    I have been reading about the healthy benefits of some vegetables. I decided that more fresh vegetables couldn't hurt. I decided that pumpkin would be added to our menus. Since I couldn't find canned 100% pure pumpkin w/o sugar and spices, I bought a pie pumpkin and peeled and boiled it. It was very good. So I tried roasted pumpkin - so much better. My DH said it is better than squash (we both love squash.) I bought two more pumpkins since pie ones are small and they keep well.

    Then I decided to saute some radishes which I love and DH doesn't. Raw veggies are my favorite, but they hurt my stomach. DH loved the cooked radishes, too. They don't hurt my stomach. :)

    Yesterday, I roasted a sweet potato, carrots, and a baking baking potato all mixed together and coated with olive oil. I put them in a foil lined pan so I wouldn't have to wash the pan later. I left the pan uncovered so the veggies would brown a little.

    Then I sauteed egg plant, zucchini, fresh white mushrooms, leeks, radishes and a little bit of fresh jalepeno pepper. I added a dash of hot pepper flakes, sea salt, paprika and black pepper. When all were done, I served them together in one dish. Then I added sauteed cauliflower on the side. The vegetables were so tasty it was very hard to stop eating them. My DH like them so much he offered to wash the dishes to give me a break. He always dries them. He's a sweetheart. :)

    We have always eaten a lot of vegetables and now that I roast them, we will be eating them a lot more. :) I will keep trying different vegetable combinations. :)

    I posted this because it turned out so great for us, that I thought someone else might want to try roasted vegetables if they haven't already. Don't forget the pumpkin. :)

    I try so hard to eat healthy but don't know how to expand beyond what I already eat. Every time I try something new, it's like, "duh, that tastes good and wasn't hard to make"

    Prime example: peel sweet potatoes and slice paper thin. Spritz with olive oil and a bit of sea salt. bake at 400 or 425 until done. Voila... sweet potato chips. My kids love them.

    Thanks for the ideas. I bookmarked this.

    I've recently been making roasted sweet potato "fries". I peel the sweet potatoes, cut into sticks, toss with olive oil and garlic pepper. Lay out in a single layer on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. Turn with a spatula and bake another 5 minutes. Yummy!!

    Why didn't I think of cutting them into sticks. Are they match size sticks or chunkier?

    I roast this about once a week...everyone loves it! Take 1 cup of every veggie you can find. Into a 11x14" baking dish or larger - Peel (if you must) and cut each into approx the same size. Sometimes I julienne them all and sometimes I do a mix cut. Then in bowl add 1 c extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 c balsamic vinegar, 1 teaspoon ea of salt, pepper, celery seed, paprika; approx 1-1/2 tspn ea of rosemary, thyme, parsley and whatever other seasoning you like. Mix well and pour over veggies, toss to coat all. Roast at 375 degrees for about 1 hour, turning every 15 min. Remove from oven cover with foil until ready to serve. Usual fresh veggie mix is yams, carrots, celery, bell pepper, onions, 4 garlic pods, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, red potatoes, grape tomatoes, brussel sprouts, yellow squash and zuchinni.

    Great cooks in this group. Rosted veggis are so good.
    I use cooking spray (Pam) rather than olice oil for a different taste. when roasting potatoes add rosemary.

    Wow, I have no trouble finding regular canned pumpkin, our dogs also love it, so at mealtimes I give them a couple spoonfuls and it's good for them also.

    Your roasted veggies sound delicious, what temperature do you roast them at and about how long? Thanks

    I love roasted veggies. I cut up potatoes, onions, carrots, mushrooms, parsnips and sweet potatoes. Put them in a bowl and toss with olive oil, sea salt, rosemary and some thyme. Preheat the oven to 450. When the oven is hot, put in an empty cookie sheet and let it heat up for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, put the veggies on the sheet and put back in the oven for 15 minutes. Take out of the oven and cover with foil for 15 minutes. Then enjoy.

    I roast the veggies at 450 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes. It depends on how big you cut them and how tender you want them. Enjoy. :)

    I'm amazed. Firstly that you buy pumpkin in a can. Surely fresh veges are available. Secondly it sounds like you don't have roast veges all that often. I know you have mashed potato with roast meat but do you also have roast veges? I'm sure you would all think we have different ways here.
    I make roast veges as often as I can. Just a spray of oil and all in the one baking dish. My DH asks for mashed veges sometimes. I love roast veges because they are healthier as, except for some herbs they need nothing else.
    We know that Americans didn't take to our national spread, Vegemite. Would it interest you to know it was developed by an American scientist working for Kraft.
    I'd be interested to hear other stories about what you enjoy eating.

    Try roast parsnip. Wonderful.

    Love roasted veggies. Two nights ago we did potato,sweet potato,brussel sprouts, onions, mushrooms and cauliflower. Delicious. I do the fries all the time but I never peel them. Thats where all the good stuff is. Even sweet potatoes don't get peeled. I think some people peel them with out thinking. try them with the peel on. They are evn yummier

    Sounds really yummy I roast butternut squash with olive oil and salt and pepper, my husband likes it sweet with brown sugar and butter (of course) but he will eat it this way too.
