Need an awesome winter veggie dish? One that’s packed with flavor and nutrients? Look no further. Winter veggies can sometimes feel a little boring, but this dish is anything but. Topped with this bright minty yogurt sauce
Serve it with your favorite protein for a wonderful and balanced meal.
For the Veggies:
5 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1½ tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp cayenne pepper
½-1 tsp paprika
½ head of red cabbage, cut into 1″ pieces
1 red onion, cut into 8 wedges through root end and spread apart
1 small winter squash, like delicata, halved, seeds removed, sliced crosswise ½” thick
1 head broccolini, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1 lemon zested
Additional salt and pepper, to taste
A few mint sprigs (for serving)
What to Do:
Preheat oven to 425°.
Mix garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, and 3 Tbsp. oil in a large bowl.
Add cabbage, onion, broccolini, and squash and toss to coat. Spread on prepared baking sheets and roast until veggies are browned and can be pierced easily with a fork, 30-45 minutes.
Remove from oven and drizzle with vinegar. Top with lemon zest and freshly torn mint leaves. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, if needed.
For the Yogurt Sauce:
1 cup Greek yogurt
2 garlic cloves
1 lemon juiced
½-1 cup mint leaves
½ – 1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
What to Do:
Combine yogurt, garlic cloves, lemon juice, mint leaves, salt and pepper to food processor or blender. (If you don’t have a blender option, just chop the mint and garlic with a knife and stir it all in a bowl!)
Blend until mixed thoroughly.
Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed.
You can swap out any of your favorite winter veggies in this recipe! Cauliflower, brussel sprouts, or fennel would all be delicious as well.
Serve with Garam Masala spiced chicken thighs, lamb, beef, or wild salmon for your protein.
Make sure your squash is cut small enough so that the veggies cook evenly, as this one usually takes the longest.
