Ingredients:

1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half if small, quartered if large
1 pound mushrooms, halved or quartered if large
2 cups yellow onions, sliced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Place the brussels sprouts on one baking sheet and the mushrooms and onions on the other, and toss each with salt and pepper to taste and 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. Roast together in the oven, for 20 minutes, mixing halfway through. You'll know they are ready when the brussels sprouts are browned on the edges and tender. And the mushrooms and onions should be soft with juice on the baking sheet.

Be sure to measure your serving size according to your current meal phase. Make adjustments to ingredients as necessary.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Ingredients:

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Heat the oven to 400.
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes into sticks that are about 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long.
  3. Toss sweet potatoes with the olive oil and set aside.
  4. Mix the spices, salt, and pepper in a small bowl, and sprinkle them over the sweet potatoes. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spread fries on top of it so that none are overlapping.
  5. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown and crisp on the bottom. Then, turn them over and cook until the other side is crisp – for about 10 minutes more.

Pro-tip: Prior to cooking, soak pre-cut sweet potatoes in water for an hour. This will help make the fries crisper.
