don't stop with just broccoli and cauliflower. This recipe works for brussels sprouts...try it the almost tastes like french fries. its also great with carrots, beets and asparagus.

Thanks Stacy, good to "know" this!

This is what I do with sweet potatoes! Cut them into big chunks, put in big chunks of sweet yellow onion, drizzle and toss with olive oil, s & p, garlic powder. But cook for between 40 min. and 1 hour depending on how soft you like them.
I dip mine in ketchup when I'm feeling extra crazy :)

Once I tried roasted cauliflower and asparagus, I stopped cooking them any other way. Cubed sweet potatoes tossed with OO and grated ginger are quick, too. Really easy to get dinner done...pop a couple pans in, make salad while waiting & dinner is ready 20 min later, loaded with veggies, with leftovers for next day. For my animal eaters, a pan of fish filets or chicken breasts cooks along side, too. If you have a busy work schedule, you can prep non-starchy vegetables a head of time and just pull out of fridge. Thanks for the suggestion to try broccoli...can't wait.

No joke, I did not like broccoli until I tried it this way - sooo goood!

My tip: LEMON JUICE! Squeeze some lemon juice over the finished product, and you will not believe your tastebuds, it's amazing! Definitely include some garlic when you roast it too. Asparagus and cauliflower make great companions, like people have mentioned. I love this dish so much I made it for *breakfast* last week... mmmm!
