Roasted Gingered Vegetables

The extra ginger added at the end gives these vegetables a fresh flavor. Better yet, you get an entire day’s requirement for vitamin C and three quarters of your daily need for beta carotene in this dish, antioxidants that protect the mind from age-related damage! Serve with Herb-Roasted Chicken or Individual Meat Loaves with Fresh Thyme.
