Best Roasted Veggies – Paleo

If you have never roasted veggies, let me virtually shake you and yell “What is wrong with you?!”. You have no idea what you’re missing! We eat these veggies at least 3-4 times a week. Sometimes, when I’m super lazy, this is all we’ll eat for dinner because I only want to make one dish. I’ll admit it takes my son (who is 5 years old) a billion years to finish his dinner when I do this, but he’s a slow eater anyway. Other than that, everyone else gobbles it up pretty fast. The baby prefers the sweet potatoes (who wouldn’t) but we’re working on getting her to like the little trees too 🙂

There are no beets or Brussel sprouts in the photo, but trust me, add them. It is SO delicious!

    1. Oh yeah, you roast the cloves, whole, and just eat them. So delicious. Garlic isn’t nearly as, um, garlicky, when it’s roasted. You should definitely try it out.

    1. Depends on the size of your pan. I have a small and a large jelly roll pan, and I use the large one for this. Everything fits on the one pan.

  1. So I’m cooking a pork shoulder at the same time, with the oven at 325. Could I roast these at 325, but increase the time?

    1. Most of the recipes on my site are family-sized. There are 5 of us. If it’s a smaller serving, it’s usually listed on the recipe. These roasted veggies definitely make enough for a family and some leftovers.

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe is fantastic! I’ve already made it 3 times now and the sweet potatoes and whole garlic cloves really tie it in. Didn’t have brussel sprouts or beets one of the times and substituted zucchini- still great! Thank you!

We have enjoyed this soup both with and without the addition of the pork sausage, so it is both Whole30 and vegan friendly. This minestrone soup tastes even better than the endless soup from a certain chain restaurant, and you can make you own endless salad to go along with it.

Blueberries & Cream Gummies – Paleo

My kids love these real-fruit, no-sugar gummies and I love that they're getting the benefits from gelatin and real fruit and not the nasty side-effects of corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors.
