Preparation time 10 mins
Cooking time 20 mins
- 4 cups cold roast vegies
- ½ red onion, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
- 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
- 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- Sea-salt flakes and freshly ground

- 250g chorizo, thickly sliced on diagonal
- ½ cup mixed salted roast nuts, coarsely chopped

STEP 1 Preheat oven to 220ºC fan-forced (240ºC conventional). Put vegies onto a large oven tray and add onion. Put vinegar, zest and mustard in a jar, add 2 Tbsp of the oil and secure lid. Shake well to combine. Season and drizzle half over the vegetables. Roast for 15 minutes or until warmed through. Squeeze lemon juice over the top.
