We know we’re supposed to serve vegetables at every meal, but somehow, we run out of ideas for making them interesting. Our newest vegetable idea is a simple one: spread a variety of vegetables on cookie sheets, sprinkle them with oil, salt, pepper, and garlic, and roast until the edges begin to blacken. These roasted veggies keep well and are wonderful served warm or at room temp. It’s a no-fail idea!
