Prebiotic Tray Bake with Gut-Loving Garlic Tahini Drizzle

This prebiotic bake is pimped up with a tangy garlic and tahini dressing that has a not-so-secret ingredient...Love Your Gut powder.

Roasting these prebiotic-rich veggies is a great way to cheer up any older veggies that may have been left in the refrigerator a little too long! The vegetables all cook at different speeds – so some are crunchier than others – which really is the beauty of this dish.

Through consuming real, gut-friendly foods, including prebiotics, probiotics, lots of veggies, fruit and quality sources of protein and good carbs, you can achieve a fully functioning engine room.

Serves 4


  • 200 g Jerusalem artichokes
  • 1 jicama, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 200 g parsnips, peeled and quartered lengthways
  • 300 g heirloom or Dutch (baby) carrots, trimmed
  • 2 leeks cut into 2 cm rounds
  • 2 medium red (Spanish) onions, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 12 asparagus spears, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Garlic tahini drizzle

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Celtic sea salt, to taste
  • 70 g sesame tahini
  • 1 tablespoon Love Your Gut powder
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or more, to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons water
  • Aleppo pepper or red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
  2. To prepare the artichokes, scrub well but don't peel unless the skin seems too rough. Cut in half lengthwise and immediately rub the cut surface with half a lemon to stop it browning.
  3. Place all the prepared vegetables, except the asparagus, in a single layer, on a lined roasting tray (or two). You don’t want the vegetables to crowd, as they won’t roast and crisp up. Drizzle with oil and rub to coat.
  4. Roast for 25 minutes, turning the vegetables once, and then take out and add the asparagus. Roast for a further 5 minutes or until the asparagus is just cooked and all the vegetables are golden around the edges.
  5. Meanwhile, to make the garlic tahini drizzle, place the garlic and a pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle and mash to a purée. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in the tahini. Add the lemon juice, Love Your Gut powder and a little bit of the water, whisking continuously, adding a little more water each time until the sauce reaches the consistency of thick cream (or runny yoghurt). Taste and adjust seasoning.
  6. Arrange the roasted vegetables on a serving platter and pour over garlic tahini drizzle.
