Easy Roasted Vegetables

Recipe photo courtesy of Marcus Nilsson

Slide a tray into the oven on Sunday, and eat roasted vegetables with grains, pastas, and salads (or as a side with anything) all week. Simply cut them so they cook uniformly: Denser vegetables, like potatoes and carrots, should be a little smaller than ones with more water, like zucchini. Slice tomatoes in half and roast them open-side-up to retain their juices.

Cook's Notes

Whether you're making one kind or a combination, be sure to spread them in a single layer and not crowd them, to prevent steaming.

Adjust the quantity of the ingredients depending on what you have, the flavors you like, and the number you're serving.

    This is my favorite way to eat veggies. I like to roast 2 lbs of baby carrots and keep them in the fridge for munching. They’re good warm or cold! I roast baby carrots by themselves because of the quantity I want, but I also like a mixture of zucchini, eggplant, onions, and red bell peppers so I roast those all together on two sheets. I also love this method for Brussels sprouts which I cut in half and roast cut side down. For beets I cut off the tops (greens) near the beet and wrap in foil before roasting. After roasting peel the beets by rubbing the skin off with a paper towel. I love the sweetness that comes through when beets are roasted.

      To be clear, I mean I wrap the beets in foil for roasting, not the greens.
