Better Late Than Never [Feb. 5th, 2016|09:17 pm]
Tony Grist
Most of my life I've eaten my root vegetables boiled. It is- I suppose- the English way- also the quickest- but recently I've learned the way to concentrate the flavour and make them actually worth eating is to roast them

Roasting is my favourite way to cook any vegetables, root or otherwise. Roast brussels sprouts or asparagus e.g. are also so much tastier. Roast potatos, sweet potatos, carrots, beets...SO good!

I did a dish of roasted roots yesterday- carrot, parsnip, sweet potato, swede. I don't believe I've ever roasted sprouts.

Roasted after being lightly coated with olive oil. Yum.

That's right. You need a drizzle of olive oil.

Oh yes, roasted veg is very good and tasty. Or steam cooking as well.

I haven't used a steamer for a while. I should.

We roast/bake potatoes, onions, and carrots in the roasting pan right along with our chickens and pork roasts.

Yes, I've done that too.

Only I don't eat meat so I'm roasting them separately these days.

Oh yes. Good on a cold winter's night - when it's OK to run the oven for a couple of hours.

Yes, it's time consuming.
