Baked vegetables

Baked vegetables


In order to have a more pleasant appearance, I cut the potatoes and the carrot with the modulated knife, a simple gesture but which gives an extra look to any plate made in this way.

In a heat-resistant bowl, place the sliced ​​vegetables and garlic. Separately in a bowl prepare 100 ml of water, with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, a teaspoon of vegeta (natural ampus I), salt and pepper. Mix the composition well and pour it over the vegetables, sprinkle aromatic herbs over it and put it for 35-45 minutes in the preheated oven at 220 degrees.

Leave them in the oven for the first 15 minutes covered with an aluminum foil and then uncovered to make a golden crust.

They are served both as a side dish and as a main course for a more dietary menu with an assorted summer salad. I wish you good appetite!

How to prepare whole chicken in the oven with vegetables and flavored butter

How to prepare the chicken for cooking in the oven

First of all, we need a & # 8220chicken grill & # 8221, as we find it in stores, ie without a head, neck and claws. In general, these chicks come quite well cleaned, but they still need to be inspected for flakes or lumps. You may need to burn them a little with a kitchen torch.

The chicken should be very well dried, so dab it all over with paper towels. If it is wet, the butter will not stick to the skin.

What spices and herbs do we use

Next we need soft butter flavored with some spices and herbs.

I used: salt, pepper, paprika, bay leaves and dried thyme, and as fresh plants rosemary and parsley. Of course you can make your own combination of flavors, according to your tastes.

But these are not all flavors in the tray! Inside the chicken, put 1/2 clove of garlic and 1/2 lemon with the peel. Our chicken will thus have great flavors both inside and out.

And before sending it to the oven, place the chicken on a bed of whole vegetables: potatoes, carrots, onions and lots of garlic. They will cook in the pan in the aromatic butter sauce formed in the heat of the oven. Somewhere halfway through the cooking time, add a little white or dry rose wine to the pan. Do you realize now, what fabulous flavors have been gathered in this recipe? Absolutely beautiful!

We will introduce some of the flavored butter under the chicken skin. So, gently put your fingers under the chicken's skin and lift it slightly, remove it from the meat. In the created space we insert the pieces of butter and massage lightly to distribute it over a large area.

Grease the chicken on the outside with the rest of the flavored butter. It will tenderize the meat and give a very pleasant aroma.

How long to bake a whole chicken in the oven

Well, this notion is a bit relative and depends on both the size of the chicken and the oven of each.

My chicken weighed about 2 kg and in my gas oven I baked it for the first 45 minutes covered with aluminum foil. I opened the oven, removed the foil and poured the wine. I put it back in the oven for another 45 minutes without foil. During this time I opened the oven door twice and sprinkled the chicken with the sauce from the pan to hydrate it, but also to get a beautiful color and make a great, crispy crust on top.

If your chicken is bigger or smaller, you will need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Baked lamb steak with vegetables. The simplest recipe.

I think you are already used to the fact that after Easter I publish some of the recipes I tested for the festive meal. And I'm going to start today with a recipe for Baked lamb steak with vegetables.

As I like simple, quick and tasty recipes, I chose to prepare the lamb meat bought from Selgros very simply this year, in the oven, with only a few vegetables. Simple, fast and tasty.

Some recipes suggest keeping the lamb in the stove for a few hours. But as the lamb has an already tender meat, it can be cooked directly as the meat is, just by adding some salt, aromatic herbs, a little oil and wine and ready with it, we put it in the oven. And especially we cook it slowly, at a lower temperature to finally have a piece of meat that actually melts in your mouth at how good it is.

For this recipe for baked lamb steak with vegetables, I was inspired by a recipe by the well-known chef Joseph Hadad who cooked a whole leg in the oven in a simple way but with an appetizing result. You will see below that video from which I was inspired.

I wish I could cook the whole meat like that, I still had a quarter of the back lamb that had the leg cut in half and I had to cook the rest of the meat anyway, so I put everything in the oven with some vegetables next to it and a steak came out. wonderful.

Pan-fried vegetables

I love vegetables in any form. The preparation I present to you today is one of my favorites, as it is super fast, with a delicious result. In addition, it is a dairy-free and meat-free garnish, perfect for those who fast.
If you like softer vegetables, keep them on the fire for a few more minutes. I like them more crunchy, so I don't even salt them during cooking, so they don't leave water. You can choose any combination of vegetables you want, calculate about 200-250 g per serving.

  • 1 eggplant (250 g)
  • 100 g mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 capsicum
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic

Eggplant to cut into cubes, peppers and onions, strips, and mushrooms, thicker slices.

Heat the oil in a deeper pan (a wok is best), then add the vegetables and keep on high heat for up to 5 minutes. Stir occasionally for even browning.

At the end add the crushed garlic, salt and turn off the heat.

Serve immediately, but they are extraordinarily good and cold (if they get cold).

  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon sweet, flavored paprika
  • 15 ml. olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon of pepper

  • 1 kg. potatoes (a variety recommended for baking)
  • 500 gr. young carrots
  • 1 onion (80 grams)
  • 1 fennel bulb (300 gr)
  • 15 ml. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to prepare chicken with harissa and baked vegetables

1. General rule when we cook meat, it comes from any animal: the first thing we have to do is bring the meat to room temperature. Otherwise, the cooking time indications are no longer valid and the meat is no longer cooked evenly. So, take the chicken out of the fridge at least 1 hour before we start cooking.

