Roasted Veggies

IMG_1754But, Moooooom, I don’t like vegetables.

You’ll like these ones, kid.  These are not your diced and processed Jolly Green Giant frozen mixed veggies. This is the good stuff, with taste and texture. It’s not the typical microwaved mush you are used to.

Here we go.

ROASTED VEGETABLES (use any combination of the following)

8 Brussel sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half lengthwise

4 carrots, peeled and cut into thumb-sized pieces (split in half if too wide)

1/2 onion, cut into wedges and roughly separated

1/2 bunch of asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into thirds

1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into florets

1/2 head of broccoli, cut into florets

8 baby potatoes, cut in half

1/2 sweet potato, cut into 1cm thick rings

Whole mushrooms

Peppers, chopped into thumb-sized pieces

Zucchini, cut into 1cm thick rings

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

***

Put all veggies in a bowl. Pour olive oil over everything and toss well to coat. Place flat on ungreased cookie sheet. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 400F for 45 minutes. Gently flip veggies at 20 minute mark.

You will never want to microwave vegetables again.
