SO HOW'D IT GO?

Sorry, didn't like this one.  Tried to spice it up but it didn't help much.  We originally had it for a main dish and it was way to bland.  DH had it as a side w/ a burrito the next day & it was ok.  Won't make again.

I was skeptical of this recipe because it didn't have a lot of seasonings but it was really good.  I used rosemary and garlic flavored olive oil and used all sweet potatoes instead of the white potatoes.  I am sharing this with my non-veg friends.

I didn't bake it at all - threw it in a frying pan with the spices/seasonings suggested by other posters and it was lovely! Made it with zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, butternut squash, and chickpeas.

Yeah, people, listen to LongLiveLove...CUT THE POTATOES SMALL!  I too learned the hard way-oops!  The recipe is simple, elegant, and wholesome.  Good stuff.  Next time i'm adding fresh mushrooms and an onion.  I added some cauliflower but otherwise followed the recipe, seasoned with salt, fresh black pepper and some red pepper flakes.

This was a very easy recipe to make. I added celery, red onions, and mushrooms, but forgot the garlic (oops). I seasoned with Mrs Dash original, and baked for only 20 minutes (I don't like my veggies mushy), and the dish came out tasty... Not 'sex in my mouth' good, but I will most likely make it again.

I made this last night and it was very good.  Very simple and lets the vegetables natural flavors shine.  I seasoned it with lots of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a little oregano.  It also tasted good with hot sauce :D  I do suggest cutting up the potatoes pretty small or they take longer to cook....I learned that the hard way.
A wholesome dish and a good way to get some fiber in

i used rice vinegar instead of olive oil, too. i can't believe how good this turned out! it was incredibly filling and soo delicious. i added mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, oregano, basil, pepper and a little bit of cayenne pepper so it'd have a bit of spice. i cheated a little and threw a handful of feta in my bowl (it was almost vegan!) after it was cooked, along with some huge slices of avocado and some spike.

I really liked the idea of this recipe!  It was so easy to use just whatever I had on hand!!  I used a yam instead of a sweet potato and added shallots, mushrooms and squash.  Very filling.  Instead of so much olive oil, I also added rice wine vinegar to avoid anything sticking to the pan

I can't believe no one else has reviewed this. I LOVE this recipe. It is very filling and so delicious. Tonight I'm going to put broc and mushrooms and probably an onion. Serving it with a salad makes a great meal. I like Mrs. Dash's garlic and herb seasoning on it, too.
