  • Place on a baking sheet or dish so that the vegetables are not stacked on top of each other, but in a single layer to allow browning
  • Roast in oven for approximately 1 hour, turning with a spatula half way through cooking
  • Remove from the oven when the vegetables are tender and browning nicely
  • Oils to use? sesame, olive, butter, coconut, rendered bacon! And many more.
  • Try using some different color peppercorns or a few spices too, like curry, paprika, etc.
