Roasted Green Vegetables

Roasted Green Vegetables


Green vegetables can be very, very delicious – and it’s quite easy to make them amazing! Green vegetables don’t seem to be very popular worldwide (especially amongst children) BUT that is only because they are usually not cooked the right way.

Roasting zucchini’s, cauliflower, broccoli & brussel sprouts with a drizzle of oil, a few delicious herbs, sea salt and cracked pepper is all that you need to do to make them unforgettable.

Let me tell you, boring boiled vegetables have nothing on this yummy recipe. Let’s start a green vegetable revolution and make our friends & family fall in love with green veggies again!

This recipe is super simple, totally healthy & free from any nasty, processed ingredients!
