A few weeks ago, we posted a recipe for simple roasted fall vegetables. This recipe is taking that idea up a notch. You’ll want to save this recipe for the day after Thanksgiving for an amazing way to use all of that leftover turkey.
How easy is this recipe? Super.
You’ll roast the vegetables in the same way as our previous recipe- toss your favorites (we suggest the ones below, but feel free to include your own) in olive oil and roast them in the oven until they become caramelized and delicious.
Don’t stop there though. You’ll whip up an easy dressing with superfoods including apple cider vinegar, olive oil, maple syrup for a touch of sweetness, and fresh herbs.
Pair the vegetables with your leftover turkey and toss all of it with the dressing.
Easy. Filling. Tasty.
