3 Delicious Roasted Veggies That May Surprise You

Roasting veggies is really easy! In my program, my clients talk about cooking and meal planning healthy foods. Roasting veggies is an easy snack option and my clients have enjoyed these 3 veggies. Delicata Squash, Cauliflower and Turnips are not the favorite raw veggies, but when roasted with some season, they burst with flavor! Check out the recipes below. If you are craving more sweet veggies, choose the squash to try first. If you like popcorn, start with the cauliflower. If you are feeling low, start with the root turnip! These are kid approved, so serve to your whole family. Enjoy!
