Baked veggies

Tired to cook tonight? Here is an easy, healthy and nutrient-filled dinner. Bake root vegetables. They are high in fiber, low in calories and filled with vitamin A, C, folic acid and minerals. Serve them with easily cooked couscous or quinoa.

Dandelion Foods has all the ingredients; organic and fresh.

  • Ingredients
    3 carrots, 3 turnips, 2 potatoes, 3 parsnips, 4 sun chokes, 4 parsnips, 1 celery strand. Wash, trim and cut into bite size pieces
    2 medium onions peel and cut into large wedges
  • 1 head garlic peel and mines
    2 tomatoes cut into small wedges
  • 2 table spoon olive or sunflower oil
  • A generous pinch of rosemary or sage (or both)
  • Salt and black paper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place all the vegetables along with oil, salt, pepper and herbs in a large baking dish. Mix well so every piece is coated with oil and herbs. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and put it in the preheated oven and cook for 40-45 minutes. Stir the vegetables occasionally. When they are looking golden brown your dinner is ready.

Serve with couscous, quinoa, pasta or rice. Do what is easy for you. I love to make my food colourful, so I added one each red and yellow bell peppers, few mushrooms and 1 zucchini. You can add or subtract any of the above ingredients. The key is healthy and quick dinner. Enjoy!
