Roasted Vegetables

These are SO SO SO GOOD! My friend Karla made them at her kids' birthday party the other day. Even if you don't like veggies, you'll love these! Especially the sweet potatoes.

Roasted Vegetables:
You can do whatever veggies you'd like.
My favorite are
Sweet potato
Portabello caps
Others that roast well are:
Red peppers

For all the veggies, drizzle extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
Place them on a cookie sheet or baking pan and roast in the oven at
400 degrees. The each take about 20-30 minutes. You can also grill
them on a pan or outside grill. Make sure they are a little chard but
not burned. For the sweet potatoes or carrots I usually pre-slice
them. The bellos, I usually leave whole then slice them when they come
out. the Peppers I usually cut into halves or thirds, roast them and
then slice them.

A WONDERFUL dip that goes well with them:

*1 cup mayo
*3 oz sour cream
*salt and pepper to taste
*5 oz balsamic vinegar
*2 garlic cloves
*6-8 medium sized basil leaves

Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and refrigerate for an hour or more before serving.
