Three-ingredient Veggie Lunch

If you think your little ones won't eat carrots, think again. A little seasoning goes a long way with the help of an oven, which caramelises carrots and turns them into golden batons of joy. Served alongside a veggie favourite of mine: purple sprouting broccoli, and a simply boiled egg for a no-fuss high protein element, this meal is both healthy and relatively quick to whip up.



Preparation Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients
2 eggs
2 carrots
Handful of purple sprouting broccoli
Tblsp balsamic vinegar
Half tsp black pepper
Glug of oil



Method
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.

Peel and chop the carrots to size.



Place the carrots and broccoli in a sieve and wash thoroughly.



Place the eggs in a saucepan.



Place the sieve of vegetables on top of the saucepan and cover with a lid for 10 minutes.



Remove the carrots and place in a baking tray with oil and place in the oven for 10 minutes.



Remove the carrots and season with pepper, place back in the oven for a further 20 minutes.



5 minutes before the carrots are cooked, drizzle over the balsamic vinegar and place back in the oven, with the heat turned to 220 degrees.

Plate up.



I like to put this in a jar too, when my niece and nephew are hungry, and we're in a hurry - it transports well and isn't anywhere near as messy as yogurt, or soup (nightmare in the car!)
