Adobo Roasted Vegetables with Chipotle-Tahini Sauce

These roasted vegetables are so simple to make. Only a few ingredients transform this dish into something really special. The ancho chilli seasoning gives a lovely touch that complements the sweetness of the roasted vegetables. The chipotle-tahini yoghurt brings everything together with its smoky and nutty flavour. 


Adobo Roasted Vegetables

-1 sweet potato

-1 small red onion

-½ large aubergine

-2 tbsp olive oil

-Adobo Seasoning to taste

1 Set your oven to 200°C

2 Cut the sweet potato and aubergine into pieces roughly the same size. Chop the red onion in quarters.

3 Add the vegetables to a large baking tray and drizzle over the olive oil and a good shake of the Adobo Seasoning. Toss the vegetables around until they are evenly coated. The vegetables don’t need to be overly drenched in oil or seasoning, just evenly distributed. 

4 Roast the vegetables for anything between 25-35 minutes. Toss them halfway so they roast evenly. 

Chipotle-Tahini Yoghurt

-3 tbsp Greek yoghurt

-1 tbsp tahini paste

-1 tbsp water

-2 chipotle peppers La Costeña

-2 tbsp lemon juice


1 In a bowl, mix the tahini paste and the water. Add the yoghurt and mix them well. 

2 Finely chop the chipotle peppers until they are almost a paste. You can remove the seeds from the peppers if you don’t want the sauce to be too spicy. 

3 Add the chipotles to the yoghurt along with the lemon juice and about a tsp of salt. Mix well and adjust the ingredients to your taste. 

To Serve

-Black rice

-Fresh coriander

-Pomegranate seeds

-Fresh coriander

1 Serve the roasted vegetables with plain black rice and a good serving of chipotle-tahini yoghurt. Dress with fresh coriander and add pomegranate seeds. 


- Black rice has such a fantastic texture and nutty flavour that goes perfectly well here. In this case, the vegetables and the yoghurt sauce are so flavourful that the rice is the perfect complement. 
- The Adobo Seasoning’s main ingredient is ancho chilli which has a beautiful fruity flavour. The seasoning also has garlic powder and salt so this product has all the flavour you need to season your vegetables. 
- The chipotle-tahini yoghurt is a bomb of flavour. It brings a tangy, smoky and cool element to the vegetables and brings everything together with the rice.
- The pomegranate seeds bring a burst of sweetness to this dish making the experience an explosion of flavours and textures for such a simple and easy meal.
