Serves 4

2 potatoes , cut into 8 wedges
1 fennel bulb , cut into 8 wedges
1 red pepper , halved, deseeded and cut into 8 wedges
4 thyme sprigs
4 garlic cloves , unpeeled
1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
300.0ml hot chicken stock
4 bone-in pork loin chops

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the potatoes, fennel, pepper, thyme and garlic in a large roasting tin. Mix together the tomato paste and stock, then pour into the pan. Tightly cover with foil and cook for 30 mins. Take out of the oven and increase the temperature to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.

Remove the foil and place the pork in the roasting tin, nestling in between the veg. Season well and return to the oven for 15-20 mins more or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with the pan juices drizzled over.

Something really simple for a Saturday lunch. The key to the taste of this dish is the sun dried tomatoes paste. I couldn’t find any such paste so I did well the next best thing which is to get some sun dried tomatoes in olive oil and to pound it into a paste before adding it to the chicken stock.
