Easy Roasted Vegetables

Let’s talk about meal prepping for a minute. For the longest time, I thought it was this great idea, but kind of great in the way that getting up at 5:00am to kick off the day with a jog is great. You know, the kind of great where you’re like, “I’m totally going to start doing that!” and then your alarm goes off and you’re like, “nah, I can fit that in later”? Anybody with me on that? If you are, keep reading because I’ve got good news! If you’re not, keep reading anyway because your motivated self probably always wants to try a new recipe! 😉

So it might not come as a surprise that the good news is that meal prepping is SO WORTH YOUR TIME. I thought it would be this long process that would steal my whole entire Sunday afternoon, but the truth is, the way we do it, it doesn’t take any longer than preparing a meal, and it saves so much time throughout the week, while adding healthy options galore.

The recipe for roasted vegetables that I”m going to share today is simple and healthy, and it’s a great one to prep in advance and keep to add to meals (or use as the main dish) during the week!

So here’s what you’ll need:
    • 1-2 russet potatoes
    • 1-2 sweet potatoes
    • 1 yellow onion
    • 2 C brussel sprouts
    • 2 large heads of broccoli
    • 6-8 cloves of garlic, chopped
    • 1 T Jane’s Krazy Mixed-Up Salt
    • 1 T Garlic powder
    • 1 T Simply Organic Vegetable Seasoning
  • 1-2 T grapeseed (or other high heat) oil
To make, just chop up the veggies into bite size-ish pieces, add seasonings and oil, and bake at 400 for about 35 minutes (or until the veggies are tender), then switch to high broil for about 5-7 minutes to give them a little extra brown color and crisp texture.

Cover and refrigerate, and add to meals as you please! (This can obviously be customized based on your favorite vegetables and seasonings).

We also prep these delicious instant pot black beans that Amy shared her recipe for, along with brown rice pretty much every week, and just like that, we have a ton of options ready for lunches and dinners! So simple, healthy, and delicious.
 
Happy prepping (and eating!)
