These intensely flavored vegetables are substantial enough to stand alone as a meal; or serve them hot out of the oven with a tossed green salad and warm, whole-grain bread for a satisfying lunch on a cold winter day.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 pound red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 pound sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 pound carrots, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 pound parsnips, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch chunks
2 small sweet yellow onions, peeled and cut into eighths
10 cloves garlic, peeled and lightly crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
Fresh thyme sprigs (for garnish)
Soak top and bottom of a clay cooker in water for 15 minutes. Drain.
Place red potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions and garlic in cooker. Season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Add broth. Place covered pot in a cold oven. Set oven to 450° and cook for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until vegetables are tender.
