Beautiful Oven Roasted Veggies

That bitter chill of winter is creeping its way into our lives, our homes and resting in our bones. And I am nowhere near ready for the winter. We have barely had the fall. How about taking a chill pill winter?!

The weather is at that in-between point where the building we are living in has not gotten the memo that it is cold af outside, so there’s no heat yet (we got heat on a 55 degree day, which makes no sense). So what do we do to keep it warm up in here?! ROAST EVERYTHING.

And I mean EVERYTHING.

Things just seem to taste better once basking in the glory that is the oven, including desserts, macaroni smothered in cheese, sweet potatoes, stuffed peppers (you know you love ma recipe, go here). I can go on and on.

But nothing compares to the food orgasm that follows roasting some seasonal veggies.

I’m here to tell you, show you, teach you that this is SUCH A SIMPLE PROCESS and all it truly needs is your time and your love. And a delicious sauce to pour over it (I’m loving tahini, don’t worry the recipe will be yours).

These suckers are so lip smacking good, you will be licking your fingers (I use my hands to eat these, I mean, come on, why wouldn’t you?!). You can easily roast all your veggies and turn this into a meal in itself (not need to be extra if you’re tired, we’re not judging you).

Super Stuffed Peppers {Almost Vegan, Perfectly Delish}

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (4)

When life gets insane in the membrane, meals that are simple to put together and extra nourishing really make everything that much better.

I’m not going to lie, the last few weeks have been challenging for me. I’m adjusting to a new work schedule and I think I’ve spread myself pretty thin (just picture this: I work three jobs- not complaining, I love what I do- I’m planning a wedding that’s 2 months away, I still need to have the time to eat, sleep, cook, get mani pedis and enjoy summer).

Being human is a challenge sometimes.

Some days we sleep less.

Some days we eat less or more.

Balance is such an illusion. It’s not real. We can truly have it all but we don’t need to sacrifice it all in order to have it. I’m not a delusional holistic health guru. I exist in this real world. Sometimes there is no time to slave away in the kitchen and it is too damn hot to turn on the mother flippin’ oven or even stand near a stove and pizza sounds like the best option.

This recipe was born on a day it wasn’t too hot to put on the oven and I just didn’t want a ton of pots going at the same time. I just wanted to take what I already had in my fridge, put it together in a semi-cohesive, orgasmic, healthy dinner.

I’ve done this a handful of times over the last month or so and to be honest, it only gets more and more delicious (and random af).
