I have some great friends that have included me on their Facebook pages and they love to share all sorts of recipes. This recipe is a great one for using veggies you get from the farmers market like carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, brussel sprouts, squash, just about any vegetable will work with this and I have to say it is delicious. Roasting all the vegetables together with the spices gives it a wonderful blended taste. O YUM!
Anyway, David Murphy, Blogger, SMM Manager & Online Campaign Manager at FoodnService.com,Mommerce.com, Notageek4u.com. has this recipe that I thought I would want to share with you all. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Oven Roasted Vegetables
- 1 bundle of asparagus
- 1 small bag of snow peas
- 2 medium to small yellow squash
- 1 zucchini
- 1 small bag of baby carrots
- 1 package of grape tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes)
- 1 small bag of baby red potatoes (a.k.a. red bliss or you can use fingerling potatoes)
- EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
- 2 tablespoons Rosemary (If you are using fresh, then it would be 3 tablespoons)
- 2 1/2 tablespoons Basil (If you are using fresh, then it would be 1/3 cup basil)
- McCormick’s steak seasoning’s (pepper mix-it’s part of their Grinders series)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Garlic Salt
- Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees
- Cut squash and potatoes into chunks. For the asparagus, snap at the appropriate areas for them. This is usually about 1 to 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the asparagus. Then cut Asparagus in half. Not down the middle in half, but across. We want to leave the spears intact.
- Next, you will want to mix the vegetables in one bowl. Unless you have a really HUGE bowl, then do like me and use 2 separate bowls.
- Once the vegetables are in the bowl, sprinkle your EVOO all around the top of them. This will probably wind up being about 1/4 cup.
- Add all of the seasonings on top. Now, Use the salt and McCormick’s pepper mix to your own liking. Everyone has their own salt and pepper Some might even want to add more rosemary and less basil, but to each their own. With a wooden spatula, fold all of the vegetables and seasoning together. Keep mixing until you are sure that the ingredients are nice and spread out.
- When done, place your vegetables into a deep baking dish. I had to use two! lol..don’t judge me. Cover the dishes with foil, and bake for 30 minutes. Then, take off the foil and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes. If you like your vegetables more al dente, then lessen the covered cooking time.
- Voila! You’re all done! Now just enjoy it! This makes a great “anytime-of-the-year” dish or side dish to appeal to the masses
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy it! Stay tuned for more!
David Murphy: Blogger, SMM Manager & Online Campaign Manager at FoodnService.com,Mommerce.com, Notageek4u.com. As a vegetarian, I’m always trying to find new ways to enhance the flavor of food. I’m sharing one of my personal favorite dishes that I love to cook! Fair warning: I like to cook in big batches, so I don’t have to cook a lot later! Let’s get started!
I love blogging and being able to share my creative food & craft ideas with the world. I’m completely addicted to Pinterest and knitting, but I sure do love Social Media in general…and then being able to teach others what I’ve learned. I’m also an online Campaign Project Manager where I help brands and bloggers get introduced to each other. Now THAT’S definitely a lot of fun!
Well that is all I have for today, I will think of something to put on for tomorrow. Might just check my recipes and see what else I can send your way.
Until tomorrow then, Think Farmers Market because I think Spring is already here. Hooray!
