Roasting is a simple way to bring out the wonderful flavors of your vegetables.  Is is a simple technique that works with almost every veggie out there!

Toss (or spray with cooking spray) with a bit of olive or other oil and season with salt/pepper or your favorite seasonings. I always add some garlic powder!   Heat your oven to 400 and place veggies in a single layer on a sheet pan. Roast for 15 minutes, turn veggies over with a spatula and roast for another 15 minutes.

Fun Flavors:

  •  Soy Sauce, Toasted Sesame Oil and 5 Spice Powder
  • Use a couple tablespoons of Italian Dressing in place of the oil/spices
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Chili Powder, Garlic
  • Italian Seasoning, Garlic
  • Wing Sauce and Garlic Powder

Roasted Veggies are great to have on hand for use in sandwiches and salads.  They are a delicious addition to soups and stews and pasta.  Add a bit of protein or some cooked beans, serve over brown rice, polenta or mashed potatoes.
