vegan gluten free traybake

Middle Eastern inspired vegan, gluten free, traybake. Roasted Carrot, Courgette & Quinoa with Pistachio & Mint

This is a one tin, chuck it in the oven, batch cook, nutritious, gluten free and vegan dish. It’s really, really tasty too.

If you’ve been following Nom Wholefoods for a while you know that I never make a recipe exactly how it’s written. It depends what’s in the fridge, who is eating it and what my budget is that week.

Of course, it won’t taste the same as the intended chef wrote it but it makes every meal an experiment!

I would be disappointed if you didn’t adapt my recipes to suit your needs and budget!

This is one you can really play around with. I originally took this vegan, glute free, traybake recipe from The Roasting Tin Dinner Around the World by Rukmini Iyer. It has most of the same elements!

I also made it much larger so it would last two family meals.

Cooking times will vary on your oven and exactly what goes into your tin.

Serves 6



  • Preheat the oven to 80°C fan/200°C/gas 6.
