Roasted Vegetables
Created by Govind Armstrong
Sometimes a single herb can make a dish fly. For this one in particular...it's tarragon!
Servings: Makes 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds pearl onions
  • 2 bags (1 pound) baby carrots
  • 16 sprigs large thyme
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 ounces mixed wild mushrooms (cremini, shiitake and oyster)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh tarragon leaves
Directions
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add onions. Blanch 2 minutes; drain in a colander and let cool. Trim stem and root ends, then slip onions out of their skins.

Preheat oven to 450°. Place onions and carrots each on a separate baking sheet with sides. To each sheet, add 8 thyme sprigs, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss until vegetables are coated evenly. Roast 25 minutes, tossing vegetables several times until lightly caramelized and slightly tender; cool.

Quarter cremini mushrooms; remove stems from shiitake mushrooms and slice caps; slice oyster mushrooms. In a large, deep skillet over high heat, melt butter and sauté mushrooms until tender, about 4 minutes. Add roasted onions, carrots, broth and vinegar. Cook, tossing vegetables with a large spoon, until broth and vinegar have evaporated and vegetables are heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Add tarragon and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss.
