It’s that time of year when everyone is trying to get healthy. Although we don’t subscribe to any specific diet or health plan, our family does believe in vegetables. A lot of vegetables. And we love these garlic roasted vegetables.
We try to fill our plate half full of vegetables at meals. It may not always happen because it can be a challenge. But we do try to eat our fill whenever we can. We’ve found that when you eat more vegetables, it’s hard to eat all the other things (that are delicious but not so healthy). In fact, a lot of nutritionists recommend filling your plate halfway with vegetables.
We have four kids. So, a dinner of vegetables is usually greeted with groans of dismay. Thankfully, these garlic roasted vegetables are a family favorite. The easiest way we’ve found to roast vegetables is in the oven. This recipe is quick and easy, and oh. so. delicious. In fact, we hear a lot less grumbling from our kids when we make this healthy side dish.
This dish is a little heavy on the garlic, (we love this kind) so if you don’t love garlic as much as we do, feel free to add less. Or add more. Do your thing.
Frozen veggies are easy to keep on hand. We love them because they don’t get shoved to the back of the refrigerator until they become a scary mess. You can pull them out anytime. They also come pre-chopped and ready to use. If you are feeling ambitious, you can sub in your favorite fresh veggies. Just cut back on the time they are in the oven.
Do you need to eat more veggies? Would you rather eat salad or cooked vegetables? Be sure to share this recipe with all your food loving friends!
