Red Quinoa with Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Carrots

I really, really, really LOVE eating vegetables this way.  It is so simple, quick, easy, and they always taste great, always!  Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, add about 2 Tbsp. of ghee to a 9 X 9 baking dish (more ghee for a bigger dish) and place in oven until melted.  Add your vegetables to fill about half the pan, toss in melted ghee, cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for about 20-30 minutes.  The length of cooking time will depend on type of vegetable and how cooked you prefer them.  I prefer them crunchy and not completely cooked, so my time is on the shorter side.  Remove the foil the last 5 minutes or so to allow the vegetables to brown a bit.  Toss with some Coconut Aminos (my new best friend in the kitchen), quinoa for a punch of protein if you wish, and enjoy. That’s it!  So easy!  I have cooked the following vegetables like this, and I am telling you, it never gets old.  I could (and do!) eat it almost every night for dinner.  I have cooked the following vegetables this way:

  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • brussels sprouts (halved and outer leaves removed)
  • asparagus
  • carrots
  • beets
  • sweet potatoes
  • parsnips

I always make enough for leftovers, and this is usually what I eat for lunch, along with some sauteed spinach or kale and usually scrambled eggs.
