Roasted Veggies Breakfast Bowl

I make a batch of roasted veggies once every couple of weeks. When I haven’t eaten all of my produce and some veggies are looking sad…that’s the perfect time. Just dice them, arrange them on a baking sheet and bake them.

They’re perfect as a side dish, to add to salads, with pasta dishes or like I did today, put an egg on top and call it breakfast.

Here are some tips for roasting veggies that have worked really good for me:

  • Always use parchment paper. No matter how much oil you drizzle on the veggies, starchy veggies always tend to stick.
  • starchy veggies like potatoes, carrots, and parsnips take longer to cook, they should be twice as big as other veggies.
  • Therefore, softer veggies like zucchini, eggplant, squash, cauliflower, should be bigger in size.
  • I never salt my veggies before I put them in the oven. The salt is going to get the moisture out of the veggies and make them steam which means less browning. I don’t know about you but I like brown in my food.
  • And finally, roasting can dry the veggies out if they’re not fresh so don’t hold back on the olive oil or coconut oil. Drizzle generously, toss them with your hands, bake them until done and then season with salt and pepper.

Here I roasted carrots, radishes, cauliflower, corn, and green onions. Yes! green onions, they are delicious when they’re roasted and, they needed to go to a better place. I roasted these veggies on a preheated oven on 400 degrees for 30 minutes.

So many possibilities.

So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
