Reader Intelligence

During Autumn Vegetables Week, there has been one major recurring theme: The power of roasted vegetables. In our vegetable conversion discussion yesterday, over and over we heard the same thing: "I didn't like [fill in the blank ___] but then I tried them roasted, and... wow. My life was forever changed." So let's talk roasted vegetables for a bit — which are your favorites? How do you like to prepare them? Any little extras you like to add to the mix?

What about you? How do you like your roasted vegetables? Any special tips, tricks, or ingredients you are fond of?
