Roasted vegetables: A quick and easy side dish

Chopped bell peppers, onions and mushrooms
Roasted vegetables

You know, I never understand why more people don't roast vegetables instead of going for the can opener. Roasted vegetables taste so good and you can roast almost anything. The end result is a great side dish that will sometimes be the main attraction on the plate. Here's a quick recipe on how I roast vegetables. Enjoy~

Ingredients: (pictured above)

5 medium sized red potatoes
1 large green bell pepper cut into chunks or strips
1 large onion 
1 1/2  cups of  thick sliced Crimini mushrooms
2 leeks cut into thick pieces
4 Parsnips peeled and cut into 2 inch pieces
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
4 tablespoons of Olive oil

Other suggested  add ins:
Red bell pepper, carrots, eggplant, turnips..Parmesan cheese

Chopped bell peppers, onions and mushrooms
Ready to bake

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

On a large cookie sheet, cover with non stick aluminum foil. If you don't have non stick use the regular and coat with Olive oil, soy sauce  and seasoned salt.
Chop and prepare all veggies and place on cookie sheet. Toss vegetables to make sure they are well coated with soy sauce/oil and seasonings.  If you need to, add more soy sauce and oil. 
Place in oven and cook until all vegetables are fork tender. This usually is anywhere from 20 minutes to 30 depending on how thick your vegetables are cut.
