Roasted Vegetables

Shopping for dinner and a bunch of jumbo Asparagus looked great also a basket of nice yellow tomatoes from Mexico, I chose to roast them with garlic, onion and fresh herbs from the garden. Roasting vegetables intensifies the flavor by removing moisture and the natural sugars in the vegetables caramelize bringing out the sweetness. Its a very healthy way to cook with out using a lot of oil or butter. I serve the vegetables by themselves or as a side to maybe a fillet of Halibut roasted along with the vegetables.
