For a while now on Pinterest and Foodgawker I have seen a lot of posts about roasting veggies instead of steaming or sauteing them. I really haven't roasted anything except potatoes so I thought I would give it a try. I can not believe how delicious they turn out! The flavor that roasting brings out is something you can't get with spices. The week I roasted green beans and baby portabello mushrooms that I covered in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and then I did some peppers and onions only in olive oil. Both times I did this I only used about 1.5 tablespoons of oil but you could probably do less. I don't know how much of the veggies I had but it filled a gallon size plastic bag. I got two veggie servings out of each roasting.

|I don't know how long I cooked them. Just watch them. I may have cooked them a little long but they were nice and crispy!|
|I sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese on them when they were done.|
