Often times, I have clients tell me that they need new and exciting ways to cook vegetables. Roasting is one of the tastiest ways I like to make vegetables. Today, I wanted to talk about how easy it is to roast delicious veggies and potatoes!
When roasting vegetables, I set the oven to 400 degrees and then get to chopping. This blog is going to discuss potatoes, squash and zucchini. For the potatoes, I diced them up into small pieces. Placed them in an oven safe dish, topped with canola oil, ground pepper, thyme and garlic powder. About 30-40 minutes later (depending on how many potatoes you do) they are nice and soft. I recommend stirring them half way through the cooking process. If you like them to be a tad on the crispy side, leave them in a little longer till golden brown on the edges.
Roasting squash and zucchini is just as easy. These veggies were diced, placed in an oven safe dish and tossed with canola oil, ground pepper, garlic powder and oregano. I also cooked these at 400 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. If you like them a bit more firm, try cooking them for 15-20 minutes.
Next time you are at a loss of how to cook veggies in a tasty way…hopefully you will think of my blog!
*The photo of the potatoes and veggies in the oven also feature my baking sweet potatoes. I did a little batch cooking today. Maybe, I will write a blog on how to bake the best sweet potatoes ever in the future…if that’s something yall are interested in.
