    Ingredients for Roasted Carrots and Broccoli

    • Broccoli: Cut a fresh head of broccoli into smaller florets. You could also make this with half a head of cauliflower.
    • Carrots: Peel the carrots and cut them into slices before tossing them with the rest of the ingredients and roasting. You could also use baby carrots if that is what you have on hand.
    • Oil: Oil helps to crisp up the veggies. You can use olive, coconut, or vegetable oil.
    • Seasonings: Italian seasonings, garlic and onion powder, salt, and pepper.
    • To serve: I like to serve these with some grated parmesan and lemon wedges, though this is optional.
