Blog Party #19: Comfort food

Stephanie over at Dispensing Happiness is hosting the next blog party for comfort food. For me I like hot-out of the oven-wholesome foods that act like a big duvet, so for my comfort food on a stick (so to say) I have made roasted carrots and jacket wedges. And they're really easy to make just cut up carrots into 3/4inch rings and potatoes into wedges (about 8 per potato though it depends on how big your spuds are - mine usually fit comfortably in my hand). Put them into a roast pan with a little olive oil and some herbs (rosemary, thyme....whatever you like) and then roast for 45min at 180°C until the vegies are soft and caramelizing round the edges (yes, thats the posh way of saying burning a bit). If you want a dip mayonaise is really great but I also drop 4 or 5 cloves of garlic still in their skins into the roasting pan and then squeeze out the garlic flesh and mash it with the mayo. And to drink? A nice glass of port, also warming and goes really well with the mellow garlic flavours. I actually made a whole batchfull of these little delights for dinner and felt great curled up on my sofa, as the snow drifted down, dunking and sipping!!

Mmmmm.... roasted potatoes and carrots. My mum used to make something similar with some boiled egg thrown in for good measure.
Cheers! :-{>
