These roasted vegetables have a tender, yet crisp texture and are full of naturally sweet and slightly smokey flavors! So versatile that you can add them to a salad - dip in hummus as a snack - or enjoy them warm straight out of the oven as a side dish. Make these on your meal prep day to enjoy all week. V, GF.
