Roasted Trio of Vegetables (Gluten-Free)

May 27, 2010

I love cooking vegetables a variety of different ways, but I always seem to go back to the method of roasting. Roasting really brings out the color and flavor of the vegetables, not to mention that it is super easy to do. I actually might be serving this as a side dish to go along with some mozzarella stuffed burgers and cayenne-spiked oven roasted fries for Memorial Day. I always try to get some vegetables in with every meal. This includes breakfast!

What is your favorite method of cooking vegetables?

Head on over to the Foodspring blogger contest to vote for my gluten-free buddy, Amy of Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free. She shares an inspiring story on how she goes through culinary school being gluten-free. She is also the only gluten-free blogger featured in this contest. How cool would it be for her to win the whole thing? Go vote!

Back to the recipe…Play around with proportions of vegetables, oil, vinegar and seasoning. Find a method that works for you. There are infinite possibilities!

Ingredients: (varies)

2 heads broccoli, cut into bite size pieces

2 heads cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces

4 carrots, sliced thin

1 sweet onion, sliced thin

1 cup dried cranberries

fresh thyme, about 3 tablespoons

salt

pepper

olive oil

white wine vinegar, 1-3 tablespoons

garlic powder, 1/2 tablespoon

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350.

Place all vegetables on cookie sheets in an even layer (you might have to use a couple of sheets).

Sprinkle seasonings, oil and vinegar over the single layer of vegetables. Mix well to incorporate seasonings and liquids.

Roast in oven for 15-30 minutes, depending on power of oven. The vegetables should have a bright appearance with some caramelization.

Enjoy!

    I absolutely love blanching my vegetables then tossing in a bit of butter or olive oil, coarse salt and pepper. The cranberries are totally unexpected, I love it!
