Roasted Root Veggies for Babies and Adults too!

My niece has some of the best eating habits of any one-year-old. Again, I attribute this largely to the dedication of my brother and his wife to expose her to a wide variety of foods. Now that my niece has just started getting some teeth she has started moving from puree to more solids. This recipe for roasted veggies is great for babies and just as wonderful for adults too! Also, any root veggie will work just pick something that is in season.
