Making Veggies Taste Good… The Healthy Way

I know they’re boring sometimes. I really know.

But for the most part….?

Vegetables are underrated. If you season them well and cook them right, you’d actually really enjoy eating them. 

Many of us grew up with the ideas that veggies were a punishment and didn’t have to be healthy. But if you decide to actually enjoy them and just learn how to cook them well, you’re ahead of the people who think they need to “force” themselves to like something that’s already good.

Eating at least 3 servings of dark leafy greens a day is a great health goal to start with (and if you’re already doing that, shoot for 6)!

One of my favorites to make for a balanced plate is broccoli. One of the most plain veggies that you can do a lot with flavor-wise. ab your Recipe Eboo

Here’s how I make it taste ah-maaazing:

Cut about 1 cup of broccoli into bite-sized pieces and coat with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

Roast it at 400 degrees F for about 20 minutes so that you see a light char, but the nutrients are mostly still intact.

When it’s done, sprinkle nutritional yeast, turmeric, and a squeeze of lemon on top for some great flavor. I use nutritional yeast as an easy source of vitamin B12 and cheesy flavor. The turmeric supports your immunity and overall health SO well! These seasonings plus the garlic powder and olive oil are such healthy ways to flavor your food without relying on dairy or a condiment that’s not amazing for you.

You can find the brand of Nutritional Yeast I use here. 

This goes perfectly with things like brown rice, pasta, plant-based protein, or with other roasted veggies. 

Try it out and let me know how you like those flavors!
