Step one: check your fridge and freezer and identify the vegetables you have. Step two: chop them up, place on a baking paper and roast until they stop being crunchy. Pair them with meat or fish, mushrooms, beans or tofu or eat on their own with a dip. They will go well with a yogurt sauce, miso paste or mustard. No oil necessary! If you like it though you can add it in just before serving along with salt and pepper.
