Roasted Veggies

This isn't really a recipe, but an idea. I'm sure you've discovered by now the joy of roasted veggies. They are easy, delicious, and healthy. You can use any vegetables that you like. You just put some olive oil on a baking sheet, add prepared vegetables of your choice, add salt and pepper and drizzle with more Olive oil. You can other seasonings of your choice. We like to add garlic or garlic salt sometimes. Toss with your hands and roast at 375 or 400 until veggies are tender. It usually only takes about 20-25 minutes. Easy. Some of our favorites: Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms, Potatoes (of course- just cut like fries), and our favorite is sweet potatoes. They are a little hard to peel, but worth the effort. Just peel and cut like fries. Then make a dip with mayonaise, lemon juice and garlic. Oh my, it's good. Happy roasting!

I absolutely love roasted veggies and only learned about them in the past year. Mom, those sweet potato fries are delicious! I even like them w/o the dip, they're so good.
