Recipe by grumblebee
This recipe combines the goodness of oven roasted vegetables with the flavours (and cheese!) of a hearty french onion soup. I came up with this recipe when I had a craving for both roasted veggies and french onion soup but didn't want to go to the trouble of making both! Make sure to serve this with some nice crusty bread to help soak up the yummy juices. :) Feel free to swap out the vegetables listed for those to suit your preference. It's good to use ones of similar texture and cooking time though so that everything cooks evenly. (example: don't put delicate asparagus with harder veg like turnip) You may also want to use more or less cheese, depending on your taste.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 medium white onions, thinly sliced
- 1 cup water
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- 4 medium potatoes, cut into chunks
- 3 large carrots, sliced
- 1 red onion, cut into chunks
- 1 large parsnip, sliced
- 3⁄4 cup fresh green beans
- 1⁄3 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 425°F
- Melt butter in saucepan and add in thinly sliced white onions. Simmer over medium/high heat, stirring occasionally, while you prep the other vegetables.
- Chop and wash all vegetables. Potatos and red onion into chunks, parsnip and carrots into thick slices, and the green beans into 1 inch pieces. Combine vegetables and place in a rectangular, glass baking dish. Set aside.
- By now the onions should be cooked through. At this point, dissolve bouillion cube in hot water and slowly add this into the onion mixture while stirring.
- Pour onion and broth mixture over the vegetables and cover the baking dish with tin foil. Place in oven and bake for 30-40 minutes or until vegetables are tender and cooked.
- Remove from oven and take off the foil. Sprinkle the cooked vegetable mixture first with the breadcrumbs and then with the grated mozzarella cheese.
- Place dish back into oven and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. :).
