Roasted Veggies with Kale – A delicious side dish that is perfect for any occasion.

Side dishes are the best part of the meal! Don’t you agree? We have had so much fun cooking up all the lovely fall veggies this month. We’ve played with Winter Squash Stuffing, Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese and Rosemary Spaghetti Squash with Wild rice. Now we have another fantastically delicious dish. More wonderful veggies with an addition of kale!

We weren’t sure how the kale would hold up with all the hearty vegetables but trust us when we say that it is the star of this show. It browns nicely and gives this dish a little crunch. Then you have the sweetness of squash, beets and carrots. A strong cheese on top brings the final touch to complete perfection. We bake it in our favorite enamel pan and it browns it up just right.

There aren’t many dishes that are healthier than this either! Winter squash is high in vitamins A and C, aid in weight loss, reduce risk of heart attacks and strokes, is high in fiber and helps prevent cancer. Beets contain anti-aging properties, are heart healthy, are anti-inflammatory, and have cancer fighting antioxidants. Carrots improve skin, digestion and kidney function and improve liver function. Kale improves sleep, is anti-inflammatory, lowers cholesterol, strengthens the immune system and aids weight loss. What a combination!

Roasted Veggies with Kale


¼ cup butter
2 cloves garlic
6 cups chopped veggies (beets, carrots, winter squash, etc.)
2 cups chopped kale
Real Salt and pepper to taste
strong cheese for garnish (we like blue cheese, feta, and goat cheese)


Melt butter on baking sheet. Spread chopped veggies on the pan. Using a microplane, grate garlic on top of veggies. Bake at 375º until the vegetables start to get tender. Stir a couple of times throughout to coat all the veggies with butter and so they cook evenly. When veggies are almost tender stir in kale and season with salt and pepper. Return to oven and stir every 5-10 minutes until veggies are completely tender. Garnish with cheese of choice.
