Tips From Easy Recipes

The key to roasting is to make sure that the ingredients do not dry out. In this instance, be sure to coat the tomatoes and onions thoroughly with the oiled seasoning and be sure to add more good quality olive or rice bran oil, if so required - just another half or one tablespoon - not too much.

Be generous when seasoning with herbs. It is the garlic and herbs that adds depth to vegetarian recipes.
