....is how i like to enjoy my veggies!!!  you can roast almost any vegetable!  most of the time i prefer the "high heat" method.  high heat is typically 400 degrees or above.  for most veggies, it takes between 20 and 40 minutes.  sometimes slow roasting at a lower heat is better.  one example is slow roasted tomatoes.  today, during my morning break between clients, i came home, pre-heated the oven, washed and chopped my veggies...turnips, cabbage, and beautiful purple carrots....coated them with grapeseed oil, kosher salt, and fresh ground black pepper, put them in the oven, did 30 minutes of yoga, then enjoyed the crisp and tender, wonderfully flavored, sweetly caramelized, gorgeous grub! 
 
i used the turnips and carrots that were locally grown and the cabbage i got from Trader Joe's.


i quartered the cabbage(keeping the core in tact) and halved the turnips and carrots.  i placed all the veggies on a sheet pan and drizzled on some grapeseed oil (this oil has a high smoke point, so it is perfect for high heat roasting), sprinkled on some kosher salt and ground on some fresh black pepper.





put in 400 degree oven for about 35 minutes, until all veggies are fork tender, the tops of the veggies(parts facing up) are a little crisp and the bottoms(parts on pan) are golden brown. 



i enjoyed my beautiful bounty with a bowl of lentils, quinoa, and pesto. 



take a look at this amazing carrot!  bright and brilliant yellow/orange inside, deep purple outside....i wonder how many phytochemicals are in this deliciously dense gem! 


i love roasting cabbage this way, just pick it up by the core and take a nice big bite!


what veggies do you enjoy roasting???
