Oven roasted potatoes was the second dish I learned how to cook. My dad taught me and if he can make this anyone can. I like to roast many vegetables and it’s the same process. It’s a delicious way to experiment with your favorite vegetables and spices. Roasted vegetables and potatoes sides while with every meal. Why not start your busy weekend morning with a great nourishing breakfast to give your day a boost.
If you are going for hash browns then use regular potatoes eg: white or Yukon gold potatoes
My favourite vegetables to roast are:
1 or 2 Tbsp of grapeseed oil or oil of your choice
Spices option 1:
Spices option 2:
Preheat oven to 420
In a bowl combine oil and spices. Cut vegetables to bit size and mix with oil and spices till evenly coated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the vegetables evenly.
Potatoes take about 20-30 minutes and most other vegetables take about 15- 20 minutes
My dad always used seasoning salt, simple and delicious.
Thanks Dad for this life lesson.
This recipe is truly Canadian, Blueberries and Maple syrup. This sauce tastes just like blueberry pie filling and is really healthy. Use this sauce on plain cheesecake, pancakes or whatever strikes your fancy.
I am a true Canadian and I love winter. Snow makes me feel like nine years old again. I love snowboarding, cross-country skiing, sliding, skating, building snowmen, building snow forts and shoveling. I can’t forget to mention how truly beautiful snow is.
I always have frozen blueberries in my freezer, I used to pick enough to last me the winter but now I buy them.
Frozen blueberries ( wild Canadian)
Arrowroot flour (or substitute cornstarch or tapioca starch)
Optional: lemon juice, lemon zest, cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg
In a pot, lightly coat berries with maple syrup and bring to a light boil. Add lemon and spices, if using. In a small bowl mix egual amounts of water and arrowroot flour. Add a little at a time to the sauce and stir. The sauce should thicken.
