Chilli Roasted Greens - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

Who says veg has to be boring? Our Chilli Roasted Greens are coated in an exciting glaze made with a simple combination of store cupboard herbs and spices. With punchy ginger, lime and fiery chilli in the mix, there’s no shortage of flavour here.

To give broccoli florets, courgette slices, asparagus and green beans an aromatic makeover, we’ve used a surprising ingredient as part of our glaze: a plant-based coconut milk alternative. Not only does it keep things dairy-free and vegan, it also makes sure all of our veg is nicely coated, without ramping up the calories.

This recipe is fairly spicy to begin with. If you aren’t a fan of spice, you can always reduce the amount of fresh chilli by half. The fiery heat is what makes this side dish such a gorgeous accompaniment for a variety of mains, including chicken, duck, fish or tofu.
