When people tell me they don’t like to eat vegetables, my go-to suggestion is that they try roasting them. Roasting vegetables at a high heat helps caramelize the natural sugars found in most veggies. And, those natural sugars help cover any bitterness in the veggies and gives them great flavor.

Most vegetables can be roasted between 400-450°F. I also suggest using a heat-safe oil to help the veggies brown, which gives them even more flavor. Some of my favorite heat-safe oils include coconut oil and avocado oil (see my complete list of the safest cooking oils).

Nutrition Highlights

  • Brussels sprouts are in season in the winter and spring, as they like cool weather. I just got a bunch of them delivered in my CSA box. These vegetables are part of the cruciferous family which is being studied for its role in fighting cancer.
  • Brussels sprouts pair nicely with carrots, especially since carrots are high in natural sugars. Carrots are also a very healthy food.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The first step of this roasted vegetable recipe is to wash and chop the veggies. I also recommend patting the vegetables dry before you chop them. This will help the oil stick to the vegetables.

Step Two

The next step is to chop the veggies so they are fairly uniform in size. The carrots can be chopped into 1-inch slices and the sprouts can be cut in half.

Step Three

After you’ve stirred in the coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt and pepper, then you just need to pour the mixture onto a baking sheet.

After the veggies have roasted for 35 minutes, they will be browned, crispy, and sooooo delicious! Serve them warm.
