    Roasting these vegetables sounds easy and delicious. I am going to try it as soon as I can gather the ingredients. My only question is: what is granulated onion? G

      Granulated onion is similar to onion powder. It’s only a slight texture difference. You might get a stronger flavor out of powder than granules.

    Should the vegetables be blanched first? Read that preserves the color. But if I do that, they will be wet when I try to mix them in the oil, etc. Your thoughts?
