Dear Nutritionist: I know vegetables are good for me, but I don’t really like them. Do you have any tips for making them delicious?
Dear Member: I get this question so often! One of the simplest tricks to making vegetables more delicious to a picky eater is to roast them. Roasting brings out the natural sugars in the vegetables, caramelizing them and making them taste sweeter. And you can roast all kinds of veggies: cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, mushrooms, kale … the options are endless. In general, just coat them with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and any herbs or spices you like. Roast in a 425°F to 450°F oven until the vegetables are caramelized.
