roasted root vegetables with basil oil and cooling yoghurt

Summer a thing of the past, the weather has cooled, and the chestnuts are roasting away in the plazas. This recipe couldn’t be easier. It is simple with deep roasted, nutty flavours to tender root vegetables. This dish celebrates our love of seasonal nuts made into the most velvety, smooth oil which brings together the culmination of seasonal vegetables with nuts.

A dish of roasted root vegetables can always be spiced up with delicious nutty flavours. A gentle mix of Azada’s Olive Oil & basil with fragrant whole cardamoms, cloves and cinnamon sticks can do wonders to the most simplest of ingredients.
