Easy Great Veggies

I read so many impressive blogs of great, creative cooks who write their wonderful recipes and take the time to post pictures of their creations.  Someone was thinking of me when she said, "I only have a kitchen because it came with the house."  I think my little band of followers are all good cooks, which makes me a little embarrassed to even think about posting a recipe.  But here it is:   

I wish I could be one of those people who love veggies.  They are so beautiful.  I do love my veggies Barefoot Contessa style.  It works for just about any vegetable you like.  I cut them in bite-sized pieces, place on a cookie sheet and drizzle or spritz with a little olive oil.  Season with your favorite herbs and spices.  I'm such a minimalist when it comes to the kitchen that I usually rely on salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and toss with my hands.  Roast them at 425 degrees for about 20 or 25 minutes (give or take).

  1. Well I know you certainly can't be talking about me when you refer to the good cooks in your followers!! I'm just a chef "wanna be" who only discovered the Food Network in recent years! I would never win any cooking contests, LOL!!

    I think this is a great way to fix veggies (and I LOVE veggies!!). I pretty much stick with the same seasonings you use, too. I've found that I can spray my pan with PAM, then spray the vegetables and they cook up just about as well as with the olive oil.
