Preparing another recipe for baked vegetables – step by step
Before you get your hands on this recipe, the first thing you know is that you have two ways to prepare it.
In case you have little time to dedicate to this dish, the best thing you can do is a previous step: boil all the vegetables (except the spinach and the chard that are made in less time) once you have washed them well. The cocéis for about 10 minutes, the Retiráis and we pass to place them on a container suitable for the oven with a little olive oil and until they take the point that you like.
If you have enough time, I recommend you cook everything directly in the oven. This way, less vegetable properties are lost and the flavor is kept more. For everything to be cooked evenly it should be cut in smaller sizes, more or less similar, especially potatoes, carrots and broccoli. Pour some olive oil on top and season to taste before taking them to the oven for 40 minutes at 180 º.
