We discovered roasted broccoli last year at our house, and veggies have never been the same. I don’t steam broccoli anymore because roasting is so easy and delicious, and holds more of the nutrition in. Great as a simple side dish, or even to go in a casserole, you will love roasted broccoli!
We wanted carrots to go with our broccoli, so I added a big handful to the bag before I tossed it with the avocado oil. They finished roasting at the same time, and they were a fabulous addition to our meal! I added freshly ground Real Salt and pepper, and they tasted buttery when they came out of the oven! Since no butter is used (but we love butter at our house!) it was a healthier choice with all the flavor! Avocado oil is my go-to oil for roasting because it has such a high smoke point (500 degrees!). Other oils can be substituted for roasting, but since this is my current favorite, it’s what I list in the recipe.
- 2 disposable plastic cups
- an old pencil
- a can of beer OR DIY Yeast Snail Bait
- DIY Yeast Snail Bait:
- 1 Tbsp of flour
- 1 tsp of sugar
- 1 tsp of yeast
- 2 cups of water
- Dig a hole to fit one of the cups in your vegetable or flower garden, near your plants.
- Place one cup inside the hole, making it level with the ground, so the snails don't have to climb far.
- Carefully poke 4 drainage holes in the bottom of the remaining cup. Poke two more holes near the top, just under the lip, for the pencil to go through. This will ensure a gap between the cups so you can easily remove the top one to dispose of the snails the next morning.
- Place the cup with the holes and pencil inside the cup buried in the ground.
- Pour the beer or DIY Yeast Snail Bait inside the cup, leaving about an inch of headspace. The snails will climb down into the cup, and drown in the beer.
