Easy Paleo Veggie Recipes – Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower [Feb. 19th, 2015|05:07 pm]
Whole Foods: the anti-Twinkie lifestyle

One of the biggest struggles that people I’ve helped start on the Paleo diet has been to eat enough vegetables. It’s amazing how little the average American actually consumes on a day to day basis.

But to truly thrive, you’re body needs the vitamins and minerals that we get from veggies. So I’m going to do a recipe that is about as simple as it gets. If you don’t like raw broccoli or cauliflower, give this recipe a try. It gives these two super foods some extra flavor. And the addition of fats from olive oil help your body assimilate the nutrients more easily. I’ll be doing another post soon with a couple other easy roasting recipes. One of them involves bacon, and it is DAMN good.

OK, it doesn’t get any simpler than this one. All you need is salt, pepper, broccoli, cauliflower, a bit of olive oil, and about 30 minutes.


1 package of Trader Joe’s broccoli and cauliflower mix

1 Tbsp olive oil (or grass-fed beef tallow if you’ve got it)

1/2 tsp salt

Pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

One note, broccoli cooks more quickly than cauliflower. If you prefer your broccoli to have a bit more texture, then add it with about 15 minutes left.

Dump the bag of broccoli and cauliflower in a bowl. Drizzle olive oil (or your fat of choice) and toss. Then add the salt and pepper. Toss again. Pour the veggies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. You don’t have to use foil or paper, but it makes clean up much quicker.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
