2 leeks whole (clean well)

2 potatoes peeled and thickly sliced

2 carrots peeled, break in half if large

2 to 3 baby bok choy

½ head of red cabbage

Soy sauce

Sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a rectangular baking pan Layer vegetables in the pan, but don’t overcrowd.

Dribble olive oil lightly over the vegetables. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and red chili powder. Pour 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve with a sprinkling of soy sauce and sesame seeds. This dish serves two or three people so adjust accordingly and cook a bit longer if you add a lot more vegetables.
