Serves 2: Simple, wholesome meals are made from fresh ingredients, a pinch of seasonings and spice, and cooked slowly to bring out all the flavors. That’s the case with this herbed apple, carrot, and onion roast. It’s the perfect side dish for a nice home cooked dinner or a swank dinner party. Elegant and delicious!
Tools Needed: Chopping board, vegetable peeler, kitchen knife, 1 lg. sealable plastic bag, 1 lg. roasting tray
- 1 lg. red onion
- 2 apples, cored and cut into wedges
- 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- ½ tsp. salt
- 4 carrots, peeled & sliced into 2 inch pieces
- 2 cloves garlic, grated
- 1 tsp. herbes de Provence*
- ¼ tsp. pepper
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Process the vegetables (saving the trimmings and skins for stock) and place everything into a large plastic sealable bag. Add the oil and seasonings, seal, and shake until the apples and vegetables are thoroughly coated. Pour out onto your roasting tray in a single layer. Try to give space between the pieces for proper roasting. Place in the oven for 45 minutes, or until the onions are caramelized and the carrots are tender.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate as a cold side dish for lunch the following day.
*Herbes de Provence is a seasoning mix commonly available in grocery stores. It’s a blend of oregano, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, lavender and sage. Any of these seasonings can be used in nearly any combination with this dish.
