Roasted Winter Vegetables with Dal gravy

Over the past few days D has been quite content eating the Smoky black beans and has appreciated their versatility enormously, so have I, but I wanted something different on my plate.
We have a load of winter root vegetable that I decided to chop and roast them in the oven.
Its not the first time we’ve had roasted winter vegetables, the difference with this one and the one I’ve made in the past was very slight in that I coated the vegetables with Tamari sauce.

I served the roasted vegetables with some Dal gravy. The Dal gravy was not particularly complimentary. D said it was like a 'currified cappuccino'. I woudn’t go that far, but agree it was not suited to the meal we had in front of us.
Roasted Winter Vegetables
Garlic cloves, peeled
Chopped leeks
Whole Chestnut mushrooms
Chopped potatoes
Peeled shallots
More vegetables
Chopped potatoes
Chopped carrots
Chopped parsnips
Olive oil
Dried thyme
1 tablespoon Tamari (or soy sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to its highest setting.
Mix all the vegetables with vegetable oil, a little dried Thyme, Tamari and pepper to taste and place in a large ovenproof dish. Roast in oven for 45 minutes to an hour, or until vegetables are tender. Serve immediately with a good gravy.

  9. Where do you buy Tamari sauce? I usually dust my root veg with ground cumin and cinnamon but I am loving the sound of this.


  10. Thank you so much for coming by my blog Lena.

    Thanks Domestic Goddess Wannabe aka K,
    I like the sound of your serving suggestion.
    I used to get Tamari from the Chinese specialist grocers, but nowadays most of the larger supermarkets in the U.K sell/stock them.

  11. Those roasted vegetables look delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe, as I'll be sure to try it out!
    Happy vegetable gardening!

  14. Thank you so much Emily.
    Lovely to make your acquaintance.

  15. One of our "go to" meals is roasted veggies. I usually toss them with a little bit of barbecue sauce. Not enough to really taste, but it gives them a little extra something. A loaf of homemade bread and a pan full of roasted veggies is so comforting.

  16. Thank you so, so much Xylia.
    I must try roasting veg with some BBQ sauce, but I have to admit - BBQ sauce is not something i've ever used in my cooking. I think its about time, I had a go though.
