I stumbled across this recipe online and was immediately drawn to it's ease of preparation plus any time you roast vegetables in your dutch oven they are bound to be good. I scaled back the amount of vegetables from the original recipe but you can easily add more if you like, just try not to pile them too deep in your oven or they will steam rather than roast and caramelize. In my 12 inch dutch oven they baked for a total of 40 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and the lid completely covered with briquettes. Add a handful of dried cranberries to dress it up for your holiday table.
