Cross-posted with the Parenting forum.  This was in today's paper, and I thought of MDC.

I've had good luck with roasted root veggies. Cubed carrots, turnips, potatoes, leeks, tossed with olive oil, salt and rosemary. It smells fantastic while it's roasting.  My kids eat some, not a lot of it.

Love roasted vegetables. 

 

Don't know about kids - mine have always been pretty good about eating veggies - but when I roasted beetroot, tossed it with balsamic vinegar, fresh herbs and a little goat cheese, it was the first time DH ate beets in years. He loves roasted beets now.

Yum, the vinegar and goat cheese sounds delicious.

 

I made the roasted veggies last night, and made an extra big batch.  Carrots, potatoes, a leek, a purple onion, some beautiful beets and a handful of radishes.    We keep getting radishes in the produce delivery and we're not really into them, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try roasting them.  Meh. They were fine, but I wouldn't bother again.

 

But yay, left-overs!
