Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower and Tomatoes – Easy and festive!

Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower and Tomatoes – Easy and festive!

It’s awesome! What you’ll love about roasted vegetables is the flavors have added complexity, the tomatoes seem a bit sweeter, and this color combination always looks so festive. Not bad for a simple side dish that requires only five minutes of prep time; thereafter, its’ passive cooking that allows you to comfortably work on the rest of the meal. Plus, you can take all the credit for what the roasting did to the vegetables! No one else needs to know! I won’t tell. You’ve got to experience for yourself how the juicy tomatoes improve the flavors of the vegetables. It’s mouth-watering!
