These are vegetables that do not need very much attention. Carrots and beets can be roasted at higher temperatures (200ºC to 215ºC or 400ºF to 425ºF) or they can be broiled.
The care that needs to be taken is with parsnips and yams as they should be roasted at a lower temperature (375ºF or 180ºC) because the sugars in those caramelize faster and can burn.
Other veggies can be broiled and are also delicious. I have just recently discovered that if you broil asparagus that is lightly oiled & salted, they are amazing! My five-year-old asked how I made them taste like fries.
As we are coming into spring, asparagus will be more and more available at great prices.
I think they are my newest favourite things to eat. Broiled bell peppers are also a favourite, but I am waiting for them to be in season so I am not paying so much for them, per pound.
