Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower & Carrots

When you are trying to put together dinner, it is nice to have some no fuss vegetable recipes to depend on.  This one is especially convenient, as it uses frozen vegetables.  I always keep a bag of the broccoli, cauliflower and carrot mixture in my freezer.  I try to use mostly fresh vegetables but it is nice to have these available,  especially at the end of the week when I need to go shopping.  According to this article on, eating frozen vegetables can have its benefits and is certainly better than no vegetable at all.  

Roasted Broccoli, Cauliflower & Carrots

1 pound bag of frozen broccoli, cauliflower and carrots
2 T olive oil
1 t seasoned salt
½ t freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425o.  Coat the bottom of a 9”x13” glass baking pan with the olive oil.  Sprinkle salt and pepper over the oil.  Add frozen vegetables and stir to coat.  Since they are frozen, they oil and spices will not coat very evenly.  Cook in preheated oven for 10 minutes.  Then stir again.  The oil and spices will now coat more evenly.  Cook for an additional 10 minutes.  Stir once more.  Then cook for 5 more minutes or until desired tenderness.   4 servings
