I’m on a bit of a health kick lately, what with the New Years and all.
So tonight, I whipped up these delicious roasted green beans with mushrooms. They’re a great go-to side dish. Super easy, totally healthy, and a little different than your traditional steamed green beans.
It’s an irrefutable fact that everything tastes better grilled. Broccoli is no exception.
And since it has been unusually hot this winter, we have been taking advantage of the extended grilling weather. Enjoy it while it lasts, folks! The snow is coming, and I’m sure it’s with a vengeance.
The first time I made this recipe, it was mostly out of laziness. Boy bought broccoli, and I figured we would just roast it (like we do with 99.9% of our vegetables). But I knew our main dish would have me down at the grill anyway, so I just decided it would be easiest to throw the broccoli on there too.
Cauliflower is all the rage these days. I see it scattered across my Pinterest feed, used in place of potatoes, flour, and — in this case — rice!
I’ve always been a cauliflower fan, so I’m happy to use it any way I can. Boy, on the other hand, has a weird aversion to the stuff. He doesn’t hate it, but it’s one of the last veggies he would request for a side dish. I think it has something to do with the fact that his father hates cauliflower. Boys and their daddies.
Aka, the best side dish ever.
Honestly, this isn’t much of a recipe. It’s really just a reminder that it’s always a good idea to throw a whole bunch of chopped vegetables together and roast them.
