HOW TO ROAST VEGETABLES

Roasted vegetables are a fabulous way to add diversity, easy to prepare and you can keep them in the fridge to use throughout the week for different meals.

Making a big batch of roasted vegetables really helps you to be creative, especially if you do not have a lot of time on your hands.   The great thing about roasting is that you can use any type of vegetables that you enjoy.  Normally I like to use butternut squash in the mix, but in this instance I did not have any. 

Take into consideration that hard vegetables take longer to cook than soft vegetables.  When you chop everything up cut the hard vegetables into smaller sizes than the softer options.

>> NOTE>> Check on the veg from time to time once you have put it in the oven.  Take the tray out and give the veg a stir, this is so it doesn’t burn and everything cooks evenly.  This recipe uses a lot of ingredients and as you can see from the video the tray is full.
