Roast Fingerling Potatoes & Winter Veggies

This blend of PNW winter crop veggies from my most recent Terra Organics delivery roasts up in a warm, mellow, hearty, and most delicious manner. A perfect complement to cold, winter nights!

Fresh, organic ingredients. So pretty!

Roast Fingerling Potatoes & Winter Veggies

  • 1.5 lbs fingerling potatoes, whole or halved to maintain uniform size
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into individual florets (keep leaves!)
  • ¼ lb (or so) braising mix, roughly chopped
  • ½ leaves from cauliflower (put the rest in with your leftover braising mix, or use in soups, stir fry, roasted veggies, etc.)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ – 1 leek, thinly sliced (ringwise)
  • 2-3 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ Tbs dried, roasted red peppers
  • 1 sprig chopped or 1 pinch/dash dried coriander
  • 1 sprig chopped or 1 pinch/dash dried dill
  • crumbled feta, to taste
  • fresh ground pepper medley to taste
  • sea salt to taste

  • Put all veggies and feta in small-med roasting pan or Dutch oven
  • Add feta
  • Drizzle generously with olive oil
  • Add herbs & spices
  • Toss well so everything is mixed and coated with oil and spices
Ready to go in the oven.
  • Bake, uncovered in 350° oven for about an hour and a half to 2 hours, stirring/tossing gently every 40 minutes or so, to make sure everything roasts evenly
  • It's done when potatoes & cauliflower are tender and golden browned, and greens are wilted and slightly crisped on the edges.
  • Enjoy!

    Done! Mmmmmm.
     Makes 6 servings (Though you'll probably want to double it – or more – for more than three people)
  • If veggies are browning faster than getting tender, cover with foil or roaster lid until tender, then finish under broiler for a few minutes for any final browning.
  • This dish goes GREAT with roast beef!
  • Add some chicken breast or medium-firm tofu to the mix to turn this into a one dish meal
  • Omit cheese, for a completely vegan dish, or substitute/add parmesan, goat or sheep cheese, etc to change it up a bit
  • Remember; Anything that you can roast in the oven, you can roast in the grill or fire!!
