Roasted Root Vegetables

I love roasted vegetables.  Roasting caramelizes the natural sugars that are in certain vegetables.  Roasting can also bring out a nutty quality in vegetables like broccoli and brussel sprouts.  I’ve roasted just about any and all vegetables  that I can get my hands on and I love them all!

IMG_1834Roasting vegetables is extremely simple.    Once you’ve roasted the vegetables of your choice you can eat them as a side, or keep them in your refrigerator to use in other tasty recipes though out the week.

IMG_1836A few quick prep steps and you’ll  be roasting your way to delicious.  I never make enough of these when I make them.  My kids pop them in their mouths like candy.

IMG_1847The number one way we enjoy roasted vegetables is as a side dish with fish or meat; add a salad and you have yourself an easy and delicious healthy meal!

  1. I must say that I just started making roasted veg! It’s amazing! It’s Delightful! It’s Delicious! My Diabetic person can eat almost as much as they want! Instead of S/P, try it with a Cajun Seasoning mix!

    1. OOh that’s sound very luverly! The more spice the better. Do you have a favorite Cajun Seasoning blend you buy or do you make your own?

  2. I love roasting veggies… the taste and the texture are relish. And it frees up some time to enjoy a glass of wine while dinner cooks! 🙂 PS ~ I’ve never used beets (they haven’t ever been my favorite) — you’ve convinced me to try them.

    1. Beets are one of my favorite vegetables, but I think I’m in the minority! Try them roasted and you might change your mind. 🙂 I just had a green eggs and ham moment there! HA! “Try them try them and you may try them and you may I say.”

    1. Good eye Karin! I usually use ground pepper, but used Lawrys seasoned pepper this time! Either tastes amazing 😉
