Roasted Vegetables deliver intense flavor. So simple anyone can do it.
Roasted Vegetables. Enhanced Flavor
Hi. It’s Lois in the kitchen at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about simple Roasted Vegetables. Roasting them strongly enhances the flavor of the veggies. It’s simple to do, and the flavors are amazing. You can use any vegetables you like. This works especially well for eggplant. There’s really only one trick to this recipe.
This is a good recipe to do on a rainy day or in the middle of winter because this cooking method requires high heat in the oven. Prepping the veggies and roasting them takes about 50 minutes, and most of the time is just waiting for the Roasted Vegetables to bake. So grab your favorite beverage and catch up with your family while you wait.
What You Need
As always, buy the best quality you can afford. You want your kitchen appliances and tools to last a lifetime.
Here’s the Trick
You can use any vegetables you like in this recipe. Be sure to cut them about the same size so they cook at the same speed. Potatoes and carrots cook at the same rate as each other and are a good pairing when using this method. I suggest you bake eggplant on a separate pan as it cooks faster than the other vegetables.

Olive Oil Mixture
Mix the oil, herbs, salt and pepper together until thoroughly blended.
