Roasted Vegetables with Sage

Carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower are all prime examples of veggies that are perfectly delicious when enjoyed raw but can really sing when you add in just a few aromatics and some heat. So, if you need a quick and elegant side loaded with comforting flavor, all you need is some olive oil, garlic, herbs, a bit of lemon, and a bag of Taylor Farms Vegetable Medley. This medley contains carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower, all pre-washed and prepped to make your time in the kitchen a little easier. After a little time roasting in the oven — roughly enough time to enjoy a quick episode of your show of choice — you’ll be all set to savor a fresh batch of restaurant-worthy roasted veggies that can pair well with any number of dishes.
