Savoury Roasted Root Vegetables

    1 hour 15 min

    Beetroot was my sworn enemy until I tried it like this; it's a great way to use any root vegetables. I think the beetroot adds a beautiful red colour to the dish, but if it bothers you to serve pinkish vegetables, substitute parsnip, swede or any similar vegetable; be creative!

    Prep:30min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr15min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6.
    2. Place the beetroot, carrot, onion, potato, garlic and chickpeas into a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish. Drizzle with the olive oil, then season with thyme, salt and pepper. Mix well.
    3. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring once midway through baking. Remove the baking dish from the oven, and stir in the wine. Return to the oven, and bake until the wine has mostly evaporated and the vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes more. Stir in the greens, allowing them to wilt from the heat of the vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper before serving.

    I love the spices and the use of the dry white wine! (added some salt to taste). I used veggies I had on hand: sweet potato, red potato, carrots, onion, brussels sprouts. Everything was cooked perfectly. The onion was delicious! My husband isn't usually too excited about veggies I cook,but he LOVED these and couldn't stop complimenting!  -  09 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Too good. Delicious! Only changed the white wine to 1 part white wine vinegar and 3 parts water. This is really really good, beet haters will also eat it with pleasure like my husband;-)  -  14 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make a similar dish adding sweet potatoes along with the regular. Also, I have tried balsamic vinegar which adds a little sweetness if you like that. Absolutely scrumptious!!  -  14 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
