I challenge you to roast your vegetables this week
- You should already be eating 3-4 serving of vegetables a day, which is hard for the average American to accomplish
- By roasting vegetables you are able to retain the most important nutrients in the vegetables
- Roasting is easier then most people think, check out the directions below
Why why why
- Roasting preserves flavor and important nutrients in the vegetable
- The process of roasting brings out the natural sweetness and intensifies the natural flavors of the vegetables
- Roasted vegetables come out browned, caramelized, and crispy
- Common Vegetables to Roast
- Yellow Squash
- Brussel Sprouts
- Bell Peppers
- Most vegetables can be successfully roasted
- Choose or cut vegetables to similar size *about 1-2 inches
- Make sure not to crowd them too close together
- Season with salt, pepper, spices, and fresh herbs
- Coat and toss vegetables with “good” olive oil
- Spread vegetables evenly without crowding on a non-stick cookie sheet, roasting pan, or cast iron skillet
- Preheat over to 350-400 degrees F
- Bake for 30-45 minutes until vegetables are slightly softened and evenly browned
I’ve been obsessed with roasting vegetables for a long time now. This isn’t my first time sharing my passion on this blog, and I’m pretty sure it won’t be my last.
Since my boyfriend eats meat and I do not, I find it too time consuming to prepare to separate main dishes. Instead of trying to created a vegetarian masterpiece, I coat a few of my favorite vegetables with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and throw them in the oven. By the time I’m done with my meat fill concoction my vegetables are tender, juicy, and delicious.
I will be sharing some of my favorite roasting recipes throughout the week.

I was taught not to complain while growing up. My parents always taught to be grateful and appreciative of everything we have. But as I get older and older I find myself complaining a little more every day. I always feel dirty about myself after, I feel like I need to take a shower and wash away all of my negative thoughts and feelings.
I’m taking this challenge to heart just like I’m hoping all of you do.
That’s All Today Folks!
