Time, time, time . . . cooking takes time and you have none, right? This recipe, I’m here to show you, is one example of how you can have a healthy side dish in less time that it takes to decide what kind of toppings you want on a pizza. It’s great for those leftover nights where the leftovers are a bit too skimpy to make a main meal. If you don’t know how to roast veggies, you’re going to learn now!
Ingredients: Whatever veggies you have.
Instructions: Cut up veggies, douse them in olive oil, and sprinkle them with salt and pepper. Bake for 375 or more depending on how quick you want them done and if you’re going to keep an eye on them. When they start to brown, they’re roasted! You can roast them at up to 500 degrees and still get good results, just keep in mind they can burn quicker.
10 minutes (about) in a hot oven and your healthy side dish is done!
