This Roasted Veggies recipe is one of the most flexible recipes ever, it can be made with literally whatever vegetables you have in your fridge, a high quality organic olive oil, and organic spices. I partnered with my friends at Carapelli and used their amazing Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. All you need to make Roasted Veggies is a high quality olive oil and a little spice, and you have an easy and healthy side dish that will pair well with anything!
The spice mix that I use for this recipe is such a good spice mix that would be good with anything. I use garlic powder, oregano, thyme, and rosemary. This is a light spice mix that is something the whole family will love, even if you have picky eaters. It also goes well with all kinds of things like steak, pork, chicken, rice, quinoa, bread and more. I am using sweet potatoes, green beans, and red onion in this recipe (which is an amazing combo!). But there are so many other combinations that would be just as delicious! I’ll give you some more inspiration here.
Russet potatoes + Brussels sprouts + red onion
Sweet potatoes + Brussels sprouts + beets
Brussels sprouts + bacon + red onion
Yellow squash + zucchini + sweet potatoes
Green beans + carrots + yellow squash
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
