Baked Root Vegetables
In the Nordics, root vegetables abound in the autumn and many of them last throughout the winter if stored and stored correctly. Most can be boiled and some are good for pickling, but here we will bake them in the oven with herbs and garlic. When they are exposed to heat – whether boiled, fried or baked – they become sweeter. Baked root vegetables can accompany many dishes. You can eat them with meat, poultry or fish. Vary and use the herbs and root vegetables you prefer.

  • 5 clove garlic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  2. Put the vegetables in a baking pan. Add oil, herbs salt and pepper and massage it over the vegetables.
