How To Roast Your Vegetables For Better Flavor
I was standing in line at the grocery store the other day and the woman behind me was looking at my purchases and she said half-jokingly: "Brussel Sprouts - who eats those?" I told her that I do, and we got into a conversation about how I prepare Brussel Sprouts - which is roasted.
I roast almost all of my vegetables; It just brings out the flavor better. From Brussel Sprouts to carrots - squash to parsnips, a little time in the oven improves most things.
How do I do it?
- Peel, trim, and cut your vegetables to a similar size. You want them to roast some-what evenly.
- Place them on a half-sheet pan.
- Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with fresh-ground pepper and Kosher Salt.
- Toss to coat.
- Place in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes - or until done.
