I finally tried it last night.
I got some veggies specifically for roasting.
Beets, fennel, purple sweet potato & red bell pepper.
I kept hearing how beets tastes so much better when roasted, and fennel, too. (I love raw fennel!)
Well, let's just say it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped.
The beets were yummy, but nothing to write home about. The sweet potato was good, as expected. I over-cooked the red pepper, even though I took them out early. And the fennel? Well the flavor mellowed, but I liked it much better raw.
So what did I do wrong? I baked them at 375, with just a tiny bit of olive oil. I don't usually season veggies, so I didn't add anything. Maybe it was the veggies I chose?
What do you like to roast?
