Holiday Foods...lets stick to the Roots

A simple little dish that I made on Christmas Day.


  • Brussels sprouts
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Red Onion
  • White Wine
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Chop all your vegetables into 1-inch pieces. You want them all to cook evenly. The Brussels sprouts should be steamed and cut in half (so try to make it match them). Place all vegetables into a big bowl. Coat with a good amount of olive oil. Then add all your seasoning. (You can get creative here).

Spread the vegetables out in a pan that can hold liquid. Coal the vegetables with a bit of white wine so there is liquid to cook in. You do not want them over over lap. Cover with lid or aluminum foil and roast for about 30minutes. Check to see if they are tender, put back in oven uncovered for another 5-10mins.

Have a yummy holiday!

  2. Hi Marisa! What an inspiration you are! I'm watching you on The Incurables. Now imagine my surprise when I recognize your lovely mom as my high school teacher. Tell her she looks wonderful. I remember when she got married and when she was pregnant with you! She won't remember me, but I remember her from Clara Barton. We all loved her; a total sweetheart.

    This recipe will be helpful for working women and bachelors.Do try this method and let me know your feedback.If u like without garam masala, try this recipe else follow this way. Nowadays i use my rice cooker for making pongal,pulao & biryani.The best thing i love in rice cooker is the aroma of the food it renders while boiling.
