I used this recipe for roasting veggies, which I've never tried before, It worked great! I added chopped garlic and served it which mixed grains that I have cooked in the rice cooker (bulgar, quinoa, millet). It was great. I put in in single servings baggies, freeze it, and take it for lunch. I works well both warm and cold. Once I dressed it with a litttle meyer lemon olive oil before serving and that was good too.