All right, in the meantime we're thinking about which tray to choose. It will have to be big enough for the chicken and all the vegetables for the garnish to enter at the same time. Ideally, it should be a tray (heat-resistant dish) with a lid. If we do not have, we will have to cover the chicken, during baking, with aluminum foil. Once we have decided on the tray, we have time to prepare the necessary ingredients for this chicken with harissa, baked at once with a wonderful garnish of vegetables.

Preparation of spicy pasta

2. In a blender jar or chopper, place the harissa paste. This pasta is a North African spice and has, above the spice, a delicious aroma. There is dry harissa, in the form of a mixture of spices, and this paste, which we use for our chicken. Depending on the region from which it comes, the composition of the harissa may differ, there are various variants. The basic ingredient is hot peppers and in addition to these, to a greater or lesser extent, harissa also contains cumin and cumin, paprika, tomato paste, garlic, coriander seeds, etc. Finally, I used 2 teaspoons of harissa tip and don't be afraid to do the same. It is not overly hot and has a superb aroma!

In addition to the harissa paste, I added in the blender the finely grated lemon zest and about 2-3 tablespoons of juice. I also put 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme leaves and 15 ml (1 tablespoon of olive oil. I also added paprika and ground coriander, coarse salt and pepper. I processed everything with the blender until I got a paste With this pasta, I seasoned the chicken.

Preparing the chicken

3. I took the chicken out of the package and quickly passed the kitchen torch everywhere where I saw discreet traces of feathers. I then wiped it with absorbent kitchen paper towels, all over the skin and inside.

4. I salted and peppered the chicken inside, then greased it with harissa paste. Inside, I put ½ lemon (grated peel and partially squeezed), 3 cloves of garlic and thyme sprigs.

5. Very conveniently, I passed the ends of the legs again through the “buttonhole” cut into the chicken's skin and closed the cavity again. I salted and peppered it on the outside and then greased it with the remaining paste first on the back, then on the chest, thighs and wings. I let the chicken on the mincer to soak in the flavor of the spice while I prepared the vegetables for the garnish.

Preparing vegetables

6. Once the chicken was seasoned, I turned on the oven and set it at 180 ° C, with ventilation or 190 ° C, static.

7. For this chicken with harissa, I chose to make a garnish of cooked vegetables, cooked at the same time as the chicken itself. I used potatoes, onions, fennel and young carrots, but you can also make other vegetable combinations. I cleaned, washed and cut the potatoes into quarters. I peeled the onion and cut it into 8. I also cut the fennel bulb into 8. I put the prepared vegetables in the tray I chose to cook the chicken. I sprinkled them with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and seasoned them with salt and pepper.

8. Carrots, being very fragile, I treated them differently. First, I cleaned them, scraping them gently, and I kept some of the leaves.

9. I put a pot of salted water on the fire and when I boiled, I added the carrots. I reduced the heat and cooked the carrots without boiling, until they were a little tender, without having been completely cooked, then taken out of the water, on a mincer. I added them to the chicken tray with harissa, along with the rest of the vegetables, towards the end of cooking.

Chicken with harissa & # 8211 cooking in the oven

10. I placed the chicken seasoned with harissa (v.p.5) in the pan, in the middle of the prepared vegetables (v.p.7). I wrapped the tray (I don't have a lid on this tray) and put it in the preheated oven at 180 ° C, at a medium height.

11. After an hour, I removed the foil / lid and added the partially cooked carrots to the pan (v.p.9). I set the oven to grill function and raised the temperature to 190 ° C.

12. I continued to cook the chicken in the oven for another 10 minutes, with the breast up. After these first 10 minutes on the grill function, I turned the chicken upside down and cooked it for another 10 minutes in this position. Finally, I turned it upside down again and finished it with another 10 minutes upside down, until it was splendidly browned. Each time I turned the chicken over, I took the opportunity to sprinkle a little of the vegetables with the aromatic liquid collected in the tray. In total, I baked this chicken with harissa for an hour and thirty minutes. At the end of this time, the chicken looked and smelled divine. Before serving, I waited another 15 minutes, as it should be done with any kind of roast meat.

SERVE

I served this chicken with harissa next to the garnish of ripe vegetables from the pan and it was absolutely divine.

Bake vegetables in the oven & # 8211 au gratin in the pan

I put the tray with vegetables in the preheated oven at 200 C. This will keep the temperature set throughout the baking. There is no need for aluminum foil or water in the tray. Vegetables will release water from their tissues & # 8211 so they will decrease in volume.

I let them bake for 45 minutes. After the first 20 minutes, I mixed them lightly with a spatula, so that other pieces reach the surface. I can't describe the flavors in the kitchen!

This is what this tray with au gratin vegetables looks like!

My family starts nibbling the pieces of it as soon as I take it out of the oven :). I can barely put anything else on their plates.

What a taste they have !! Sweet carrots, baked garlic, brown cauliflower & creamy and caramelized eggplants on the edges. A madness! If you are fasting, eat them as such or with a clove of garlic, along with bread, pasta or rice. If not, it works very well tzatziki sauce with yogurt and garlic and a piece of grilled meat.
