Recipe: Roasted Vegetables from Farmbox Direct

There are all sorts of meal and produce delivery boxes popping up - as is with any fad that works once - and I had a new one contact me to check them out. It's called Farmbox Direct - I really like that it has a wide delivery area - 


Farmbox Direct has two types of boxes: Organic and Natural. They have 3 sizes: small, medium & large. Prices range from $34.95 to $60.95. So what did I get? 

Pretty snazy video - right? Hey - I'm on Periscope now too - be sure to follow me @foodhussy!

I got these really beautiful carrots and knew what I was going to do! Roasted vegetables! It's just when you have such beautiful veggies - it's a shame to not make something beautiful out of them!

Roasting veggies is so simple - you cut up all your veggies into like-sized pieces. You want them all about the same size so they cook evenly. Spread them out on a pan and preheat the oven to 425. I then drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the veggies - toss them a bit - then drizzle again. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and you'r ready to go!

AREN'T THEY GORGEOUS?!

I had the beautiful carrots, red pepper, asparagus and green beans. I cooked them for 20 minutes or until fork tender. My oven sucks - so I'm always having to raise the temp to keep it to hold heat. 

I had some chicken breast left over - so I grabbed a saute pan quick and sliced the chicken and heated it up in a touch of olive oil. I could have microwaved but the stove made it feel fresh-cooked. Then I piled on some roasted veggies and went to town. The veggies were great and they were juicy enough with the olive oil & balsamic vinegar that you didn't need anything else with them.

Super healthy and happy chicken with roasted vegetables. Yum!
