Recipe: Roasted Vegetables with Smoked Bacon
Questions: How do you make vegetables better? Roast em! And how do you make roast vegetables better? Add bacon! This is such a delicious side dish. Infact, i can get through a whole bowl of this as a main course, with a little yoghurt and a rocket salad on the side. It's such a beautiful combination of vegetables, made even better with the little nuggets of smoky bacon. I love roasted fennel as well, it makes me realise I ought to eat fennel more often!
