast chicken thigh and a side of greens.

I’m not too sure how to write a method for this dish as I pretty much just threw a load of vegetables  (carrots, red onion, new potatoes, courgette and sweet potato) into a baking tray drizzled with olive oil seasoned with salt and pepper and cracked a bulb of garlic (unpeeled) amongst the vegetables. I then added the seasoned chicken thighs, with dried mixed herbs rubbed into the skin on top of the vegetables and popped in the oven and roast for 50-60 minutes at 180C.

During the last 10 minutes of roasting add a drizzle of honey onto the carrots and dried mixed herbs onto the the new potatoes. Serve with your favourite greens, I used chopped spring cabbage and peas. And voila, an easy and quick healthy sunday roast dinner. Enjoy! Fx
