Another November oven dish for you! A hot steamy dish of sliced potatoes and sooo many vegetables! It’s healthy, colorful for kids and a busy day-proof dish! I had tofu in my fridge and it went so well with the vegetables. You can easily do the preparations a day in advance. Just make sure you keep the vegetables and potatoes in a big bowl of water in the fridge.
Ok, this time I went bananas or better said, I went vegetables with the vegetables. I have recently bought a very cheap but cute vegetable slicer. You can use it to make spirals of different kinds of veggies or potatoes and gosh, I did. Yeey, I made carrot spirals! Last week I couldn’t resist the colorful carrots in the supermarket. I could almost hear them whisper: “Buy us, buy us Marcia. You can do great things with us!” So I listened of course because there is absolutely no reason why I should have resisted the calling of colorful and healthy vegetables. They looked so pretty and delicious and I have used my slicer for these rainbow colored veggies. They were perfect for my oven dish and are also applicable in desserts.
I sliced up a couple of potatoes, the purple, yellow and orange carrots and the cabbage. With a couple of red cherry tomatoes, it looked like a November/Autumn color fest in a bowl. It already looked pretty before cooking and it came out smelling wonderful. It smelled and looked like a cozy meal that will warm your whole core on cold days. The onion and garlic have a subtile sweet taste and are flavorful because they are roasted in the oven.
Last year my mom received some Italian herbs as a Christmas gift such as bruschetta herbs. She knows how much I like to cook and experiment in the kitchen so she gave the herbs to me. I used a tea spoon of those dried herbs in this dish. I am not really a fan of oregano but because it is mixed with other dried herbs such as tomato and olive, this mix tastes really well with the potatoes. Another gift that I have used is some lemon olive oil. This oil adds some freshness to the spicy and salt of the oven baked veggies. This dish can easily be eaten by itself or with a little bowl of rice. Yet another November oven dish for you! Enjoy 😉
