When roasting veggies is it 1 1/2 cups after being roasted or before? I just measured out 1 1/2 cups of green beans and roasted them and they shriveld up into nothing. When I measured them afterwards they were only 3/4 cup! They were delicious though. Thanks Music Gal! Would I need to add another 3/4 cup of veggies? Thanks!..

I always measure my veggies cooked. The rule of thumb I've read is to weigh food in the state in which you eat it that goes for proteins as well.

And I never met a roasted veggie I didn't like. YUM!..

Mollie, Roasted veggies are awesome. I do green beans, broccoli and asparagus. I have a Misto olive oil sprayer which turns olive oil into a fine mist like Pam. I lightly spray whatever veggie I want to cook..turn to oven to 425 (or 450 if you are brave) and roast the veggies until cooked. Broccoli takes a little longer (maybe 15 minutes) and smaller veggies take about ten. Just taste one and see if you want it to roast a little longer.

Then lightly salt and pepper (don't forget to count as condiments) and enjoy...

Roasted cauliflower is my fav, with zucchini a close second. You can even roast sliced radishes and they taste a lot like potatoes! There is a recipe for it on the boards..

I agree with ChinaKat - never met a roasted veggie I didn't like!! Yummo - so much better than in the microwave...

Don't be afraid to roast them longer, either. They get sweeter with more roasting. YUM...

Roasting is a fabulous way to cook veggies for sure- brings out a lot of flavor! Remember you can do "unconventional" veggies for roasting as well- green beans and asparagus are two of my favorites. I say unconventional because you don't usually think of doing these in the oven for sure..

Make sure to use some water, some Pam spray or a little oil (remember to count the healthy fat that day!) and sprinkle of the seasoning as well. Salt and pepper work well, as do other seasonings..

Cheers!.
