Veggies don't have to be bland to be healthy. The lemon and cheese in this recipe bring a ton of flavor to this crispy cruciferous treat, and at just over 100 calories per serving, you won't feel bad reaching for seconds (or thirds). And don't forget to scrub and dry lemons before roasting.
Ingredients: Broccoli, olive oil, lemon, Kosher salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
En papillote is French for "in parchment," and essentially means baking these aromatic veggies in an envelope. The paper seals in all that flavor, allowing the carrots and parsnips to simmer in their own juices. Look for unbleached parchment, which is not treated with chlorine.
Ingredients: Carrots, parsnips, olive oil, unsalted butter, maple syrup, fresh thyme, white wine, Kosher salt, black pepper
Bobby Flay is famous for his strong Southwestern flavors, which are on full display here. Roasted sweet potatoes are a reliable go-to when you need an easy side, but you can elevate them further with a drizzle of maple syrup and chipotles. Plus, you can freeze any leftover chipotles in adobo for the next batch.
Ingredients: Sweet potatoes, unsalted butter, maple syrup, canned chipotle in adobo, Kosher salt
