Pay attention to the materials you cook with. Different material conduct the heat to the food giving different results. Ceramics have long been known to produce great results. Think baking stones in the old Italian pizza ovens. Give that same heat to vegetables and you will make sure that your family eats enough veggies at every meal. Other great veggies to bakes in clay in the oven are asparagus and broccoli.
