I got a question about how I roast my veggies. It’s fast, simple, delicious, and one of my go-to ways to eat vegetables.
You can use this method with any veggies, but the usual suspects for me are:
Rainbow Slaw (similar to broc slaw only it also has cabbage)
Grab whatever veggies are to your liking though!
I love my spirilized zucchini.
Sometimes I will switch up the seasonings, but my no-fail combo is this one:
Montreal Chicken Seasoning (or Montreal Steak Seasoning is great too)
Nutrition Yeast Flakes (cheezey flavor!)
The seasoning mix is a blend of different herbs, spices, salt, and pepper. I highly recommend this one, but again, you can use any seasoning blend you have on hand.
Put oven on broiler setting and move baking rack up so that it’s right up the broiler.
Spray a piece of foil with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
Spread out your cut up veggies on baking sheet.
Give them a quick spray with cooking spray and then add your seasonings of choice.
Place baking sheet on rack right under broiler and roast, watching carefully for around 5-10 minutes. (I start with the oven door closed for about 3-5 minutes, then crack it open for the remainder of time. This lets some of the high heat escape so you don’t burn them to crisps) (
*Cooking time will vary depending on what veggies were used and how “done” you want them to be. I like to take them out once they start getting slightly burned/crispy on top.
*Using the broil setting and putting veggies right under it allows them to be cooked very fast. This is a perfect option when you don’t have a lot of time….or are just impatient and want to eat now.
