For Dinner Tonight

This one is an adaptation of a recipe from my awesome mother-in-law- who adapted it from an "Original Fast Foods" recipe.
It is super easy and super yum and calls for basically whatever you have around!

Rainbow Roasted Veggie Potatoes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Chunk and chop whatever good veg you have into a bowl.
Some of my faves for this:
red onion
whole garlic cloves
yellow squash
asparagus (cut in two inch sections)
fresh or frozen green beans
chopped and seeded roma tomatoes
red, yellow or green peppers
baby carrots

Drizzle in some olive oil and toss to coat. Spread veg mix onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper if desired). Put in hot oven for about 40 minutes, stirring at 20 minutes.
While veg roast, chop, boil and mash potatoes (red are my favorite- I leave the skins on, whatever you have will do) with a little butter, sea salt and chicken broth, vegetable broth or coconut milk.
Serve roasted veggies over mashed potatoes.

Originally there was a gravy that went over this, but we love it without the gravy and just nixed it altogether.

You can also substitute the mashed potatoes for mashed sweet potatoes or yams.
