Sophia, Naturally Loves My Mya's Cooking

Mya, as loved ones affectionately call my sister, can cook. Especially, she can cook veggies and seafood superbly as I have discovered in the past few years. Because I know many of you are veggie lovers, I am posting this Root Vegetables recipe she made recently. I love you Mya and am patiently waiting those new Sisterlock photos.

2 pounds root vegetables (use red-skinned potatoes, carrots, parsnips, turnips or rutabagas, beets if you like ), peeled and cut coarsely into 1-inch and 2- inch pieces, 2 large red onions, peeled and cut into 1/3-inch wedges, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, Salt to taste, 1 head garlic, separated into cloves and peeled, Chopped fresh herbs like rosemary or balsamic vinegar (optional)

***Saute the vegetables for about 10 minutes in a skillet first before roasting.***

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place the root vegetables and onion in a roasting pan.

2. Toss the vegetables with the olive oil and salt to taste. Do not crowd the vegetables.

3. Roast the mixture for a total of 45-50 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. After 30 minutes, scatter the garlic cloves in with the vegetables. Continue stirring every 15 minutes until the vegetables are tender and evenly browned.

4. Before serving, add a sprinkling of fresh chopped herbs or balsamic vinegar, if you like for additional flavor.
