I have been studying to learn more about food…not dieting…healthy, clean as possible…food. Which means we are eating more vegetables. We have a pattern on Sundays of eating a meal with roasted veggies. They are easy and soooo good.
I start by mixing whatever fresh veggies I have on hand. It seems that this dish is different each week. Yesterday, we combined broccoli, a red pepper, mushrooms, carrots, baby tomatoes, a little celery, and a little onion.
I toss them with olive oil, a dash of sea salt, a dash of pepper, Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb flavoring, a pinch of chia seeds, and a pinch of flaxseeds. Then I will pour them in a pan (this one has nonstick foil on it) and bake in the over at 357 degrees for 35 minutes. If I include baby potatoes or brussel spouts then the time needs to be 45 minutes.
We ate these yesterday with some baked fish. I will save the leftover to either take to work for lunch or even to toss with some veggie pasta for a meal early in the week. This has become a favorite.
Learning to eat more fresh produce is something my whole family is striving for…and I am happy to say we are doing well so far!
What are your favorite ways to eat veggies??
