I am a firm believer in the power of a roasted vegetable. Not only can virtually every vegetable be cooked in this way — no recipe required — but roasted vegetables are universally pleasurable to eat. Have a picky eater in the house? Want a break from your usual steamed veggie side dish? Try roasting your broccoli or green beans or cauliflower tonight. I think you're in for a treat.
Best way to roast veggies: Red/Green/Yellow Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, Corn on the cob -- cut in thick rounds, Parsnips, Green Beans/String Beans, Mushrooms, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, Squash, Zucchini, Onions
