Ingredients

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bundle asparagus, washed and trimmed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper

  • 1 bundle rainbow carrots, washed and trimmed
  • 1 head yellow cauliflower

Instructions

  3. Heat oven to 425 degrees. 

  4. Place all vegetables in a large bowl. Pour about 1/2 cup of avocado oil in and mix vegetables until they are completely coated. *I prefer the avocado oil as it has a higher smoke point than other oils.

  6. Place the baking sheets in the oven for 20 minutes. Check veggies to see if they are cooking and browning. I pull the sheets out of the oven and rotate the veggies carefully. Place them back in the oven for another 20 minutes or until they are cooked to your liking. 

  7. Remove baking sheets from oven, and allow them to cool. Place veggies in a serving dish and add the seasoning of your choice. I love Trader Joe's 21 Season Salute, turmeric, and for a kick I add cayenne pepper. Sea salt and black pepper is great too.
