As I write, Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, with the December holidays right on its heels. If we’re blessed, our tables will be covered in all kinds of rich, delicious foods. If you’re searching for a last-minute addition to your holiday meals, I suggest a roasted vegetable or two.

Roasting is my favorite way to prepare vegetables year-round, holiday or not. Most vegetables roast very well. This time of year, my favorites are sweet potatoes, carrots, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and green beans (you can’t ever have too many favorite vegetables, right?).
