This is one of my very first recipe posts that I am sharing with you and I could not be more excited! I am currently sitting at my breakfast table, glasses on, jeans and a sweatshirt, fresh cup of coffee in one hand and typing away… IN WORD PRESS, ON MY BLOG!! MY BLOG!! With that said, I am excited to bring these recipes to life and into your homes!
This felt like such a good recipe to start with because it is one I love to make and they are veggies I always have in my fridge.When all else fails and we cant make up our minds on whats for dinner, roasted veggies are our go to.
My Love For Healthy Roasted Veggies:
Roasted Veggies I have to say are my favorite go to healthy meal.
They are the perfect side for any protein or fish and just so delicious and filling. We probably eat them at least twice a week. I love that you can combine any veggie or spice, throw them in the oven and forget about them for a bit while you either cook the rest of dinner or go work on something else!
To me they are comforting, warm and have the best bite/ crunch. I am a textured eater, (don’t know if this is a thing but I am picky with foods because of textures lol) so something about them is just perfection to me. With the crunchiness from the broccoli and cauliflower, to the smoothness and softness of the butternut squash, i just cant get enough! It makes my pallet sing. I will be sharing more of my favorite roasted veggie variations, so stay tuned for those. :]
Roasted Veggies Nutritional Info
Roasted veggies, especially these in particular, are packed with so many vitamins and surprisingly protein that it is never a bad idea to have these on your week night menu. I love adding butternut squash to the broccoli and cauliflower mixture as it adds a hearty and sweet component. However it is packed with so much more. Amongst the many vitamins butternut squash provides, potassium and calcium are two that stick out to me most. Those vitamins in particular are ones I don’t typically get ( I hate bananas and regular milk haha) so I love finding other ways to receive that.
As for Broccoli and Cauliflower, they also provide a ton of vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin A etc but an added bonus is they both provide a good amount of protein! Cauliflower in particular really surprised me! Fun fact 1 medium head of cauliflower provides 11 grams of protein! So for all you vegans or vegetarians out there adding cauliflower to your meal is a great source of protein! While a head of Broccoli provides about 4.2 grams it is also a very nutrient rich vegetable!
