Roasted vegetable casserole, deliciously flavored with Italian herbs, oil and cheese. Baked in the oven so that all the aromas and flavors blend well. A top recipe for Christmas.
When I think of Christmas in my past, I think of roulade. One of the recipes that my mother was likely to make at Christmas dinner. Or ham, also a faithful table companion during the Christmas season. The desserts, I have a lot ice cream rolls eaten as dessert and as an appetizer we ate shrimp or salmon salad with cocktail sauce as only my mother can make it. That’s just so good.
I remember enjoying the Christmas season, to go to church where I sang a lot of Christmas songs and after that it was really Christmas for me. The snow in my remembrance it was there was every year (though I see so little pictures with real snow) the family who came to visit and the beautifully decorated tree. I enjoy the Christmas fun. But I still can’t remember what kind of vegetables we eat. Maybe they were not served (although I can’t imagine my mother skipping vegetables) or they are repressed in my memory (;-)).
So now I’m making sure that my children can no longer say that, hereby “Boys in 2015 we ate roasted vegetable casserole.” So that problem is also solved.
In my Foodybox I found a lovely piece of Old Amsterdam cheese and of course I could store that too long (cheese is eaten real fast here anyway). And because there is so much flavor in this particularly cheese and these vegetables could really use additional flavor I used the cheese in this recipe. That proved to be a good choice and one that I can definitely recommend!
- roasted vegetables casserole are very nice to see, especially if you combine different colors. In this case I used the purple eggplant, red tomato, white fennel and green zucchini.
- Vegetables from the oven which can have a bland flavor and it is important that you flavor them well with salt, pepper and herbs.
- The vegetables can turn too brown, so cover them with aluminum foil when you see that happen.
