Roasted root vegetables with a killer dressing and Caponata with a twist

I thought I'd share my two favourite vegetarian recipes.  These are both by Yotam Ottolenghi who performs alchemy with vegetables.  In fact a miracle came to pass.  My partner who has hated aubergine all his life is now a fan!

These two recipes have become a staple on my weekly menus, they're both quick and easy to prepare and can be eaten on their own or as a side dish.  I never cease to be amazed at how a wonderful dressing, or the addition of spices, can turn a humble vegetable from boring to a party in the mouth.

Roasted Parsnips and Sweet Potatoes with a killer dressing - recipe here.

Caponata with a twist - recipe here.  The twist is the addition of harissa paste.  I however, used harissa spice which works brilliantly.
