Cumin Roast Vegetables with Feta, Mint & Pomegranate


This ones almost too easy. Chop your veg. Bash your cumin. Chuck it all in a roasting tray. Give it a roast. Take it out the oven. Add your pomegranate, feta, mint, mixed leaves and a bit more cumin, and your done. So simple. So healthy. So affordable. Give it a go, there is no reason not to.



Pomegranate seeds. Everyone always has such a problem getting the seeds out the fruit! We have a trick to get around that. Halve the pomegranate. Hold your fingers over the cut side, and, with a spoon, bash the other side. The pink jewels will pop out, and your fingers will block all the other stuff!
