Guess what I had for dinner last night? Yep. You know it! Roasted veggies. I’m not going to say I’m addicted to roasted vegetables, but I might be addicted to roasted vegetables. Then again, I could eat my weight in sauteed vegetables too. And, the same applies to raw broccoli and hummus, my favorite snack ever. So, I guess I love just love vegetables; I’m a lover of vegetables, in all forms; I’m an equal opportunity vegetable lover.

Much like the last time we talked roasted vegetables, providing a recipe for this is silly, but I’m going to do it anyway. If I die tomorrow, I want my obituary to include something about how much I love roasted vegetables. No, seriously.

Normally when I roast veggies I go pretty simple with it – grapeseed oil, salt, pepper, 450, done. This time around I added paprika and cayenne pepper for color and a little spice, but we’re still talking 5 minutes of prep time.

BTW – The sauteed green beans in the photo are equally as easy – throw some olive oil in a pan, add your green beans, sprinkle them with some salt and pepper, saute until brown, toss on some lemon zest, devour!

PS – I’ve gone over roasting vegetables in greater detail here.

Roasted Cauliflower


  • 1 head cauliflower (cut into large pieces)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or grapeseed)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoons cayenne
  • 3/4 teaspoons sea salt (or kosher salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoons black pepper


Combine all ingredients and toss until evenly coated. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast at 450 for 45-50 minutes.

Heat oil in large skillet. Add beans, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and saute until browned and soft (I like them extra soft and kind of shriveled, you may prefer them firmer.) Remove from heat and add lemon zest.
