Roasted Vegetables


I love various combos of roasted vegies.

Lately, I've had roasted yellow squash with eggplant and a marjoram/olive oil seasoning. I also love roasted cauliflower and broccoli with chilli pepper flakes, olive oil, and salt. Oh yeah, and shredded brussel sprouts.

Anybody else have any interesting vegie combos that they like to roast and what seasonings you use?

  1. Butternut squash with sage,

    Fennel with orannge and dill,

    Balsamic Portaballo mushrooms with garlic, rosemary & thyme.

    That's a good start.


    1. Asparagus with either sesame oil or balsamic vinagar

      Cherry tomatoes with chives

      Corn (on the cob or sliced off in chunks) with basil or cilantro

      Carrots with cumin and smoked paprika

      1. A friend told me to thin apricot jelly out with water and then use that to coat the vegs to roast them. I haven't it tried it yet but thought it sounded great.

        1. Asparagus... this is pretty much the only way I eat asparagus now!

          Green Beans

          Mixture of cubed sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, etc., etc.

          Most times with roasted veggies, I don't even feel the need to season them with anything except salt and pepper, which says a lot, because I used to not like many vegetables at all!

          1. One night at Volo Restaurant in Chicago, I had a fabulous roasted vegetable dish made with new potatoes, radishes, carrots, rutabaga, etc, with smoked bacon and a good amount of butter.

            Roasted cauliflower is excellent, as are roasted Brussels sprouts.

              I love roasted cauliflower and roasted brussel sprouts. I was surprised at how good roasted cauliflower is. I also like fresh corn off the cob roasted. Swiss chard is also good but that migth be considered baked rather than roasted.

                Bacon makes everything taste better, even vegetables. But what do vegetarians use to cook their vegetables with . . . instead of bacon that is, and get the same taste?

                  Bacon is something I've learned to live without... Moosewood Lowfat Vegetarian Cookbook has recipes for different Roasted Veggie Combos, too!

                    My dad makes his own chipotles. I use those in anything that wants a smokey flavor. (They're dried and smoked, not in sauce.) They give a perfect smokey taste and are much healthier. I've even got my bacon-loving folks adding chipotles to pots of beans, instead of ham.
