Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brussels sprouts (if they are large, I cut them in half)
  • 1 handful fresh organic green beans, trimmed
  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Line baking pan with foil.
  3. Cut vegetables and drizzle with oil, salt, pepper, and crushed garlic.
  4. Toss so all the vegetables are coated.
  5. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until fully cooked (I like mine a drop crispy so I turn on broil for about 3-5 minutes at the end).
