  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled
  • 1/4 butternut pumpkin, peeled
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 cup of baby spinach

  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 cubes of Meredith marinated goats cheese (hands down the best goats cheese you will try!)
  • Caramelised balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • clove garlic, crushed


  1. Heat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Cut all vegetables into a large dice and toss in a bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic. Place in a lined baking tray and cook for 15-20 mins.
  3. In a separate bowl place the cooked quinoa, spinach and rocket, add cooked vegetables, 1 cube of the goats cheese and use some of the oil from the marinated goats cheese and a little drizzle of the caramelised balsamic dressing.
