Elana has also recently started growing fresh herbs on her windowsill to make life easier. With her busy schedule she doesn't have time to shop for fresh ones, she just grows and picks them.

Ingredients / Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp.


Pre-heat your oven at around 180 degrees. Chop up everything (or don't) and place it into an oven dish, drizzle with some olive oil, salt and pepper, and, in Elana's case, also some beef spice. Place it in the oven and literally forget about it while you are finishing emails on your laptop or packing school bags for the next day. 

After 35-40 minutes take your hot salad out of the oven, add more spice for taste, and chop up some fresh herbs into your mix. This can either be a meal or side dish to any protein, or vegan sausage if you want to go meat-free.
