Did you happen to cook or enjoy eating a roasted turkey or roast beef for Thanksgiving? If so, you participated in National Roasting Month whether you realized it or not.
You can roast any time of year but November is the month because of all the turkeys roasted at Thanksgiving. If you have an oven, you can roast.
Roasting is not just for meats! There are so many vegetables that can be roasted. Roasting makes your vegetables delicious for their crispness and because you can add your favorite spices.
Additionally, you get good amounts of vitamins B and C from roasting. Both vitamins protect you from infections but vitamin B also helps with cell health, brain function and digestion. Vitamin C helps form blood vessels, cartilage and muscle.
One thing to remember is that roasting can take a bit longer than steaming or boiling your vegetables. If you have an air fryer, check cooking times because they will vary from a conventional oven.
If you haven’t roasted anything but meat or potatoes, try some vegetables. Carrots, brussel sprouts, broccoli, onions and peppers lend themselves easily to roast.
Private Home Health Care hopes you enjoy #NationallRoastingMonth and set your oven to roast something you haven’t roasted before!
