Roasted Vegetables

I’ve been doing roasted vegetables since I was married, so the early 90's, and we had our organic farm. Vegetables were always in abundance. Our farmer specialized in heirloom varietals. It was a treat. He took the average carrot and made it extremely sexy. Full of flavor, and packed with color. All the vegetables our farmer grew were wonderful. I don't think I can think of an easier, more sustainable meal other than roasted vegetables. It fills a hungry family, and the left overs can be tossed straight into your morning fritatta! Take the veg challenge... Enjoy!
