Pick a Vegetable, Any Vegetable
When it comes to roasting veggies, most people think of potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots – your typical root vegetables. While these old favorites are solid options, you have a whole crisper full of vegetables just waiting for the oven. Bell pepper, celery and zucchini all make fabulous roasting options. So does pretty much anything in the cruciferous family, so feel free to go crazy with cauliflower, broccoli or everyone’s favorite, Brussels sprouts. And don’t forget onion and garlic for big flavor.
Roasted To Perfection
Roasting is hands down the easiest way to make tasty vegetables that even fussy eaters will enjoy. There are just a few simple rules to roasting perfection:
- Coat the vegetables well with a tablespoon or two of good quality olive, vegetable or coconut oil.
- Toss lightly with some salt, pepper and any favorite herbs and spices.
- Give them room in the baking dish. A crowded pan will result in vegetables that are more steamed than scorched.
- Roast until you see some charring.
