I have to admit, I’m not the biggest fan of certain raw veggies. Sugar snap peas are my favorite veggies to eat raw, but there’s one way I love to eat all veggies, and that is when they are roasted! There’s something about the taste of roasted veggies that I never get tired of!
On a recent trip to the grocery store, I was in the produce section eyeing the colorful bags of organic rainbow baby carrots. I was also thinking that I had not been eating many veggies lately, so it was time to roast some! Near the carrots, I found a bag of organic beets, and thought that might taste good with the carrots. And I added the organic yellow onions because I’m a big fan of roasted onions!
I usually use all organic veggies when I’m roasting them—I just feel better about using organic if they’re available and not too way-out expensive. I really liked this combination of roasted veggies—they all tasted great together. And these veggies are all so good for you. I hear so many great things about beets especially, and I really liked the taste of the roasted beets! So when you’re feeling like you need to eat something healthy, give this a try!
