Roasted Vegetables – Provencal Style

Roasted Provencal Vegetables

One night, we had dinner at my Uncle Carmen’s house and he made THE BEST roasted vegetables.  I couldn’t get enough.  I had seconds…and then I had thirds!  They were THAT good! Uncle Carmen and I are both lovers of all things food.  We talk about recipes and cooking and techniques.  He’s a great cook and we are always swapping recipes.   So, I managed to get his recipe for these heavenly roasted vegetables provencal style  and now I’m going to share it with you!

Is It a Keeper?

These.  Are.  Good.  Soooo good!  Even my husband, who is very picky on the vegetables that he eats, LOVES these!  See those really “dark” pieces in the photo above?  Those are his favorite ones — he picks them all out of the bowl!  I love how they are slightly crispy on the outside.  Tender on the inside.  And, oh so flavorful!  I also love how roasting brings out the natural sweetness of the veggies.  You’ve gotta try these!

Oh, and for the record, I’ve tried this recipe using other veggies too.  I’ve added sweet potatoes — yum!  And, I also sliced up a fennel bulb – double yum!  I really liked the licorice-y flavor of the fennel!  This is definitely a recipe you can play around with — try different things.  Whatever tickles your fancy.

Definitely a keeper!  A great staple recipe!

    I love roasting vegetables! It’s also so forgiving, and like your husband, I love the dark, crispy ones! Roasting seems to give the veggies a more intense flavor. Delicious!

    I have been trying for weeks to download your recipes but to no avail. They pop up on the screen and then they disappear.

      The print feature does not play nicely with Internet Explorer. If you try Mozilla Firefox (as your browser) it should work. I don’t know why the module works like that, but I’ve tried everything to find one that works for both web browsers. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I hope this helps.

    I make roasted vegetables all the time. I haven’t roasted parsnips though but will definitely try them! I love how roasting brings out the sweetness in the vegetables. I roast cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, onions and even roast romaine lettuce. I use the same recipe Carmen does……..olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. I will have to pick up Herbs de Provence.
