Roasted Shallots

I love roasting all kinds of vegetables but never roasted shallots. I had some shallots left over from making fried rings and decided to give these a try. The idea comes from Bon Appetit!

Roasted Shallots

Preheat your oven to 425° F. Place the whole shallots, separated if needed, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Next time I will peel some of the outer skin but not all of it. Roast for 45 to 60 minutes or until the flesh is very tender. Remember these are red so will have a different color as compared to garlic. Allow to cool and remove from skins and use in vinaigrettes, sauces or condiments.

Bon Appetit gives three suggestions for using these roasted shallots: 1) fold into pasta with bacon, lemon and Parmesan; 2) slice, toss with a little red wine vinegar, then layer onto a steak sandwich; 3) chop and stir into seasoned cooked beans.
