Lime Dijon & Turmeric Roasted Brussels, Broccoli & Dried Cranberries a.k.a. Perfectly Roasted, Naturally Sweet, Magically Delicious & Clean AF!

LIME DIJON & TURMERIC ROASTED BRUSSELS, BROCCOLI & DRIED CRANBERRIES, OHMAHGAWD!!


Y’all know your girl is all about roasted veggies, right? IF YOU DON’T KNOW, NOW YOU NOW, okay?

What you munchkins also now if you’ve been following me for a while now is that usually, I like to add a bit of raw honey, pure maple, yacon or coconut flower syrup to my roasted veggie marinades to sweeten them naturally. Today, I wanted to do a little something different!

For these babies (yes, they are so good, they’re my babies – that’s how much I LOVE them!!!), I added some unsweetened organic dried cranberries instead! And WOW! There’s just something about the taste & texture of roasted cranberries – just the right amount of crispy, but still oh so chewy & oh so sweet! They’re perfect to complement the marinade: from the savouriness of the turmeric, garlic & cumin to the citrus of the lime.

This is a simple & easy dish to whip up for meal prep or if you’re having guests over! (Trust me when I say that you will definitely impress them!). It’s great as a side dish, topping for bowls or even as a snack dipped in some tahini, vegan ranch dip, black bean dip, hummus or tzatziki! I had these veggies for din tonight in a massive vegan buddha bowl & let me tell ya, they pretty much MADE the dish!

Want some homemade tzatziki, tahini, spreads &/or hummus recipes? I GOTCHU.

OH & here’s my dinner:
