try this: oven roasted vegetables

This is such a quick, easy side dish with dinner. Just throw it in the oven with whatever you're already roasting in there. Its great with roast chicken.  It seems like it makes a ton, but my kids goggle it all up!

CSC_0140-1 Oven Roasted Vegetables

1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes, cut in half lengthwise
olive oil
kosher salt, fresh ground pepper
1 pound french string beans, trimmed
1 bunch thin asparagus, ends removed, cut diagonally into 3-inch pieces

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Put potatoes on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Toss with your hands.
Roast potatoes for 20-25 minutes, then remove from oven. Toss the string beans and asparagus with the potatoes and roast for another 15 minutes. Sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt (or some freshly grated Parmesan cheese if you're feeling decadent!)

    I’m pretty much obsessed with oven roasted veggies with lots of kosher salt during this pregnancy. Have you tried Barefoot Contessa’s roasted brussel sprouts. Even A will eat them…
