You know those days when it’s starting to get cooler outside and you want something to warm you up but without being too heaving?
Well I think I just came up with the answer for this

I have decided to stop eating meat for a while because lately everytime I eat it I feel really quite sick for around the next 24hrs so I thought I would eat more vegetables for a while and see if I feel any better.

So today I kind of felt like doing a potato bake. But I kind of wanted to do something a little bit healthier then just your regular potato bake so I decided to add cauliflower, brocolli and brussel sprouts and create a bit of a cruciferous party!
And I have to say I am quite pleased with him it turned out.
Now I don’t think there is anything that I would change from what I did tosay for this recipe.
So here it is I will give it to you.
