We do this all the time now.
It feels like a lot of work with all the peeling and cleaning and chopping and whatnot, but yum, it's
so worth it. The kids love them and Josh has even been known to eat a stray roasted vegetable or two. But only when no one is looking. He wouldn't want me to think he actually likes them. Then I might make them for him all the time. Vegetables. All. The. Time. (gasp)
There are many different vegetables that can be roasted, but we usually go with these:
You can do peppers too - any color works. I threw them in for some prettiness in
this batch, but personally, I think cooked peppers are bad. Very very bad.
Anywho, add 2-3 tbps of olive oil and a small amount of salt and mix.
For some reason, asparagus seems to come out better when it's roasted alone. But don't feel bad for the asparagus, I kinda think they like to do their own thing.
Roast in a preheated 450 degree oven for 20 minutes. Shake the pan and keep roasting for another 5-10 minutes. Cool slightly and eat. Straight from the pan is okay.
