Recipe: Oven Roasted Vegetables


The great part about this recipe is that you don’t have to do any special shopping for it! Simply take a look in your refrigerator vegetable drawer and roast whatever awaits you. 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 — it only improves the flavor!


Use all or any combination of vegetables (enough to fill one large baking sheet):


  1. Wash and cut  vegetables into 1-inch pieces.
  2.  In a large bowl, toss vegetables with oil and fresh basil, oregano, thyme or any fresh or dried herb, with pepper and salt to taste (if on sodium-restricted diet, limit added salt).
  3. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4.  Roast in a 400 degree oven for 20 – 30 minutes. Shake two to three times for even cooking.
