We eat with our eyes first and it’s easy to make vegetables look incredibly sexy. Give yourself permission to use your artistic license and let your imagination run wild! Creating beautiful veggie platters are not only functional, making meals easier to serve, but they also make for an awesome table centre-piece, guaranteed to up the wicked factor, on visuals and taste.
When you apply a variety of veg with different cuts, shapes, colors, textures and cooking methods the combinations are endless.
For each board, add everything to a parchment-lined baking sheet and pop in the oven on 200c/400f for 15 minutes to finish before serving. This also makes for a good presentation as is while still an oven pan, call me crazy or lazy but it works great! And it makes for very easy cleanup, bonus!
