Every Sunday night I cut up the huge amount of veggies that we buy at the Farmers’ Market, place them on a big sheet pan and roast them up for us to eat over the next few days. I find that keeping simply cooked, intensely flavored vegetables in the fridge is an easy way to fill the school lunch box or make dinner easier for me to get on the table in no time flat.
Sometimes I toss my vegetables with a touch of maple syrup or some fresh herbs, but one of my kids’ new favorite ways to eat them is with a splash of soy sauce and sesame oil. It's amazing how just a dash and sprinkle of a few uncommon ingredients transforms a food that my kids normally enjoy into something completely different that they love just as much.
