As the weather gets cooler and the leaves begin to change colors, thoughts often turn to ... football! And nothing is more traditionally linked to the big game than the big tailgate parties that precede them.
This month, instead of turning to the traditional burgers, hot dogs and chips, I'm offering some options that you can enjoy without having to carry around a grill -- although you certainly can do that. Enjoy them before the game and even during if you can manage to save some for that long!
These roasted vegetables are great hot or cold, on their own or piled into pita bread for sandwiches.
1/4 c. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 lb. new potatoes
1 small delectica squash, seeded and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
1 medium eggplant, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 small zucchini, sliced
1 red pepper, cut into thin strips
12 grape tomatoes, halved
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large baking dish, combine the oil, garlic and seasonings. Add the potatoes, squash and onion and toss well to coat the vegetables with the oil. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and add the eggplant, zucchini and red pepper. Toss well to coat all of the vegetables with the oil. Place in the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and add the tomatoes. Toss well to coat all of the vegetables with the oil. Place in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot or cold as desired.
