Roasted Winter Vegetables
Contributed by Patricia Barry
Packed with ingredients, rich in nutrients and standard flavorings; carrots, garlic, parsley, yams, white potatoes, olive oil, parsnips, shallots, fresh or dried rosemary.
1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Pour a little olive oil into a large mixing bowl. Peel the root vegetables and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Skin the shallots and, if large, cut them in two or divide into segments. Remove the papery skins from the garlic cloves.
2. Mix the vegetables with the oil so that each piece is thinly coated. Add a shake of black pepper and salt. Add plenty of spikes of fresh or dried rosemary. Mix well.
3. Pour a small amount of olive oil onto a large metal baking tray and place in the hot oven for 3 minutes. Add the vegetable mixture to the hot oil in a single layer and return to the oven. (If you're feeding a lot of people, use more than one tray.)
4. Roast for an hour altogether. But after 40 minutes, remove from the oven and turn the vegetables to brown them evenly. Serve hot, with a scattering of chopped parsley.
