Simple and Delicious

I’ve been eating a lot of meals that look like this lately:


Oven roasting my simple veggies and beans to give them a delicate, sweet finish. I simply drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle them with sea salt, and pop them in the oven. Then I scamper off to the garden, where I pick a few greens and do a bit of work.

Soon enough, and without much tending, my veggies and white beans have roasted up and River and I sit down to a nutritious lunch.

Here is what her’s looks like:


These thinly sliced, oven roasted carrots are her new favorite vegetable. They are a bit messy, with their olive oil and all, but well worth it for all the yummy nutrition she is getting out of them.

Roasting veggies and white beans is an economical way to prepare a meal that looks and tastes gourmet. I soak and cook my own beans from dried. Besides the olive oil, all the ingredients are quite inexpensive.


Up close and personal with the potatoes, pre-roast. This batch got some fresh, homegrown herbs sprinkled on them.

Here’s to turning simple foods into delicious meals.
