Roasted Vegetables Ready to Serve

Roasted Vegetable Medley

I love versatility, using my imagination or current cravings to make something new out of something ordinary.  Vegetable medleys are the flexible foodie’s dream—utilizes what you have, gives everyone something they like (or will eat without a fuss), nutritionally well rounded, easily introduces new vegetables at dinnertime.  Choosing colorful varieties adds interest while roasting caramelizes natural sugars, developing flavors that complement any meal. Follow the suggested combination listed, or choose your favorite vegetables and spices to create an entirely new side dish each time you make it.

    Never in my wildest cooking dreams would I have roasted a radish. I look forward to roasting one of my home grown french radishes. Yum with a kick!
