6 cups of any Winter vegetables, cubed – my favorite is a combination of acorn squash, butternut squash, white sweet potatoes, and regular sweet potatoes – I call it “squash, potato, squash, potato.”

1-2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1-2 jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced

  • Place the vegetables in a zip-top bag and add all other ingredients.
  • Mix well.
  • Turn out onto a baking pan or pizza pan that has been lined with foil and sprayed with non-stick spray.
  • Bake at 375 until the vegetables are tender and have a bit of color.

This is great warm from the oven as a side dish. You can also top it with an over- medium egg for a main dish. OR cool, it can be used as a salad ingredient, mix with arugula and balsamic vinaigrette.
