Roasted Winter Vegetables


Roasted winter vegetables recipe …veggies never tasted so good!

One of our favorite ways to eat our veggies in the winter is roasted. It is actually our favorite way to eat them any time of year but especially in the winter. This recipe was given to me by a friend who caters large events. Her recipe used 20 lbs of vegetables! I cut it down so that it only calls for about 12 cups (not sure on the weight)

First, you want a selection of root vegetables. Our favorites are red potatoes and carrots but you may also want to consider, turnips, rutabaga, yams, beets or parsnip.

Then your softer vegetables. We like peppers (red,orange and yellow), onion, green beans,asparagus,whole garlic and zucchini. One of these days I am going to try brussel sprouts!

I keep the root vegetables separate from the softer vegetables because the root vegetables will take longer to cook.

Divide the liquid mixture between the two bowls. Place the root vegetables on a cookie sheet and bake at 425 for about 15 minutes or until the veggies just begin to get tender.

Add in the softer veggies and stir. Be sure all the vegetables are coated with the liquid mixture.

And continue to bake for another 15 minutes or so until they root veggies are nice and tender.

Vegetables never tasted so good. You may or may not need a main dish to go along with this.
