Recipe & Video: Maple Roasted Vegetables

1936

Veggies are great, there’s no denying that. But when you find yourself eating a lot of vegetables on the regular, sometimes it’s nice to dress them up a bit. The only problem? Finding a way to elevate your vegetables without cancelling out their nutritional qualities.

These roasted vegetables make for a perfectly balanced dish - healthy and fresh with the right amounts of sweet and savory flavors. Tossing your veggies in a little maple syrup helps to bring out their natural sweetness, while a little salt and pepper go a long way to flavor them up as they roast. And if you didn’t think this dish could get any better, it’s topped off with fresh herbs and a sprinkle of goat cheese. Trust us, these veggies taste (and smell!) as good as they look!
