This is the handiest dinner recipe. All you need is a knife, chopping board and roasting tray so it’s perfect when you can’t face the washing up. Turmeric is a fabulous anti-inflammatory and has such amazing flavour, especially when paired with rosemary and lemon. There’s so much flavour in here and it takes so little effort- just the way I like it! When it’s ready, squeeze the garlic from their skins and eat them whole, they taste incredible and are great for you. Serve this with a crunchy salad or a side of quinoa.
