TUESDAY'S LUNCH SPECIALS
(Got your favorite family recipe? ok! send it on in! firstname.lastname@example.org)
It's Woobsie from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. Eventhough I live in southern Ontario and we aren't THAT much further north than New York it seems we can still revel in the idea that we are Canadians suffering the 8 month long winters and survive on Tim Hortons coffee to warm out chilled bones. Well I don't even LIKE that coffee!!! Anywayz I made this dish because I wanted something warm, hearty, healthy and something to take advantage of sweet potatoes (cos they are so darn good!) Its hearty and mouthwatering but SOOO healthy...lots of garlic, onions and cancer fighting veggies. So easy too! It will fill your house with a great homey aroma. Make this right before your parents come over and they will forever stop asking what you ate for dinner over the phone to make sure you aren't malnourished and incapable of making real meals. Serve as a vegetarian main dish over rice or side dish to a roast.
Also not exactly the nicest smelling after breath meal so have some gum/mints on hand if you are trying to have a romantic dinner in.
Next time I'll send out a less healthy recipe, no worries.
Woobsie's Roasted Autumn Veggies
2 sweet potatoes cut into large bite size chunks
2 regular potatoes (again chunked)
4 carrots (peeled and chunked) or a little bag of baby carrots (unchunked)
1 can of corn (drained...not CREAM corn either!)
2 big handfuls of fresh mushrooms (quartered or halved)
1 head of garlic (yes the WHOLE head...just clean all the cloves and keep them whole)
1 onion (chunked)
2 tsp salt
1-2 tsp pepper (seems like alot but trust me here)
3-4 tbsp olive oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Throw everything into a bowl, mix so veggies are coated with oil. Now line a roasting pan with aluminum foil, and pour the veggies in. Cook uncovered for 50 minutes, stirring once half way. (Usually if i go to pull it out cos i think its done and see there is still alot of juices i put it in for another 10 or 15 min till the juices are gone in the bottom of the pan ..thats when you know its done) Serve over rice and enjoy!
