I love roasted vegetables. This is an easy and simply delicious recipe by Jamie Oliver. Your veggies will be crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Yum!
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Peel the veggies and halve any larger ones lengthways. I like to quarter my potatoes (sometimes more if they are large).
- Break the garlic bulb into cloves, smash them slightly and take peels off. (Jamie leaves his unpeeled, but I prefer the garlic peeled.).
- Pick the rosemary leaves off the stalks.
- Put the potatoes and carrots into a large pan of salted boiling water on high heat and bring back to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes, then add the parsnips and cook for another 4 minutes.
- Drain the veggies in a colander and allow to steam dry.
- Take the carrots and parsnips out and set aside.
- "Fluff" the potatoes in the colander by shaking it around a little. It's important to do this if you want the yummy crispy bits and edges.
- Put a large roasting pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the garlic and rosemary leaves. Then put all the veggies into the pan with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Stir them around to get them well coated.
- Spread the veggies evenly out into one layer. This is important, so they will roast, not steam.
- Put them into the preheated oven and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. This will depend on your oven. I like to stir them up at least once while cooking. Watch so they don't burn.
Delicious! This is easy and tasty, and the combo of boiling/steaming to dry then roasting made for perfectly textured veggies. I halved the recipe for two of us and ended up with some delicious leftovers I am looking forward to enjoying later. Thanks for sharing! Culinary Quest '14
You had me at rosemary... I've done similar recipes but never before w parsnips! I also peeled the garlic... Made for PAC Fall 2012
I love roasted veggies and this recipe was no exception. I also love rosemary and thought it was the perfect pairing with this combination of vegetables. The garlic I used was the kind that you buy in a jar already chopped. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.
