Marinated Roasted Vegetables
- Ready In:
- 2hrs 45mins
- 1 1⁄2 lbs potatoes, medium-sized, peeled and halved
- 6 carrots, peeled and cut into thirds
- 2 medium onions, peeled and halved
- 3 celery ribs, cut into 3-inch lengths
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard (I like Heinz)
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons malt vinegar (or balsamic vinegar)
- 1 teaspoon dried sweet basil leaves
- 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder, tomato flavored (look in Mexican aisle at grocery)
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Blend all ingredients except for the vegetables in a large mixing bowl to make the marinade. Pour in the vegetables and stir them around so that they get initially coated with marinade.
- Marinate the vegetables in the refrigerator for about 2 hours, stirring once or twice.
- Place the vegetables, with all the marinade, in an 9" x 13" (or larger) casserole dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake on the middle rack in a pre-heated oven at 375-degrees F. for 45 minutes.
- Serve hot.
- TIP: Sometimes the potatoes and carrots I use in this recipe are a little flaccid -- so, to fix that problem, all I do is soak them in really cold water (after they're peeled) for about 2 hours before marinating and they crisp right up!

<p>I am a retired State Park Resort Manager/Ranger. <br /><br />Anyway, as to my years in the State Park System (retired now), I was responsible for 4 restaurants/dining rooms on my park and my boss at Central Headquarters said I should spend less time in my kitchens and more time tending to my park budget. I spent 25 years in those kitchens and worked with some really great chefs over those years, (and some really awful ones too!) <br /><br />I spent THOUSANDS of hours on every inch of that park and adjacent state forest (60,000 acres) and sometimes I miss it. But mostly I miss being in that big beautiful resort lodge kitchen. I miss my little marina restaurant down on the Ohio River too. I served the best Reuben Sandwich (my own recipe -- posted on 'Zaar as The Shawnee Marina Reuben Sandwich) in both the State of Ohio and the Commonwealth of Kentucky down there and sold it for $2.95. Best deal on the river! <br /><br />They (friends and neighbors) call my kitchen The Ospidillo Cafe. Don't ask me why because it takes about a case of beer, time-wise, to explain the name. Anyway, it's a small galley kitchen with a Mexican motif (until my wife catches me gone for a week or so), and it's a very BUSY kitchen as well. We cook at all hours of the day and night. You are as likely to see one of my neighbors munching down over here as you are my wife or daughter. I do a lot of recipe experimentation and development. It has become a really fun post-retirement hobby -- and, yes, I wash my own dishes. <br /><br />Also, I'm the Cincinnati Chili Emperor around here, or so they say. (Check out my Ospidillo Cafe Cincinnati Chili recipe). SKYLINE CHILI is one of my four favorite chilis, and the others include: Gold Star Chili, Empress Chili and, my VERY favorite, Dixie. All in and around Cincinnati. Great stuff for cheap and I make it at home too. <br /><br />I also collect menus and keep them in my kitchen -- I have about a hundred or so. People go through them and when they see something that they want, I make it the next day. That presents some real challenges! <br /><br />http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/parks/parks/shawnee.htm</p>
