Default Roasted Green Beans

So I have been reading about roasting this and raosting that. GBs were on sale, got them, found a recipe on line and roasted them. They were amazingly delish. So glad I tried them, "Sam I am".

Which veggie should I roast next?

Cauliflower, brussel sprouts, brocolli, and carrots are all great roasted. Peppers are popular- I just can't do the sweet ones or they talk to me for hours.....

All of the above, plus asparagus, zucchini, eggplant, parsnips ... if it's in the grocery, I've tried roasting it. I've yet to come across a veg I don't like roasted, actually. Our go-to dinner around here is whatever is in the vegetable crisper, sprayed with a bit of olive oil, with a generous helping of black pepper, roasted.

Oh my goodness yes, it's the only way I'll eat it. Cut into flowerets, spread in a roasting pan, pour in a quarter cup of water or lemon juice, season any way you like and then roast for 15 minutes at 375. It's still a little firm but I like it that way. If you want it a bit mushier blanch it first and then stick it in the oven.

I also toss cauliflower in a little olive oil and add curry and a little salt. I love it!

All these things are good on the grill as well - asparagus can be tricky but one of my favorites!

In general I love roasted or grilled veggies because it seems to concentrate the flavor - in a good way.
