Growing up, the only vegetables I knew and ate (besides an occasional salad) were those that came out of a can. My husband despises all of the vegetables that come that way, namely green beans and corn, so it led me to learn how to cook a vegetable rich side dish. I learned how to roast veggies about a year ago and it still remains as a go-to side dish with almost any meat entree. I originally learned how to do this from no other than Betty Crocker in an old cookbook of mine. This is my own version and one that I use frequently.
This makes enough for 3-4 servings based on your serving size.
