One Pan Roasted Green Veggies

This is a simple recipe for kids to help with preparing and seasoning the vegetables. Make sure all helpers wash their hands first!

Brussels sprouts and asparagus are both folate-rich foods.

The oven’s heat caramelizes the Brussels sprout’s leaves, turning them lacy and crisp while tenderizing their tough core. And that’s just with a basic sprinkling of salt and pepper! Looking for even more flavor? Try Balsamic Roasted Brussels Spouts.
