Prep time: 20 minutesCooking time: 15 minutesTotal time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup
fresh vegetables per person (choose one vegetable or a mix of several – see list below)
1⁄2 teaspoon
vegetable oil (per cup of vegetables)
sprinkle of salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Wash vegetables, peel if desired, and cut into similar sized pieces. Smaller pieces (about 1/2 inch thickness) brown more and cook more quickly. Long thin pieces (asparagus or beans) can be left whole.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Prepare a baking sheet that will hold the vegetables in a single layer. A metal baking sheet without sides allows more browning. A covering of foil will make cleanup easy.
  4. Toss the vegetable pieces with just enough oil to make them shine.
  5. Spread the vegetables on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  6. Roast until tender and slightly browned on the edges. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the pieces. Thin pieces (asparagus or beans) may take 5 minutes; pieces about 1/2 inch thick take about 15 minutes.
  7. Stir or turn about halfway through the roasting to obtain more even browning.
  8. Remove to a serving dish and sprinkle lightly with salt or seasoning of your choice.
  9. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Try vegetables like: beets, Brussels sprouts, carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, peppers, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, squash and more.
  • Try additional seasonings like: thyme, rosemary, oregano, balsamic vinegar, and lemon juice.
