Jalepeno Roasted Vegetables

A couple of weeks ago I went to our local farmers' market and picked up some fabulous looking produce. I bought purple carrots, regular orange carrots, jalepeno peppers, black jalepeno peppers and some delicious chicken and apple sausage. I got home and tried to think of a delicious way to bring those components into a cohesive meal and came up with jalepeno roasted vegetables with barbequed chicken and apple sausage. It turned out to be such a unique and delicious meal! Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Isn't that produce beautiful? I had never found purple carrots before and just thought they were gorgeous! They don't taste any different, but they sure are pretty!
To make the vegetables:

  • Carrots, sliced
  • Potatoes, sliced
  • 1 green jalepeno, sliced
  • 1 black jalepeno, sliced
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Place carrots, potatoes and jalepenos in a large bowl. Mix together coconut oil, salt, pepper and chili powder. Pour over veggies and toss to coat. Don't worry if the coconut oil clumps up a bit - it will all melt and distribute once its in the oven.
  2. Place veggies on a large baking tray lined with tin foil. Make sure they are in one even layer. Bake in preheated oven for 25-35 minutes or until the veggies are tender.

To make the sausage you'll just need your favorite sausage and some yummy BBQ sauce. Preheat your bbq to medium heat. Grill sausage until cooked through then brush with BBQ sauce to finish.

Pile the veggies in the middle of a plate, top with sausage and then pile on a few more of the roasted jalepeno rings. Voila! A super easy, simple and flavourful dish full of seasonal, local ingredients.

Happy Cooking my Friends!
