Roasted Root Vegetables

Roasted Root Vegetables

Roasted root vegetables is one instant, healthy, delicious and KID FRIENDLY recipe. The best part of this dish is it’s versatility. It is great for kids’ meals, snacks and works even as a side dish. Leftovers can be easily added to kid’s pasta or soup and they won’t even know about it.

Now as the name of this recipe suggests, it calls for root vegetables. I use three root vegetables here but don’t bind yourself with these ones. These are some of my favorites and you can use your favorite root veggies. Root vegetables are in general a healthy option and the method of making this dish further preserves their nutrition value. Baking them with some spices and a dash of olive oil, Voila!

One thing that I really like about root veggies is that they are naturally sweet. So when you bake them, they caramelize in their own sugars which brings out this subtle beautiful flavor. This slightly caramelized flavor pairs so well with roasted cumin powder and garam masala. This flavor combination may sound weird but it sure tastes AMAZING together.

This dish is already a hit with my kiddo. He loves his veggies. And not just him, me and my husband enjoy this dish too. Yes, it is kid friendly yet full of flavors. I bet even adults will enjoy eating it. I highly recommend making this dish. Do share with us if you try this recipe and let us know how you liked it.
