  • Slow Roasted Root Vegetables

    Thanks to our customer Lawrence Duncan for this delicious and heart-warming recipe!


    • 3 large potatoes
    • 3 large carrots
    • 3 large beets
    • 8 large garlic cloves, peeled
    • 2 tsp rosemary, fresh or powdered
    • 2 tsp cumin, ground
    • 1 tbsp black pepper, course ground
    • 2 tsp sea salt


    Preheat oven to 250 deg F. This is a "low & slow" recipe, which takes a little bit of patience, but well worth it! You can vary the ratio of vegetables to suit your tastes, as well as the choice and amounts of herbs and spices.

    Cut the potatoes, carrots, and beets into large chunks. The size of the chunks determines which vegetable cook the fastest: the potatoes and beets should be the largest chunks, with the carrots being a little smaller / thinner. You'll get the feel for the right size with practice.

    Place the chunked potatoes, carrots, and beets in a large mixing bowl, along with the peeled garlic cloves. Add oil and sprinkle in the spices, while stirring until all the vegetables are thoroughly coated.

    Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking tray, and place into the oven. Cook for about 2 hours, or until done.

    Serves: 3 - 4

    Preparation time: 2 1/2 hours

    • whatever seasonings that strike you at the moment - that's what I used last time, and it was great!

  • Strawberry Fruit Rollups


    • 1 cup Silk Vanilla Soy Yogurt
    • 1 pint strawberries
    • nonstick cooking spray


    Puree the strawberries in a food processor or your blender.

    Lay down the fruit roll-up sheet in the dehydrator and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the yogurt thinly over the drying sheet. Drizzle the pureed strawberries over this; use a toothpick to make marble effect. The measurements for ingredients are approximate; the overall goo should be about 1/4 inch thick. Dehydrate roughly 8hrs on 135. Cut into strips.

    if you have no dehydrator, spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Lay down the ingredients as described above. Cook at lowest oven setting (usually 250) for around 4-6 hours. Cut into strips.
