Roasted Vegetable Medley

Roasted Vegetable Medley

 

I have made a vegetable medley in the past, but it was a different mix, sweet potatoes, carrots, red peppers, parsnips, Mexican grey squash, and asparagus.  This time, I used what I had just gotten from Bountiful Baskets and some things I had in my fridge, red potatoes, rainbow carrots, radishes, red onion, Mexican grey squash and yellow squash.  It ended up really good this time too, the veggies got a very sweet taste to them.

 

Roasted Vegetable Medley

What you need:

2-3 red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (I left on the peels)
2-3 carrots, sliced into thin rounds
1 bunch radishes, cut in halves or fourths, depending on size
1/2 of a red onion, cut in larger wedges
1 zucchini, or Mexican grey squash, sliced into thin rounds
1 yellow squash, sliced into thin rounds
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Olive oil

How to make it:

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray or brush with olive oil.  Place potatoes, carrots, and radishes on the baking sheet.  Drizzle or spray with olive oil and season with half of basil, oregano, garlic salt, and pepper.  Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.  Then, add the zucchini, yellow squash, and red onion to the baking sheet.  Drizzle or spray with olive oil, and season with the remaining spices. Bake again for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables have all softened.  If desired, splash vegetables with balsamic vinegar before serving.

Radish Dip

14 Sep

My husband loves radishes, and since they were 2 for $1, I bought some on my last trip to the grocery store.  He usually eats them raw, but this time suggested I make the radish dip I had made once before.  Last time it was actually more like a spread, so this time I changed it a little to make it more like a dip.

Radish Dip

What you need:
2 cloves garlic (You may add more or less depending on your taste level.  I actually used 4 cloves tonight and it was a bit much for me)
2 bunches radishes, quartered
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream*

How to Make it:

Peel the garlic cloves and mince in a food processor.  Add the radishes and mince them as well.  Add in the cream cheese and sour cream, pulse until well blended.  Serve with chips or your favorite veggies.

*Note that if you want this to be more of a spread than a dip, omit the 8 oz sour cream and add another 8 oz of cream cheese.
