Roasting Vegetables

Roasting vegetables brings out the sweetness and intensifies flavor. You can roast all kinds of vegetables like eggplant, peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, and many more. These roasted vegetables can be mixed with pasta; added to sandwiches, eggs, potatoes, and rice, or tossed into a salad. It is especially delicious as a pizza or focaccia topping, or served as is. Roasting vegetables is simple. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the vegetables into halves or quarters depending on what you prefer. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the vegetables on the sheet and sprinkle with olive oil and salt. Toss the vegetables to distribute the oil and salt, and spread the vegetables apart on the parchment paper so the will brown quickly. Roast in the oven until the vegetables are soft, shriveled, and nicely caramelized on all sides.
