Today's tip

Hearty vegetables like winter squashes and eggplant roast very well on their own without the help of a roasted meat to add flavor.

You can roast most vegetables whole, but squash is an example of one that is usually cut into large pieces. Season your vegetables with salt, pepper, and oil or butter; you can also season them after baking with several spices and herbs. Sweet potatoes and winter squashes are great with brown sugar or honey.
