Roasting Vegetables, instead of frying, helps retain their nutrient value because nothing is lost in the cooking water or in the steam. I had a request for this recipe Roasted Vegetables which has an incredible flavor and is so simple to make.
Ingredients ( Serves 3 )
2 tbsp EVOO
I medium yellow onion(sliced thickly)
3 medium potatoes (skin scrubbed, eyes removed and cut into big cubes)
I small zucchini (sliced thickly)
1 small red / green bell pepper( cut into cubes)
1.5 tbsp potato seasoning mix ( See note below)
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F ( 180 deg C)
Heat a big pot on medium heat and add in the EVOO.
In goes the sliced onions first, after 2 minutes. add the seasoning mix, potatoes, zucchini and red pepper.
Sauté for 10 mins stirring occasionally to prevent the vegs from sticking to the pot.
Switch the fire off and place the entire contents of the pot onto a baking tray.
Spread the vegetables out evenly and bake for 30mins or till vegetables are all cooked and browned. Check by piercing with a fork or a knife.
Enjoy hot with any western dishes. It goes perfectly with Mac & Cheese (which is the next recipe on the way).
Note: If you are not keen on using store bought potato seasoning mix because of the preservatives, you can make your own using the recipe below.

1 tsp corn starch
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
