All the kids in my son’s kindergarten class had to send in their favorite recipe and the teacher made each child a personal book with their picture on it to give their moms for mother’s day. My son’s recipe was the Delicious Vanilla Cupcakes from Sweet Utopia. He is very excited there’s a vegetarian girl in his class–Swathi–and this is her recipe. I’m baking it for dinner tonight, with some vegan chicken patties.
6 red potatoes, quartered
2-3 carrots, sliced at an angle into chunks
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of cayenne
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Scrub potatoes and carrots. Cut up the vegetables and place in an 8×8 baking dish. Mix oil and spices together in a small bowl and drizzle over the vegetables. Mix until evenly coated. Cover pan and bake 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake until tender and slightly crisp. You can also use sweet potatoes, parsnips, squash. Recipe by Swathi’s mom.
