Made this with a few adjustments to suit the family's taste. Roasted the pumpkin cubes and onion wedges in some olive oil with a touch of paprika and some garlic powder. Cubed the baby beets and added some cucumber and fresh parsley with the sweet chilli sauce. Great colours, easy to put together and great taste. I too thought it tasted even better the next day as leftovers.
Simple,quick and even the kids really liked it. The leftovers taste better the next day too!
