Directions for vegetables

Peel and chop all vegetables.

With a bit of oil, salt and pepper, put the sweet potato in the oven at 200° for about 40 minutes. Make sure to mix them every ten minutes. When they are soft all the way through take them out of the oven and set them aside.

In a large skillet, fry the vegetables on medium heat. Start with the vegetables that need the most time to be cooked. When all vegetables have been added, add in the garlic so that it will be finished at the same time as the vegetables but not get burnt.
