Per portion, and I don’t know why the protein came out that way. Nutritional facts are based on an app and are not necessarily exact!

Oh I LOVE roasting things – thanks to the Barefoot Contessa. :)
Let’s see, I roast carrots, potatoes, asparagus, tonight I roasted sliced squash. I’ve learned that everything is better roasted with nothing but olive oil, s&p.
I love roasted broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts. :) so good!
my favorite!! this is one of the only ways i can get joel to eat veggies. i usually squeeze some lemon juice on them when they’re done & sometimes a little parm :)
I am a broccoli junkie, usually steamed. I’ll give this a try!
yummy! I love roasted veggies!
I’ve never tried the broccoli, but I love the asparagus that way! :)
Looks good! We do asparagus all the time…I especially like it done on the grill…asparagus, grape tomatoes, olive oil and salt and pepper. Into the grill basket and onto the grill until the tomatoes are just about to burst…Yum!
Asparagus! I make it the same way – sea salt, pepper, and olive oil. When it is done sometimes I toss with some lemon zest and crushed pistachios. I also roast brussels sprouts.
I LOVE roasted Broccoli, and I usually throw carrots and onions in there too. The tips of the broccoli get so crispy and yummy and full of flavor. I ALWAYS add garlic too (to just about everything) and sometimes lemon pepper. I roast up a batch a couple of times a week so I always have some on hand!
