Roasted vegetables. My new love. Who would ever have dreamed, that I would long for the days that I could eat roasted vegetables? I wrote about this on Examiner.com.
I wrote that roasted shallots with green beans is divine. And it is.
I wrote about trying brussel sprouts in butter sauce. I ate two. Then I put the bowl down. It was too much cabbage in my mouth. I thought about this for a while. When I picked up the bowl again, the ants had invaded. (This is FL). I threw the rest down the drain.
Then I read about roasted brussel sprouts. I had to try them. The sell point was to cut the brussel sprouts in half. So, I cut the core off, and soaked them in water for 10 minutes, so any cling-ons could be set free. I cut them in half, and tossed them with olive oil, then sprinkled some kosher salt. Approx. 30 minutes in a 400 F oven, and I dug in. I liked them, but limit myself to about 4 at a time (8 halves). After that I lose interest. But hey, that is more brussel sprout than I have ever eaten. Ever.
I went to the store to buy more brussel sprouts. They were out. But I met a lady, who told me she did the same with green beans. I tried it, and don't know how I didn't think of this. I added more sliced shallots with the green beans, and I ate a pound one night.
Last time I went shopping, I didn't have enough money for shallots, but I bought a sweet onion. I tried it tonight. Chopped sweet onion, roasted with green beans. Yum!!! I had serious thoughts about roasting the rest of that onion. It may happen, soon. I don't mind if I can't ever again afford shallots, as long as there's sweet onion around.
Anyways, I got a new recipe idea that I'll post soon. In the meantime, check out my articles on Examiner.com I wrote that roasted shallots with green beans is divine. And it is. . You may just get a new idea, that you'll share back with me. Please?
