Pizza-Spiced Roasted Vegetables a.k.a. I Swear, You’ll Think You’re Eating Pizza!!

OKAY, so I didn’t realize the marinade for these veggies smelled (let alone, tasted) like pizza, until my sister so rightfully mentioned it while they are roasting!

All I could hear from upstairs was “KEL, the kitchen smells like pizza”.And you know what? She was right! So let’s call these “PIZZA-SPICED ROASTED VEGGIES”, how ‘bout it?!

The marinade is AS ALWAYS, super simple + made with ingredients you most likely already have on hand, except maybe one that is definitely worth picking up… drumroll please… MAPLE SYRUP WINE VINEGAR! It actually takes about a year to make because it’s made from pure maple syrup, which is made into wine & then fermented with “the mother” to become vinegar & to preserve all the beneficial enzymes for gut health! If you don’t have it, you can use coconut vinegar or any other vinegar as a substitute!

These veggies are crispy, crunchy, roasted to perfection, bursting with flavour & no, I wasn’t kidding… REMINISCENT OF PIZZA!
