Rachel Ray is the one that cranks up the Nausea Meter to danger levels for me.
I am back to watching RR on occassion: I got so tired of her for awhile: they should have named the Food Network, the RR Network.

Artie got to me during the competition last year when she would cry, would say, oh, I know I am just not good, etc. I don't think she putting on an act, she is just too much for me. I still love Melissa from the year before.

400 degrees oven.

Bowl
Amount of veggies you want/chopped in large pieces, or whole for say baby carrots:

I love these: broccoli, cauliflower (really good), carrots, onions, celery, squash, green beans, potatoes of course, red small/sweet; awesome: asparagus!

Toss with olive oil, s/p and herbs of choice.

Spread single layer on cookie sheet. Stir every 5-8 minutes...til done. (20 min or so)

ENJOY



aced1;19494045]I'm looking for some new ways to prepare veggies so my hubby might like a few more. He's mostly a corn, carrot, green bean kind of guy and I'd like to be able to make some of the ones he doesn't like in new ways so he might try them again. I did attempt to roast a veggie ages ago but it didn't go all that well but I'd like to give it another shot with a verified good recipe. Anyone have any favorites? I love almost all veggies so I'm open to try most of them.

I'll give it a try

I did see a clip of her show online and must admit, I prefer her own home show on YouTube.

For those who are interested, go to her channel and make her curried popcorn. That's a staple in my house now and I make it for work all the time. Phenomenal stuff!
I like Arti. I never watched the competition that won her the show, but I watch Arti Party and the Spice lady on Cooking Channel and I enjoy them both, as I'm just learning about Indian food. I agree with you about Rachel Ray, but my most hated Food Network shows remain Sandra Lee and her clone Melissa D'Arabian. I couldn't believe when Melissa won the FN Star as she was so-o-o much like Sandra. That competition has mixed results. As much as I dislike Melissa I love my Big Daddy and his big flavors in an equal amount.

I'll def. be trying your ways of cooking spinach and broccoli. Thanks for those instructions.

I guess I can see how one might compare Melissa and Sandra Lee, and yet I don't put them in the same catagory. Maybe it is because I do not like Sandra at all, she is just sweet and sugary for me, Melissa though doing the under $10 meals, makes them interesting and uses her knowledge of french cooking to combine budget with gourmet (if you can call it gourmet) I like her personality better as well.

Do they have to be roasted veggies? There are a lot of sneaky ways to introduce chopped or pureed vegetables into other foods, like spinach in the brownies and sweet potatoes in the chicken kebabs, in Jennifer Seinfeld's book Deceptively Delicious.


Roasted beets are fun to disguise in orange or sweet & sour sauce. If you use golden beets he will never guess what they are and if you use the white ones, he will think they are potatoes and chow down. White-fleshed turnips and parsnips and, again, white beets are easy to sneak into mashed potatoes...just add a little more each time until he starts to acquire the taste for them. They are also great rolled in cracker crumbs and baked in the oven like oven fries.

I like roasted cherry tomatoes. I roast them in a shallow pan, after rolling them around in olive oil and a little salt. Preheat oven. Roast at 400 deg for about 10 min.

This would be easier to advise on if we knew why he hates veggies.

Texture? Color? Seeds?

We like cauliflower florets roasted with mustard seeds. Toss them w olive oil. Cover dish with foil because the seeds explode. Bake at 400º 20 min.
