Roasting vegetables in the oven gives them a caramelized exterior and good flavor while keeping the inside moist and tender. 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 requires but roasted vegetables are also 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. I think you're in for a treat. This is an excellent side dish to almost any meal. It is healthy, and you can tailor it to fit any vegetables that are in season.
I do like to pimp the roasted vegetable just a little and THIS is the perfect way......
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp organic maple syrup
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1. Heat oven to 180 degrees. Pour olive oil, balsamic vinegar and maple syrup into a roasting tray. Season amorously with salt, pepper, paprika and vegetable spice
2. Roast the vegetables for 45 mins until tender, crispy and golden brown. Serve with protein of choice. Taste so good especially the broccoli !!!!
