Roasting vegetables works a little bit of kitchen magic. It softens their interiors to just the right tender texture, adds bit of crispiness to the edges, and brings out richer flavor than you’d ever get with steamed or raw veggies. What’s even more wonderful is that, while veggie lovers are sure to enjoy them, skeptics find a lot to love in a pan of toasty, flavorful and warm vegetables, too. This versatile recipe includes sweet potatoes, broccoli, bell peppers and peas for a colorful combination that serves up big flavor. It’s a versatile side for simple suppers, dressed up dinners and can even take center stage for meatless meals and make-ahead meal prep. MORE+ LESS-
