Vegetable prices are rising, which means many people are looking for creative ways to stretch their food budgets.

One of the best ways to save money on vegetables is to eat what’s in season. Focus on winter vegetables and roast them in large batches. Look for what’s on sale and plan your meals around those vegetables.

You can use this recipe as a template and incorporate any vegetables you like or that are well-priced. Carrots, turnip and rutabaga tend to be excellent buys.

I’ve converted many Brussels sprouts haters into lovers just by roasting them! Roasted vegetables have such wonderful flavour, crispness and caramelization. Roasting takes winter vegetables from meh to gourmet!
