Roasted Veggies

This is a excellent way to get your kids to eat veggies!! I have gotten my kids to try more veggies this way than steaming or boiling them. They will devour pretty much any vegetable this way and then it got them to realize that they aren't that bad tasting and now they will eat them steamed as well. We do this with any veggie but ofcourse cooking times of each veggie it different!!

Roasted Veggies
1 lb or more of your favorite veggie~we really like broccoli,green beans, and Zuchinni but great with any veggie
2-3 T. olive oil
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper

Place the veggies on a cookies sheet. Drizzle the oil over them then sprinkle with Kosher salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a 400 degree oven until veggies are tender. Broccoli and zuchinni take about 20 minutes but other veggies like carrots or green beans take longer!! Just watch and test them out!

I love roasted veggies and you can make them into soup (if there are any leftovers) by adding a little chicken stock.
