The process of roasting vegetables is so simple yet underrated. There is no need to coat vegetables with cheese or breadcrumbs and multiple seasonings. The best way to bring out the natural flavor and texture of most vegetables is to simply roast them with just a few seasonings.

I only recently discovered the beauty of roasted vegetables. I grew up in a home where most vegetables were boiled or steamed beyond recognition. Many people my age seem to have the same childhood memories of mushy vegetables that lacked any taste or texture. The best part about roasting vegetables is that there is very little preparation and very little cleanup involved.

I am a huge fan of spicy food. While this dish is full of flavor without the red pepper flakes, I like to kick up the heat level by including the flakes. If you or your family does not like spicy food leave the flakes out for a mellow flavor.

This simple side dish will please even the pickiest eaters and erase any childhood memories of overcooked vegetables.
