Everyday Roasted Vegetables

RECIPE

So the particular recipe below leans towards some Mexican flavors but you can mix up the vegetables and seasonings in a million ways to create different variations on the theme. You'll find some ideas at the bottom of the post.

OH AND ALSO don’t crowd your veggies in the pan or they won’t be happy and neither will you. Crowded vegetables don't crisp and are so sad and not delicious (if you haven't noticed I mention not crowding vegetables and proteins a lot).

Ingredients:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into small florets 
  • 2 bell peppers (chef’s choice of the colors), cut into thin strips
