Recipe part 2........Roast those roots!
I love this time of year, when it's cold outside it's a joy to turn the oven on. Nothing says loving like garlic and onions in the oven. This is my favorite way to prepare vegetables, it's easy peasy, makes the house smell like a home and really heightens the flavors for a variety of winter vegetables.
preheat oven to 400 degrees
chop root vegetables to the approximate same size I should have halved brussels sprouts (they took a little longer) parsnip, celeric, fennel bulb, potatoes reg, sweet or yams, carrots, any kind of squash, onions, turnips, you get the picture..arrange on baking sheets.
* I like to add an apple or two for brighness if you can find those sweet crabapples they're wonderful, I use Granny Smith.
Drizzle with a good olive oil, Trader Joes, local California is my choice.
With your garlic press squeeze fresh garlic over the top, use as much as you like, I like a lot (4 or 5 cloves between 2 baking sheets of veg.
I have thyme in my garden, so I added that, you can also use dried herbs, oregano is good too.
salt and pepper
