The thought of cooking multiple dishes for a family dinner can be daunting, with a pile of dishes already appearing before you have even finished prepping the first meal.
Here is where vegetable bakes are a great time- and dish-saving alternative. Let’s admit it – no one enjoys washing a mountain of dishes at the end of a long day. As a one-dish, pop-into-the-oven meal, vegetable bakes are packed with nutrition and flavour. Once you have popped it in the oven you can get back to what matters – spending time with your loved ones.
Here are our favourite vegetable oven bakes that are perfect for winter and as a meat-free Monday alternative.
