The aroma of perfectly caramelized vegetables just pulled out of a hot oven invites a wonderful sense of comfort. Celebrating the seasonal shift from cool, crisp salads to warm, baked dishes, roasting your veggies is a simple classic that always delights. This nourishing recipe uses Original Yumm! Sauce® as a basting marinade to easily transform your typical roasted vegetables into something truly special.
Feel free to experiment with a combination of your favorite veggies, and make sure to keep size and moisture content in mind as you cut them to ensure even roasting. Selecting a rainbow variety of root vegetables, mushrooms, squashes, and onions will entice your family to pile their plates with plant goodness thanks to the gorgeous visual charm.
