A great alternative to a Greek salad. The large caper berries provide a salty and tangy contrast to the sweetness of the roasted vegetables. This is good alongside white fish.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 fennel bulb, cut into bite-sized pieces, (80g)
1 large red onion, cut into bite-sized pieces, (160g)
160g chestnut mushrooms, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 courgette, cut into bite-sized pieces, (160g)
1/2 red pepper, cut into bite-sized pieces, (80g)
2 tablespoons olive oil
a few thyme leaves
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
80g black and green olives, halved
12 large caper berries
1 unwaxed lemon, finely grated zest and juiced
handful basil leaves
4 tablespoons roughly chopped parsley leaves
80g wild rice
handful cherry tomatoes, halved
4 marinated artichoke hearts, cut into bite-sized pieces

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Place the fennel, onion, mushrooms, courgette and red pepper in a roasting tray, drizzle with the oil, sprinkle on the thyme, salt and pepper and roast for about 45 minutes until all the vegetables are cooked. Stir halfway through.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the rice according to packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  4. When the vegetables are cooked, mix in the tomatoes, artichokes, olives, caper berries and lemon zest. Now mix these with the rice and stir in the lemon juice and herbs.
  5. Serve warm or cold.
