3 use a fine sieve to evely coat the veg with cinnamon and put into the oven to cook for 1hour or a until the veg is golden brown and soft.

4 meanwhile, put a little olive oil in a medium size saucepan over medium heat. When it’s hot, add zucchini and stir to coat. Do not brown as this may make the zucchini bitter. When it cooks down a little, add the grated ginger. Stir through, add the oregano sprigs and continue cooking for about 5-10 mins.
