The great part about this recipe is that you don’t have to do any special shopping for it. Simply browse your current vegetable inventory and roast whatever you find. You can eat these vegetables as a side dish, use them as a pizza topping or slip them between two slices of whole-grain bread for a sandwich. You can even make an entree by serving the vegetables with brown rice, quinoa or pasta. Don’t worry about overcooking your veggies, either: It only improves the flavor. Whichever way you use this recipe, you’ll be getting a good dose of vitamins C, A, E and phytonutrients.
