Oven roasted mediterranean vegetables come together with chickpeas, tomato sauce and herbs to form a super simple yet satisfying plant-based dinner any night of the week.


1 eggplant, cubed
1 yellow and 1 green bell pepper, roughly chopped
1 medium red onion, roughly chopped
1½ cups butternut squash, cubed (or ½ a medium butternut squash)
1 large or 2 small zucchinis, sliced
3 cloves of garlic, smashed with skins on
1 tbsp oregano or dried mixed herbs (I used a combination of oregano, thyme, parsley and rosemary)
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1-2 tbsp coconut oil
1 can of organic tomato sauce or chopped tomatoes
1 can of chickpeas (or 1½ cups boiled chickpeas)
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
½ cup vegetable stock (optional)


  1. Preheat your panggangan to 220 C. Toss your prepped veggies in a large roasting pan with the coconut oil, some sea salt, black pepper and dried herbs of choice. Roast for 20-25 minutes until vegetables are soft and fragrant – keep in mind you don’t want them too overcooked as they will get a chance to cook some more on the stove.
  2. Once done, add your tomato sauce, roasted vegetables, and chickpeas to a large pot on medium heat. Season as needed with additional herbs and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. If you prefer a more liquid-y stew, add in the vegetable stock and stir through.
  3. Serve on a bed of baby spinach with some brown rice or quinoa (or both!) on the side.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
