The beauty of this dish is that:
- You can really roast whatever you want based on your favorite veggies or fruit! Sweet potatoes? Good. Carrots? Great. Apples? Yum!
- You can serve this as a side dish or even make it a meal. I like to eat this with a veggie burger plopped on top for a quick meal. Or add chicken, chickpeas, black beans or any protein you like.
- Butternut squash
- Fresh spinach
- Craisins or other dried cranberries
I peeled the butternut squash using my favorite butternut squash secret and my favorite Oxo peeler.
I chopped the butternut squash and cauliflower into similar sized pieces.
Then I used my favorite Misto Olive Oil Sprayer to spray the baking sheet and spray a little more olive oil on the veggies. I use this sprayer SO often. For roasting, cooking in a pan, baking, etc. It saves calories and it sprays pure olive oil unlike other store bought sprayers pre-filled with "unreal" ingredients.
I roasted the veggies at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes. I find my oven to be quicker cooking than some recipes call for, so adjust this for your oven. Ovens will definitely vary.
The warm veggies wilts the spinach a little and makes a nice warming dish of goodness!!
This would be a great side dish for a holiday meal. It's so tasty and colorful too.
