Holiday Special: Easy Honey Glazed Roasted Veggies

Thanksgiving is just around the corner (precisely three days from now actually), and it’s time to hit the grocery store. If you don’t have your Thanksgiving menu carved in stone just yet, do not fear. I have an easy and healthy side dish option that is sure to liven up the table! Last week my team introduced you to a new gourmet twist on traditional favorites—Oaxacan spiced turkey, mushroom leek stuffing, and brown sugar roasted yams. But today I’m going to introduce you to a side dish of a simpler variety that is still sure to wow your holiday guests.

These honey glazed roasted veggies are practically foolproof but packed with flavor. If you’re in charge of bringing a veggies side this year and need some easy, last minute inspo, you’ll want to add this recipe to your list. Trust me when I say that you’ll be reaching for seconds. Let’s get cooking…
