Oven Roasted Veggies

GF, DF, SF, Vegan, Paleo

These are the most amazing, flavorful, juicy roasted veggies – Ever! I found the recipe on google from The Wednesday Chef and just changed a few of the veggies to my liking. I have to admit, I’m not a big fan of cooked vegetables in general, (I prefer raw veggies) but with gastroparesis, cooking them is a must. I’m so happy to have found this recipe because I can eat these throughout the day, as a side or snack, and they stay good for at least a week, so I can keep them around for a while. It’s got some great juices in the bottom as well that keep it nice and moist. Get ready to fall in love!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 Butternut Squash
  • 3 Carrots
  • 3 Tomatoes
  • Potatoes- I like the mini yellow ones (5)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 7-10 Tblsp Olive Oil
  • 2-3 cloves Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • Salt & pepper

Directions:

  1. Chop up all ingredients to about 1/4 inch or less.
  2. Preheat oven to 375*
  3. Put all ingredients except tomatoes in a casserole dish.
  4. Toss with lots of olive oil so it looks shiny (I start with around 7 Tblsp). Add garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix it around really well.
  5. Add tomatoes (so they don’t get mushy while mixing). Mix a little more.
  6. Bake for 50 minutes total, taking out and stirring at 20 minutes and 40 minutes, to bring veggies on bottom to the top. I also add some more olive oil each time I take them out (1-2 Tblsp).

A tip: When you cut up all the veggies, make twice or three times as much and put them ingredients together in bags and freeze! Now, you have a month worth of veggies already cut up and fresh that just need to be baked. Check out the concept here from Mama and Baby Love.
