In this recipe Italian flavours are added to mushrooms to make a delicious side dish with a braai or serve them as a vegetarian meal – perfect for this time of year. The oil is seasoned with lemon and herbs and serves a double purpose to partly brush over the mushrooms and season the tomatoes with the rest. All of this is topped with cheese and roasted together – yum!
Veggies can brighten up any meal and this combination of brinjal, baby marrows, red pepper, tomatoes and onions is not only colourful but delicious too. The topping of cheese, herbs and lemon rind, is much healthier than a rich cream based sauce, often used for side dishes like a potato bake. This side dish is bound to become the favourite at your next braai.
