Roasted Snowman Noses - and other Vegetables!



This chilly weather outside has certainly made me want to warm my tummy inside. This is a lovely and simple dish that will warm your heart and cause snowmen all over the Northern states to become "Sinus Challenged"!



Basic Roasted Vagetables
Preheat oven to 425.
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoon dried basil
1 cup baby carrots
2 stalks celery, chopped (I omit because my gag reflex goes on overtime when I even hear the word Celery)
2 turnips, peeled and quartered
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red onion, peeled and quartered
1 white onion, peeled and quartered
1 red pepper, halved and sliced
1 bulb fennel, washed and quartered

In a medium size bowl, stir together the melted butter, the minced garlic and herbs. Lightly coat the vegetables and place them in a large baking pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Enjoy this warm hearty dish with your favorite Chicken or Beef dish!

As you can see - I substituted some different veggies - I just used whatever I had in my veggie bin. Clean out your veggie bin today!

Trust me - Your snowman will feel honored to donate his nose to this worthy dish!

Your roasted veggies are way more colorful than mine! Stay warm! We are off today too and my dryer ran non-stop yesterday. It is a hoot trying to get Dae all dressed up for the snow!

I love roasted veggies - except I would need to leave the onions out!

Cute title for your post. Roasted veggies are so good! What a great picture of what I assume is your family - ? Your hubby just looks like a *really* nice guy - I can tell just by looking at him! And two adorable babies... lucky you :)

My husband has the same reaction to celery. So, we don't buy it much.

I am a "Veggie Girl"......they are some of my favorite foods! Roasting is the best way to eat them too!

Those look so good....I also love roasting cauliflower, broccoli, or asparagus:-)
