Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs potatoes, red or yellow varieties (6 small potatoes), cut into 2-inch (5cm) pieces
  • 2 carrots, cut into 2-inch (5cm) pieces
  • 4 shallots, peeled and halved
  • 8 garlic cloves, divided, minced
  • 2 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1/2 lb green beans, whole
  • 1 red pepper, cut into 2-inch (5cm) pieces
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 2-inch (5cm) chunks
  • 10 mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
  • Wash and dry potatoes and carrots, cut into 2-inch (5cm) pieces. Place potatoes, carrots, shallots and half of the minced garlic in a bowl and drizzle with 1 Tbsp (15g) olive oil. Toss oil and vegetables, add marjoram and mix well.
  • Spray two baking sheets with vegetable oil spray, divide and layer vegetables evenly on sheets. Place baking sheets in oven for 30 minutes.
  • While potatoes and carrots are cooking. Wash and dry remaining vegetables. Cut red pepper and zucchini into 2-inch (5cm) pieces. Place vegetables in a bowl with clean mushrooms and drizzle with 1 Tbsp (15mL) olive oil, add remaining garlic and toss gently until blended.
  • After potatoes and carrots have cooked for 30 minutes, remove from oven. Divide the green bean vegetable mixture between the two baking sheets. Mix vegetables with potatoes and carrots, forming a single layer on the baking sheet. Return to oven for another 15-20 minutes, cooking until tender.
  • Experiment with this recipe and try seasonal vegetables such as eggplant, yellow squash, turnips, broccoli and cauliflower.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
