If you’re looking for a new way to cook vegetables, this method is quick, easy, and DELICIOUS! Baking vegetables in the oven gives them a different taste it seems without adding any seasoning to them. My husband and I have been making this frequently and we go through half the pan in one meal! We pile the veggies high though, so this could serve a family of 4 if you put your portions to 1/2 a cup.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Set your oven to 450 degrees. Slice your selected veggies to bite size pieces, and place them on a cookie sheet (you may need to put a non-stick spray on depending on the coating of your cookie sheet). Spread out the vegetables so they’re in a single layer. Drizzle the olive oil over top of the vegetables (it doesn’t need to be coated). Place in the oven and set the timer for 45 minutes.
I like to flip the veggies over half way through the cooking time so they cook more evenly, but it is not necessary. If you want some heat, add a small amount of Red Pepper Flakes after baking.
