With two kiddos to chase and a full plate of family activities, lunch can be the hardest meal for me to make healthier choices. It’s just a lot easier to snack on the kids meals or make something less than stellar because it is easy and quick.
Which is why when time is short I like to lean on convenience foods, like Lean Cuisine.
This recipe for garlic roasted green beans and mushrooms is almost as simple and quick as heating a Lean Cuisine, so it’s wonderful to round out my lunch or dinner with some delicious roasted veggies that are a snap to make!
I love the flavor of roasted vegetables! You can get fancy with lots of different kinds of spices, but really the garlic, salt, and pepper can’t be beat.
I’m a bit of a salt and pepper snob thanks to my husband. We like to freshly grind ours from Himalayan Pink Salt and Tricolor Peppercorn. Both using my “exotic” salt and pepper and fresh, minced garlic helps to elevate this simple dish to high flavor deliciousness!
