$8 or Less Recipe - Roasted Vegetables

serves about 6

2 large potatoes, cubed
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 carrots, cut into small chunks
2 c frozen green beans or broccoli florets
2 c frozen corn or cauliflower florets
2 Tblsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

preheat oven to 400
in large (2 gallon?) zip bag combine everything except frozen vegetables
shake to coat
place in large roasting pan, roast for 30 min
add frozen vegetables and toss together with a large spatula
roast 30 more minutes or until all vegetables are tender
serve immediately

Depending on the vegetables you use, this is roughly $5.

Experiment with different oils and salts or other seasonings to make it your own.  I like Lawry's garlic salt, and some seasoned salt.  My friend uses a grinder that has garlic and pepper.  Some people have even used Old Bay for a little kick.  Vegetables are somewhat interchangeable too.  I don't care for green beans and corn like that, so I sometimes do broccoli and cauliflower.  Try it with squash or any other of your favorite vegetables.

Until Next Time.....
