Roasted Vegetables

Guess What??

This post is kind of two recipes in one! Here you’ll find recipes for both oven roasted broccoli and fingerling potatoes!

I served this to my family with Ginger Maple Chicken, and as good as the chicken was, the seasoned broccoli was honestly my favorite part. Believe me…that’s saying something! As a child I wouldn’t eat broccoli. About 3 years ago I decided it wasn’t so bad, but in the past year I’ve enjoyed it less and less. My mom has always steamed it and I usually just add salt. It’s ok but it’s nothing great. This recipe, however, is great!

I started by cutting both types of vegetables small…the broccoli I cut into small florets and the fingerling potatoes I washed and sliced in half. After placing them in a singer layer on parchment paper on a cookie sheet, I used a basting brush to apply a small amount of olive oil on each veggie.

I then sprinkled Mrs. Dash seasoning, salt, and pepper over the broccoli. I also mixed in small/medium pieces of bell pepper. For the fingerlings I chose Lawry’s seasoned salt.

Personally, I was so happy with the way these vegetables turned out! I was happy for multiple reasons. First of all, the fingerlings were yellow AND purple potatoes and were from a local farmers’ market! Second, everything had so much flavor while being HEALTHY VEGETABLES! I hope your kids, even if they are picky eaters, give these veggies a try because they might be a hit! I hope this is the best broccoli you’ve ever eaten!

Oven-Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Yield: About 4 servings

Ingredients

  • About 2.5 lbs fingerling potatoes
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Lawry’s original seasoned salt

Instructions

  1. Lay fingerling potatoes in singer layer on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with a fairly generous amount of Lawry’s seasoned salt.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes. Enjoy!

Note: Despite the already small size of the potatoes, I cut them in half unless they were super small. You may choose to keep them whole as long as they are a consistent size!
