Easy, Healthy Roasted Veggie Side

By no means am I trying to become a food blogger, but I have decided to start sharing some of my easy veggie creations.  My number one goal is to expose my boys to absolutely every vegetable in the produce section and with this dish I succeeded in sneaking in turnips and beets.

All you have to do is peel and cube the turnips and beets, cut the Brussels sprouts in half, and slice the mushrooms (you can leave them whole if you like).


Since I am a purest and the veggies really don’t need it, I don’t use any oil, salt, or butter.  Roast them in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 and then give them a shake.  Pop the bad boys back in the oven for 20 more minutes and ta-da:


I have also been known to throw some tofu into the pan and eat the whole thing for my meal.  For less than 200 calories it is very filling.  Oh and a word to the wise, beets change the color of your pee and poop.  My boys love that.  Who am I kidding, my boys love anything that changes their poop or makes them have gas.  I sometimes wonder if little girls are the same way…



  1. I would have never eaten that as a kid in a million years. It contains way to many veggies I hate. To this day I still can’t stand mushrooms (yes, I know, I’m weird.).

  2. The photo alone inspires me to do this. today. now!
