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.

Sweet red pepper, remove seeds, vidalia onions in rings and garlic. Drizzle white wine, sea salt and olive oil, wrap in foil and cook for an hour at 325. Toss the garlic, dump the onion and pepper on his plate next to his steak and see if he tries them.

We have recently found the best roasted veggies are 1-onions and they are easy, just cut in 1/2 leaving the bottom in tack so they don't fall apart, brush with a little oil and garlic and stick on the grill or in the oven at 425 degrees. The other favorite is: asparagus or green bean bunches wrapped in proscuitto ham.

This is a new favorite. It works well grilled or baked/broiled.

Grilled Zucchini Spears with Lemon Vinaigrette

Dressing
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ lemon, juice and zest
sea salt
black pepper, cracked

Spears
2 zucchini, quartered lengthwise
1 teaspoon olive oil
sea salt
black pepper, cracked
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
1 tablespoon feta cheese
1 tablespoon basil, chopped

1. Vinaigrette: Whisk together all of the ingredients in a small bowl. Taste and re-season if necessary.

2. Zucchini: Toss the zucchini with the olive oil then season with sea salt and pepper in a bowl. Grill the zucchini on the grill (or in a grill pan) on one side until the grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Flip wedges and grill an additional 1-2 minutes. Cut each quarter in half crosswise, return to bowl.

3. Pour the vinaigrette over the zucchini. Add the pine nuts, feta cheese, and basil, then toss gently to coat evenly. Serve warm. Enjoy.

yellow squash sometimes has a little more flavor, you might want to try that. We happen to love all squash (I do anyway) but zuchinni can be bland.

Squash is good. I love it too. Hubby won't eat it either. Well the only way I have him eating squash so far is spaghetti squash and I cook the squash and layer it in lasagna instead of noodles and he does love that.
