NNMC Increase Produce: Try Roasting

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite, go-to methods for cooking any vegetable is roasting. It’s simple and, once you know the basic recipe, the possibilities are endless. In general, you toss whatever vegetable(s) you’ve chosen with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other spices or herbs you like. Then you spread them out in one layer on a baking sheet and roast in a 400 °F oven for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. The cooking time will depend on the vegetable(s) you’re using and how big or small you cut the pieces.
