I'd like to think of this as the Australian version of a Thanksgiving roast.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1.5 hours
Makes: 4 servings


For the Roast

700g pork belly
300g capsicum
200g pumpkin
300g potato
200g broccoli
3 onions
3 carrots
Sea salt
Olive oil
Italian Herbs

For the Cauliflower Bake

250g cauliflower
100-200g cheese (variable)
250ml milk
2 tbsp flour
25g butter
50g mozzarrella cheese
2 tbsp breadcrumbs


Chop up all the vegetables - capsicum, pumpkin, potato, onion, broccoli, carrots into large chunks.

Use a toothpick to pierce through the onion so that they don't separate during cooking.

Place the pork belly on a wire rack. Use olive oil to cover the meat in a rich layer. Then, add sea salt on the top of the pork belly so that it seeps through.

Place the onion, pumpkin and potato pieces into a large tray, and put the pork belly on the wire rack into the tray. Sprinkle a thin coat of Italian herbs onto the tray.

Preheat the oven to about 220 degrees celsius.

Put the rest of the vegetables into a separate tray and drizzle with olive oil (both base and top). Mix in oil thoroughly.

Sprinkle some Italian herbs onto the vegetable tray.

Once the oven is well-preheated, place the tray of vegetables into one tier of the oven. Place the tray with the pork belly on the top tier of the oven.

Let it cook for about an hour, checking the vegetable tray every 20 minutes and flipping the vegetables for better cooking.

Cook the pork belly till the top starts 'crackling', turns solid (hard).

For the cauliflower bake, first chop up the cauliflower into large chunks.

Next, steam the cauliflower till it goes soft. Place it into a glass (oven-friendly) dish.

In a saucepan, add milk, flour and butter. Mix the ingredients together until they come to a boil.

Once the mixture becomes smooth and thick, remove from heat.

Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the cauliflower. Pour the mixture over the cheesy cauliflower. Add the rest of the cheese and a handful of breadcrumbs to top the dish off.

Once the roast has been cooked, put the cauliflower dish in the oven for about 20 minutes until the cheese looks golden brown.
