roasted vegetable cups

These can be as simple (made with as few as one or two vegetables) or as complex as you choose. They are a great diy breakfast project for school-age children. In the morning, I present them with the veggies all cut so they can just assemble their cups. While they roast in the oven, the kids munch on raw apples and grapes, which, by the way, are also delicious roasted with the veggies right in the cups.

Chop the chive into tiny pieces,

and tear the parsley into leaflets.  Place each wonton wrapper in a muffin cup, folding it to form an edible container or cup.

Arrange the cut vegetables in each cup.

You can vary the contents of each cup, or make them all the same. Well, similar. Like the vegetables themselves, no two of these cups will ever be exactly the same.

Top with chives and parsley.
