Quick Skillet Roasted Vegetables on Cheese Toast

Written by Allison of Some the Wiser.

Most of the time I feel good about my eating habits. I like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and we eat a lot of them most days of the week. However, after all of the holiday festivities from the past month, I feel like I need to re-focus my menu and food choices.

Considering all the candy canes and pumpkin pies I have consumed recently, it feels really good to cut out sugar this month and find my way back to the fresh produce aisle. It can be harder this time of year to find fresh vegetables, but although there isn’t as much variety in the winter, there are a lot of delicious ways to prepare root vegetables.

These skillet roasted vegetables take only a few minutes to prepare, but look and taste quite impressive. ย When paired with a crusty whole grain bread and a spread of warm goat cheese, these winter vegetables turn into a quick, easy, and delicious meal. ย Best of all, it makes a healthy meal or hearty snack that fits right in to all of my New Year’s resolutions.

  8. Beet rookie here – I’m assuming I need to cook the beets enough to peel them first, right? This looks so yummy I can’t wait to try it!

  9. I have never tried parsnips. the word doesn’t sound appetizing, but it looks like a lot of moms out there love them. I guess I gotta try it out. I am a pretty simple veggie roaster myself: sweet potatoes, reg potatoes, onions, carrots, butternut squash tossed with a few roasted nuts and olive oil, salt and pepper. Yum :) Off to the store to purchase my first parsnip! :)
