¼ cup broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces

¼ cup cauliflower florets, cut into bite-sized pieces

¼ cup Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced (2 whole)

¼ cup matchstick carrots

1 shallot, thinly sliced

1 tsp dried parsley

1 tsp olive oil

2 tbsp lemon turmeric dressing*


Preheat the oven to 350℉.

Combine vegetable and parsley in a small bowl and toss with olive oil. Spread on a baking sheet in a single layer.

Roast for 10 to 20 minutes, or to desired tenderness. Toss with lemon turmeric dressing and serve immediately.

*Turmeric stains anything it touches so use caution!


1 serving, 285 calories

Hack: Matchstick carrots can be found in the packaged section of the produce department. Freeze any leftover carrots for use in cooking

Hack: Check the produce department of your local grocery store for pre-cut broccoli and cauliflower florets to avoid having to buy an entire head. Frozen broccoli and cauliflower florets would also work in this recipe.

Hack: Check the produce department for loose Brussels sprouts and shallots. If you don’t see them, ask a clerk if they’re available.

Hack: Shop the salad bar if you just need a small amount of an item that you don’t think you’ll use again before it “goes over”.

  1. I love vegetables and being able
    to make a simple recipe is such a good thing.

    Honestly, I love mixing different kinds of vegetables together,
    because the consistencies are different and the taste too.
    So having multiple vegetables can actually make it 
    a more interesting and fun thing to eat vegetables.

    Eating vegetables should not be seen as something negative,
    while I may not  be a vegan and a meat lover, eating vegetables
    is just as important as getting proteins from meat.

    Great article, and guide on how to make warm-vegetable salad.
    Is it a sin to add cheese or other dairy products to a salad?
    Is my only question hehe

    1. A balanced diet is always important no matter what your eating style!!  And adding cheese never a sin.  Never 😉

  2. I have two methods for warming up a salad. And I think it may be useful to share here. In my first method, I like is to combine the greens and toppings with the unheated dressing in a stainless-steel mixing bowl. And then hold the bowl over a burner and toss the salad until the greens just begin to wilt. For those of you that don’t have a stainless-steel mixing bowl, my second method is to heat the dressing in a pan.
