My guest post today comes from Lindsay, one of my very best friends. Or BLENDS. (yeah…we planned the BLEND Retreat together.) Actually, she twisted my arm into planning the BLEND Retreat with her. I’m so glad she did. And I’m so glad she wrote this post for me. I’m back from Texas, and officially back in my own house, but jumping headfirst into real life after almost three weeks away has been…um, overwhelming. So, please bear with me a while longer. Until then, enjoy Lindsay!
I’m starting a new series called, “How To”. I’m going to teach you guys how to do things.
It’s going to be hilarious.
This first edition just happens to be for Katie’s blog…because, well, she taught me how to roast vegetables over the phone.
If there was such a thing as a “non-foodie”, I’d be her. I don’t actually fancy cooking. Or baking. Or being in the kitchen.
I know. I know. I know.
You “Yes I Want Cakers” are all foodies.
You can’t comprehend.
It just doesn’t appeal to me. Try as I might, I can’t summon up those feel good vibes when it comes to cooking. I like to blog about workouts and how I forget to put socks on my children.
I just didn’t inherit that “cooking gene”.
But I have a family. And a hungry belly. So I kinda sorta have to play kitchen sometimes.
Roasting vegetables might just be the easiest thing in the world. (eh, baking boxed brownies is pretty easy).
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 sweet potato
- 10-12 brussel sprouts
- 2-3 T extra virgin olive oil
- 1 t sea salt
- 1 t cracked pepper
- Any other seasonings you like
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Wash and cut vegetables. Place cut vegetables in a large ziploc bag. Add 2-3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil to bag. Add salt and pepper to bag. Close bag and toss, coating the vegetables.
Place vegetables on cookie sheet. Roast in the oven for about 25 minutes, flipping halfway in between.
Place in a bowl, top it a heaping spoon of hummus and call it good.
From this non-foodie to you, ENJOY!
