Carrots and Potatoes Roasted with Onion and Garlic

Russ Myers


Roasting vegetables brings out a wonderful caramelized flavor and creamy texture, that will pair nicely with your Thanksgiving turkey. Talk about true comfort food, this is it. I remove the delicious warm garlic from their papers and serve them with the roasted vegetables, or you can serve them on the side. This dish is a nice alternative to mashed potatoes, but takes no time at all to prepare. Peel, slice, dice, roast, eat. It’s that easy, you’ll be fearless and not feel food stranded in the kitchen. You’ll be a hit at your Thanksgiving dinner.
