Even if you think you don’t have the time or the energy to cook, remember, you can always roast some vegetables for a fast and healthy meal

Toss the carrots with thawed green beans and sesame seeds and put back in the oven for 10 more minutes or until beans are done

The oil, honey, syrup give the roasted vegetables a lot of flavor without adding a lot of calories, and the sesame seeds add not only flavor, but texture and crunch that elevate these vegetables from ho hum to yes please!

Roasted vegetables keep all their nutrients that can be lost in other cooking methods

The bright colors just make you happy! [and healthy!]

    There is no time that roasted vegetables aren’t the best. Wonder why we waited so long to make them so quickly and easily.
