These easy roasted garlic vegetables are easy to make and so versatile. Can be a side dish or tossed with pasta, rice or even added to a salad.I have been buying lots of vegetables lately. I think is because spring is just about here and I’m longing for my garden. Also my friend Rhonda has been generously giving me some too. So when I have an abundance of veggies and don’t want them to go bad, I roast them. It’s easy and tasty and very versatile. We usually just have them as a side dish but many times I have tossed them with rice, pasta or some other grain. You can also put them in soup or on top of a salad.
As you can see I have a colorful selection. Do you just love the colors of radishes and red onions? If you have never roasted a radish, you should. They taste very similar to potatoes and they are pretty! So below I have mushrooms, broccoli, zucchini, sweet peppers, red onions, radishes, carrots and turnips. I told you I had a lot of vegetables. I chopped them in small pieces and tossed them with olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. Oh yeah, I also added 7 cloves of garlic too. Just add them whole and they will roast amongst your vegetables. Roasted garlic doesn’t have that strong, pungent taste of raw or lightly cooked garlic. It’s much more mellow and adds to the flavor of the veggies.
After you have chopped them, spread them out evenly on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes or to your liking. Make sure you don’t crowd your veggies or they won’t cook evenly. I was pushing the limits on this one but they still had room to breath.
And here we have our lovely roasted veggies. Almost as colorful as the raw vegetables and oh so tasty. These went quickly but as I said there are lots of things you can do with them.
