Kreck here. A few weeks ago I bought these PURPLE (!) potatoes from the farmer's market without knowing what I'd do with them. Today it was their time to shine, because I decided to try my hand at roasting vegetables. And believe me readers: if I can do it, so can all of y'all.
I started off by cutting up potatoes, carrots, celery, onions and a couple of garlic cloves, as well as a couple of apples, just to be adventurous. I tossed them in a large bowl with olive oil, cayenne pepper, paprika and oregano. Then I put everything in a large casserole dish, covered it with aluminum foil and put it in the oven (at 375 degree Fahrenheit) and let it cook for 75 minutes. It may take more or less time depending on your oven, so just keep checking to see if the harder vegetables are cooked.
Behold the result:
This was so good, especially the apples! (And all of the produce was local!) The next time I make this, I will definitely add more apples, onions, garlic and herbs.
Give it a try!
Vegetables: It's what we roastin'.
