Wow, that is one amazing girl. Here's how I'd figure it: Vegetables tend to shrink when roasted, so you'll need more per person than the serving size on the package. I think I'd figure 4-6 ounces of vegetables per person, depending on how many side dishes there are. Using that calculation, she'll need 400-600 ounces total, divided among the different vegetables.
thank you for your'e answer i'm one of those people, who if one unexpected person comes over i triple things . actually this recipe was invented when my daughter brought home a vegetarian (last minuete guest). vegs are roasted with wegmans basting oil salt & pepper yum i call the basting oil my liquid gold i love it its a staple in my kitchen.
