Roasted Winter Vegetable Plate

Looking to incorporate more veggies into your diet? This is the perfect winter plate. I love to eat lightly for dinner and this plate is warm and nourishing, but you’ll never feel too heavy afterward.


Ingredients 

  • 1 head cauliflower, trimmed of extra leaves
  • 1 honeynut squash, halved and de-seeded
  • 1 carton of cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Serves 2 as a main 4 as a side.


Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. On a large baking tray, place cauliflower, squash halves and mushrooms.
  3. Toss all the vegetables in sesame oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Sprinkle turmeric over the cauliflower head. This will make it a beautiful golden color.  
  5. Roast for 45 minutes.
  6. You may need to add ½ cup water to the bottom of the baking pan if your home or oven tends to be on the dry side just so veggies don’t dry out in the roasting process.

Marinated Arame with Sesame and Scallion

arame

This mineral packed sea vegetable is a phenomenal kidney tonic. Its boost of calcium, magnesium and iodine also support thyroid health, especially when paired with heart healthy fats like avocado. This is favorite of mine topping the infamous avocado toast! You can also serve in a roasted veggie bowl or delicate topping to stir fry.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dried Arame

  • 2 Tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar

  • 2 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil

  • 2 Tablespoons Toasted Sesame Seeds

  • 2-3 scallions thinly sliced

Serves between 2-4 people


Directions

  1. Soak the arame in cold water for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Bring a small pot of water to boil.
  3. Add arame and boil 10 minutes, remove, drain and rinse.
  4. I like to use as little water as possible, so that when the arame is removed you can then reduce down the broth to 1-2 Tablespoons and add this mineral rich broth back into the dish.
  5. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients.
  6. Add in the arame and the couple tablespoons of the reduced broth.
  7. Mix to combine and serve as desired.
