Well, one of my goals was to try to average two posts a day during Lent, and I have just made a lot of work for myself by missing four posts in a row! This is from the Wednesday night potluck, I decided to do Oil Free Roasted Vegetables. I tried to get a nice variety of colors, you can use pretty much whatever you want.
I usually bake a bunch of potatoes to have one hand during the week, the skins peels right off just by rubbing them once they’ve cooled. I only needed one very large sweet potato for this.
Along with the sweet potato I had purple carrots, onion, yellow bell pepper and red cabbage, I threw in about half a dozen cloves of garlic. I lined the pan with parchment paper, it seems like something that might stick.
Without oil I was afraid the roasted vegetables would dry out, so I used a marinade – Kikkoman Teriyaki. I added agave necar (could also use maple syrup), garlic powder, pepper and orange juice. I just added everything to taste, using enough to get the veggies nice and juicy.
I covered the baking dish and baked the vegetables at 425 until tender, about one hour (but check after 45 minutes, ovens may vary). You may want to uncover the veggies at some point and stick them under the broiler if you’d like them to brown.
The marinade worked perfectly to keep the vegetables moist, and it tasted great!
Here’s the rest of the potluck spread:
