1-Bowl Lemon Rosemary & Basil Roasted Veggies a.k.a. Sometimes, Simple Is Better (& Very, Very Delicious!)

If you guys know, you know, it ain’t a KITK meal prep without a fresh batch of roasted or sautéed veggies. I absolutely love having a load of veggies on hand to get me through the week & I like to use them as add-ins for bowls, chopped up into salads, to munch on throughout the day with some Dijon mustard or as a side dish with some chicken breast or vegan patties or faux meatballs!

I kept things super simple to let the flavours of the rosemary & basil shine & OH BABY DO THEY EVER SHINE. BTW, did you guys know that rosemary & basil are actually quite healthy?

Rosemary is actually anti-fungal, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial & contains tons of antioxidants. It has also been shown to help relieve stress & pain, boost memory,  brain health, circulation & concentration, improve digestion, fight inflammation & calm adrenal fatigue.

Basil is rich in vitamin K & promotes healthy bones, fights inflammation, boosts heart health, skin health (manganese), provides antibacterial & antioxidant benefits, promotes eye health (vitamin A), contains iron, lowers cholesterol, acts as an aphrodisiac (OH HELLO!), boosts skin health (vitamin C) & fights certain types of cancer.

So yes, since these veggies are loaded with TONS of these dried herbs, you can bet they pack a heck of a nutritional punch! NOT TO MENTION ALL THE BENEFITS FROM THE VEGGIES THEMSELVES!

And flavour & texture-wise? We’re talking GOALS. They crispy, crunchy, roasted to perfection, slightly charred, full of flavour, bursting with citrus, a little garlicky & they pair well with just about anything!
