{cinnamon, apples, veggies, maple syrup... :P}

one of my favorite things about winter is that you can make all sorts of delicious food in the oven. yesterday i tried this new recipe and we all enjoyed it so of course i'm sharing it with you all. you know me. :)
i think this would make a perfect potato/vegetable dish for your christmas table since it has cinnamon and cranberries etc.

Preparation time: 20 min.

Cooking time: 1 hour.


Festive Roast Vegetables

3 Granny Smith apples, cored, cut into 8 wedges

2 medium red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1" (2.5 cm) pieces

1 cup (250 mL) whole baby carrots

1 cup (250 mL) rutabaga, cut into 1" (2.5 cm) pieces

1 medium parsnip, peeled, cut into 1" (2.5 cm) pieces

1 medium red onion, cut into 8 wedges

1 red pepper, sliced

1 cup (250 mL) CAMPBELL'S® Ready to Use 25% Less Sodium Beef Broth

1/3 cup (75 mL) maple syrup

3 tbsp (45 mL) olive oil

1/3 cup (75 mL) sweetened, dried cranberries

1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh rosemary leaves

1/2 tsp (2 mL) cinnamon

Combine all ingredients well in large mixing bowl. Place mixture into shallow 13" x 9" (34 x 22 cm) baking dish.


Bake at 400°F (200°C), stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender – about 1 hour. Remove from oven and stir mixture well.

Additional Information:

Tip: Just after baking, stir mixture gently and broil for 3 to 5 minutes or until vegetables begin to turn golden brown and caramelize.

Feel free to create new flavour combinations by using other vegetables – explore your market for locally grown produce. Just keep the overall quantity of vegetables the same, and replace them with ones that would cook in the same amount of time.

i didn't put rosemary in it as we're not big fans of it. i used chicken broth instead of beef broth. i also found that the apples got mushy when baked as long as the rest of it. i'd suggest adding the apples (and probably the red pepper too) in the last 15 minutes of cooking time.
delicious! :P
