Not your Momma's Veggies

I am not a huge fan of veggies but...I totally get that for our health we are supposed to be getting several helpings of them a day. Blah Blah Blah. So, I had to start coming up with some ways to get these veggies in our bellies. So, I decided to roast 'em and throw some syrup on 'em. Here is my favorite way to get my veggies in:

2 sweet potatoes
1 purple onion
1 red pepper
(you can also add carrots and butternut squash)
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (I usually add a lil bit more)

Spray dish with non stick spray. Cut up all of your veggies and toss them together.

Drizzle the oil on top

Then the syrup

Add salt, pepper and a touch of garlic. Toss together till veggies are coated.
Bake veggies at 450, uncovered, for an hour. I usually take them out at the 30 minute mark and re-toss. Just to make sure they aren't sticking and getting completely coated.

Ta da! Sweet and caramelized goodness. Get some!

  1. Yum! We love to cook ours in foil packets on the grill during the summer. Fresh is so much better. I will definitely have to try this.


Show me some love!
