Roasted Vegetables & Vegan Quark with Herbs

You can’t go wrong with roasted vegetables. No matter if you’re time is limited but you still want to eat healthy, if you need a side for hearty dishes like this BBQ glazed lentil loaf or if you just want to make use of leftovers before going out of town.

What’s the best way to eat roasted veggies, you ask? Exactly, with a quark dip with herbs. I’m sure you can buy ready-made vegan quark by now (in Germany, that is) but you can also make it from scratch quickly with few ingredients.

Instructions
Roasted Veggies
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). 

  2. (1) Slice veggies (potato slices should be quite thin) and layer in a baking dish. Sprinkle with rosemary and thyme. Combine veggie stock with minced garlic and pour over vegetables. Place in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes, tossing the veggies 20 minutes into baking time.

  3. (2) Slice veggies (potato slices should be quite thin). Combine oil with garlic and herbs and evenly coat vegetables with oil and seasoning. Place vegetables in one even layer onto baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes, flipping the veggies 40 minutes into baking time. 

Tofu “Quark” with Herbs
  1. Mix all the ingredients, except for salt & pepper, together with the help of a food processor/ hand mixer/ immersion blender. Then add salt & pepper to taste. Adjust consistency to your liking, e.g. by adding more oil or cream. 

  2. Allow to marinade in the fridge for 20 minutes. 

Recipe Notes
  • Two ways to roast vegetables: (1) with oil or fat reduced (2) with veggie stock, which is more like steaming them in the oven
