ROASTED VEGETABLES

Here is the EASIEST way to cook vegetables—roast them!

Roasted Beets

ingredients

2-3 bunches of fresh beets

water or broth

salt and pepper

olive oil (optional)

directions

Pre-heat the oven to 4000 F. Cut the leafy tops and the long skinny tails off of the beets. Wash the beets to remove the excess dirt. Place them in a baking dish. Add about 1 inch of water or broth. Cover tightly with foil. Bake for about an hour or until the beets are tender.

When the beets are slightly cooled, you can easily peel off the skins. Cut them into chunks, season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil.

Roasted Cauliflower 

ingredients

1 cauliflower head, cut into florets

olive oil

salt and pepper

grated Parmesan cheese

directions

Pre-heat the oven to 4000 F. Place the florets into a baking dish and drizzle with olive oil. (You can also spray it with olive oil using a “Misto” bottle.) Season with salt and pepper.

Roast for about 40-45 minutes until the cauliflower is tender. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and bake for another minute or two.

Roasted Sweet Mini Peppers

ingredients

1 bag of sweet, mini peppers

salt and pepper

olive oil

directions

Pre-heat the oven to 4250 F. Place the mini peppers in a baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 30-35 minutes stirring 1-2 times.

    During the summer, I put all the veggies on a skewer and get a nice char on the gas grill. Add shrimp and lean beef for protein.
