Roasted Root Veggies July 21, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Vegetarian Recipes.

IMGP4091In a large baking pan, place chunks of potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips, and/or onion in a single layer (without crowding the pan).

Drizzle veggies with olive oil, and sprinkle with rosemary, garlic salt, and black pepper.

Stir to distribute oil and seasonings evenly through the veggies.

Place in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes, stirring once during roasting time.

For an alternate method, use parchment paper as shown in this Green Cuisine video:  Veggie Love

Delicious when eaten with steamed couscous!

Yum! I love couscous, swirled with garlic and greens.

Good with quinoa – one of my favorite grains! Also, in order to mix the flavors well, when roasting veggies, I either Mix the oil and seasonings before putting over them, or mix the veggies together in a bowl with everything in it (that way they get evenly coated with the oil), then pour them into the roasting pan, after draining off the excess oil. The first just saves you from washing another dish, but the second usually comes out of the roasting pan easier!

Quinoa is an EXCELLENT addition to our daily diet ~ full of protein without having to ingest animal flesh.

I used to use a bowl. Now, I toss everything into the pan, then tilt it, and let the veggies roll around in the oil to get coated on all sides before shoving the pan into the oven.

The fewer pans I have to wash when I cook, the better I like it.

I just ate the absolutely PERFECT nectarine, and all thoughts of anything else have flown from my mind…mmmmmmmmmm

nrhatch - July 21, 2010

How many people would have eaten that same nectarine without noticing its nectar at all???

When we stay in the moment, the gifts we receive remain front and center . . . knocking everything else aside so we can gulp down the juicy pleasures of the present moment.

Now . . . pass me a nectarine, please. : )
