Some women are lucky. They have husbands who are content to have vegetables at the center of their plate for every meal. Their children devour a wide variety of vegetables no matter how they are prepared. This recipe is for the rest of us. If you are having trouble getting your family to eat their veggies, try this family-friendly side dish. Roasted vegetables already have a sweet flavor from the roasting, add maple syrup and you are practically at a dessert level. Your vegetable-weary family members will look at veggies in a whole new light with this side dish. Even if you have no problem getting your loved ones to eat vegetables, go ahead and make this just because it’s really good.Print
I know that’s a large time frame. Here’s the deal. If I was the only one eating these, I would let them roast for 45 minutes, and maybe even broil them for a minute at the end, until they were nicely brown and caramelized. Certain toddlers don’t appreciate brown-looking vegetables, however, so I tend to roast them for a shorter amount of time. The roasted vegetables in the picture above were in the oven for 30 minutes. So if you want them less brown, roast them for a shorter amount of time and if you want them more brown, go the full 45 minutes.
If you haven’t noticed, I eliminated the Blogroll from my main page. There were just too many websites I wanted to add and it was getting too long and cluttered. I now have a “Resources” page where you will find blogs and other helpful websites I love. Check it out!
