One of the first cookbooks I ever owned was Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home. I discovered this book when I was in my early twenties working for the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. Money was tight and idealism was high, and Moosewood fit right in with the scene.

These roasted potatoes and peppers were an early cooking staple in my first kitchen. I lived in Houston at the time, and this simple recipe worked for any crowd. I think I used to eat it as a main dish. Somehow I got by without protein back then.

These days, I serve this roasted vegetable medley as a side dish. The red wine vinegar yields a delicious flavor, and I’ve adapted just a few elements of the Moosewood version. I like to use a mix of colorful potatoes from my farm share, and I swap fresh chives for the rosemary in the original recipe. You can use any herbs you have on hand, such as parsley or thyme, to give these vegetables an extra boost of flavor.

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. You can makes these roasted potatoes and peppers as part of your meal prep on Sunday, and eat them throughout the week. They can be served as a side dish with dinner or as breakfast potatoes in the morning.
