Back on Track: Roast Veggies For Multiple Meals

On Sunday evening, the reality of the upcoming week sets in. Where I used to panic about Monday, I now prepare myself on Sunday for whatever the next few days will bring. I have started roasting a bunch of veggies to serve as a side dish for Sunday dinner, but I save the leftovers for other meals. On top of greens, roasted veggies make a salad more filling. I mix the veggies with whole wheat pasta and goat cheese for a hearty dinner. Adding roasted veggies to a quesadilla makes this quick staple a more well-rounded meal. Stuffing a whole wheat pita with roasted veggies makes a great lunch. The options are endless.

Each week I mix it up a little. Sometimes I just do root veggies like yams, potatoes, carrots, rutabaga, and parsnips. I also love making a Mediterranean mix with eggplant, sweet red peppers, onions, garlic, and olives. Not matter what I roast, it makes my kitchen toasty and I am ready to begin another week.

I grill or sautee vegetables every week to add to pasta or eat in wraps, but I have never roasted them before. You should explain how to do this in this article.

This is such a good idea! I have made it a goal to get my 5 servings of veggies every day, so this will help.

I like to roast vegetables, too. Brussell sprouts and beets are delicious, too.

i do this just about every monday! be careful not to crowd the cookie sheet TOO much, because then the veggies steam each other more than roast. i either eat them cold later, or i stick them in a skillet and they crisp right back up. while the oven's on, i usually also bake a couple chicken breasts to have on hand for the week to add to salads, sandwiches, soup, quesadillas, etc.

This is a fabulous idea Fit. I was just thinking about how I really need to incorporate more veggies (besides a salad) into my weekday dinners. This works perfectly!

This picture looks delicious! I wonder what's in it. Roasting vegetables is something I've never done, I will definitely do this.

great idea--I LOVE roasted veggies, but they're not something I want to do all the time. I've never thought of roasting in bulk.
