Festive roasted root veggiesPosted in Food, Vegetables on October 20th, 2009 by monicajane
I found the recipe that inspired this dish by following Dr. Weil on Twitter. He tweeted this recipe. I pretty much did exactly what he suggested but I only used some of the veggies he suggested. I didn’t include potatoes, as I accidentally used all of them for the potato soup I made and then I forgot the carrots.
The yellow veggie is a beet. I didn’t use red beets.
This is what I did:
5 small parsnips
1 super large golden beet
1 very large red onion cut into 6 large pieces and divided up some
a few sprigs of rosemary
12 cloves of garlic (which I cooked with the veggies from beginning to end unlike Weil’s recipe)
Salt and black pepper to taste
Olive oil to taste
Balsamic vinegar to taste
I mixed everything but the balsamic up at the beginning and then roasted the whole thing in a roasting pan. I added the balsamic towards the end of the roasting time. I’m sorry but I didn’t notice how long it took, maybe and hour or an hour and a half.
