Roasted veggies are so good and easy. The roasting brings out the sugars and I love the char. Cut the vegetables to about the same size so they cook at the same rate. I came across cabbage sprouts at the Farmer’s Market but Brussels sprouts would be perfect too. Cabbage sprouts are the small heads that grow from where the large head of cabbage was cut. The amounts are very flexible here as are the choice of veggies themselves. Use your imagination and have fun.
