Naked

Here is a photo of naked vegetables (were you thinking something else?), peeled and ready to be chopped up and roasted.  There are two sweet potatoes, two white carrots, two beets, a disassembled shallot, and some garlic cloves.  All the veggies except for the garlic are from our CSA.

I had never seen white carrots before, and I confess that I am puzzled.  If they’re not orange, are they still nutritious and good for your eyes?  And if not, why bother?  They don’t seem to taste any better than the orange type of carrot.

Anyway, here are the veggies chopped up, dressed in herbs, olive oil, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper:

And here they are all cooked and ready to be eaten for dinner, filling a bowl my dad made with his own hands.  They were in a 450 degree (F) oven for about 40 minutes.

    Every mother’s dream…a child who eats her veggies! Hooray! Also, I’m so glad that Dad made the bowl “with his own hands.” One wonders what he could have done with mine. XOXO
