Have you checked out my recipe for roasted veggies?? If not, you should really get on that.
They’re amazing. Seriously. Simple, delicious, fast. We eat them constantly.
The other day I was tasked at making a side dish to take to a friend’s house for dinner, and I knew that I wanted to roast some veggies, but what I added to the mix made them even more delicious!! Give it a try and add some dates…YUM!
Roasted Veggies with Dates:
- ~3-4 cups of fresh green beans, snapped in half
- 1 cup of mushrooms cut into large pieces
- 2 cups of dates, not pitted
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. yellow curry powder
- 3/4 tsp. sea salt
- 3/4 tsp. ground cracked pepper
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 14 tsp. garlic powder
In a large bowl, mix together the vegetables, dates and olive oil. In a separate small bowl mix together your spices. Sprinkle the spices over the veggie/date mix and spread out onto a baking sheet. Bake at 425F for 25 minutes. The dates will still be soft but will have a totally different vibe to them. Make sure to warn others to spit the pits out! Serves 4-5 people.
