A new outlook on veggies

I have to confess to you that I’m not a fan of eating veggies. My main reason for not wanting to eat vegetables is because they have no taste. Haha! 😀 Still, I do like to consume healthy foods, and I know several of veggies is a part of living a healthy life. Since that fact, I do my best to make them taste yummy. When I discovered roasting them, I was amazed at how it changed the taste from just being steamed or sauteed. Roasting imparts a delicious slightly sweet and smokey flavor that makes veggies pretty amazing. A few weeks ago, I posted a blog post how to make broccoli taste delicious, and it’s an excellent example of that. If you are the same as me and want to live a healthy lifestyle, but you do not want to eat bland veggies. Then may I suggest making them outstanding by roasting your vegetables?

Oven Roasted Green Beans


1 lb of frozen green beans
2 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
About 10 grinds of fresh ground pepper (or to taste)
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

2. While oven is preheating, prepare a lipped baking sheet with aluminum foil


3. In a medium bowl combine olive oil, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. Toss mixture into the baking dish. Spread beans onto a baking sheet. Stir beans and mixture until well blended.


5. Roast for 30 minutes (at 15 minutes remove to stir)


6. Enjoy!

So I, unfortunately, will not be able to post any crockpot recipes for awhile because my family recently had a little accident with the glass top/lid thingy. So until we get another one I will be posting ones that require using the oven or stove. Moreover, I promise 🙂 I will do my best to not make it stressful for you as much as possible.

Tomorrow I will teach you how to make Spaghetti. Yummy. 🙂

Have a great night, cooks. 🙂
