Bunkerdown Brussel Sprouts & Other Roast Veg

There is a huge secondary storm rolling into Seattle this evening and in preparation I headed to the grocery store in order to buy enough Brussel Sprouts to help me ride it out. Actually, I picked up my mom and took her to the grocery store because her car was already stuck in her garage which is at the bottom of a steep driveway. I did however want to pick up more Brussel Sprouts. I didn't eat any yesterday and so I had to pick some up! When I got to the co-op, I learned the Brussel Sprouts were snowed out. Not snowed out as in destroyed, but snowed out of delivery (phew!). That meant I probably would be able to find some, somewhere. And I did, naturally. Thankfully, it was at the second grocery store that we needed to go to anyways. Otherwise, I would have raced against the storm clouds that were zooming ominously across the sky towards us to find some.

Bunkerdown Brussel Sprouts and Roast Veg

3 blue potatoes, chopped
10 cloves garlic
2 cups brussel sprouts
1 cup cauliflower
8 baby carrots, halved
3 mini bell peppers
1 cup button mushroom
2 tbsp. peri peri seasoning
.25 cup olive oil


Preheat Oven to 375. Combine all ingredients in a large glass baking dish. Bake for 45-1hr, until the veggies are to desired level of tenderness.

Optional: 30 minutes into cooking, drizzle a combination of 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil and 2 tbsp grain mustard (mixed) over the vegetables and toss to coat. Return to cooking.

  3. Nice new website!! Enjoy the snow...we may be snowed out too. Waiting to see if we got canceled. If so, will just have to get in some more snorkeling....

  4. I adore both roasted roots and veggies, and Brussels are one of my VERY favorites. Right now I'm eying the last three stalks of Brussels in the garden and will harvest them Christmas morning for our Christmas Feast. I plan a simple pan roasting with garlic, olive oil, sea salt and freshly crushed dried sweet pepper flakes.

    Your roasted recipe will be my New Year's Day Feast - Thank you!

  5. I followed you here!!! :) Glad I didn't miss that memo!!

  6. I loved running in Seattle when it snowed and the city would come to a stand still. I lived on top of Queen Anne and would run out to Discovery Park through the trees, down to the water and back. Your cooking is inspiring because of your keen sense of seasonality! The roasted root vegetables is spot on for a snowy day!

  7. Thanks JP. I love your blog too. It was alot of (cold) fun to run around in the snow. I prefer it, over the rain for sure. We ran at Discovery yesterday! The roasted root veg were the perfect (healthy) comfort food!
