I took the submitter's suggestion and used vegetables I had on hand. I used sweet red pepper, zucchini, and vidalia onion. I chose not to use potatoes as I was already serving rice with my meal. I drizzled on just enough oil to coat the veggies before roasting. I used white balsamic vinegar, but only used a small amount. Even that amount threatened to overpower the vegetables. I halved this recipe AND skipped the potatoes and this still made a good bit - more than two servings. Because I was roasting a chicken, I needed to roast these veggies at 350 F. After one hour mine were done perfectly at that temperature.
The flavor of this dish is nice, but if I made it again I would cut way back on the oil and the vinegar. It called for far too much and the veggies were drowning. Also, the recipe will easily work for 6 people. It's a large recipe for four.
Like anonymous suggested I used what I had, which was 1 fennel bulb, 1 potato (about to sprout), 3 half used onions (I kept forgetting I had already started one), 3/4 of a red bell pepper, a half bunch of asparagus (slightly wilted), 1 zucchini, 8 cloves of garlic and 6 cherry tomatoes that had seen better days. I used just enough oil to coat, then before serving drizzled just a touch more and sprinkled with sea salt & a squeeze of lemon instead of the balsamic vinegar. This was a great way to clean out that veggie drawer! Even with only 1 potato my veggies served 4 with plenty leftover for tomorrow's lunch. Yum. (oh, baked at 400 for 45 minutes)
Omitted the peppers, used red potatoes (kept the skins on), cut back on the rosemary, and doubled the fennel as I'm crazy about it atm. As always, I used white balsamic vinegar. Very good. Thanks, anonymous!
I thought this was fantastic! Very aromatic while cooking, and the taste is very hearty, almost rustic with the rosemary and potatoes.
I stayed pretty close to the original recipe except that I used "Better than Bullion" which is sort of a thick goop instead of powdered bullion and I added some fresh ground pepper.
I'll definitely make this again.
this was pretty tasty but by the time the potatoes where cooked through, the veggies where practically mush. i cut back on the oil by a 1/4 and it still ended up being too much. i'd recommend starting with half of the oil and then adding more depending on how it looks the first couple of times you go to stir it. also, i think i would rename the recipes "Mediterranean Roasted Potatoes AND Vegetables" considering the veggies actually end up constituting about 1/3 of the total dish!
This was ok different kind of taste, Im not a fan of Zuccini so I just used the potatoes and peppers.
Very delicious! I didn't have vegetable bouillion so I used about 1 tsp. of Chicken bouillion. I also did not have the balsamic vinegar, peppers, fennel or zucchini. Instead of fresh rosemary, I used dried rosemary I had in the cupboard. Still the recipe came out delicious, even though I was missing a number of ingredients and substituted items. I tried broiling the potato mixture in the oven, but next time I think I will just bake for about 30+ minutes on 375 degrees.
I paired this recipe with the Mediterranean Pork Chop Recipe and it was a delicious combo - link:
Great recipe, very tasty potatoes!
