Certainly! Here’s a simple and delicious recipe for Garlic Roasted Vegetables:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound (450 grams) of mixed vegetables (such as carrots, bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, and cauliflower)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme (or your favorite herb)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: grated Parmesan cheese for topping

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Prepare the Vegetables: Wash and chop the vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Make sure they are relatively uniform in size to ensure even cooking.
  3. Toss with Olive Oil: In a large bowl, toss the chopped vegetables with olive oil until they are evenly coated. You can also use a zip-top plastic bag for this step.
  4. Season: Add minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper to the vegetables. Toss again to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  5. Spread on a Baking Sheet: Place the seasoned vegetables in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Make sure they are not overcrowded; if necessary, use two baking sheets.
  6. Roast: Put the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for about 20-25 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and slightly caramelized at the edges. You may want to stir or shake the pan halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  7. Serve: Once the vegetables are roasted to your desired level of doneness, remove them from the oven. You can sprinkle some grated Parmesan cheese on top for extra flavor if you like.
  8. Enjoy: Serve your garlic roasted vegetables as a side dish with your favorite protein or as a healthy snack.
