Organic, Real Food on a Budget – Roasted Vegetables

We just had the most amazing week at Black Mountain Ranch in Colorado and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! But first, another Organic, Real Food on a budget tip. As soon as we got home, our CSA box was waiting for us. We got all the organic fruit and vegetables in the photo above for just $20! If you’re not familiar with a CSA, it’s Community Supported Agriculture. Groups of people get together to support nearby farms by agreeing to regularly purchase their produce.

Each week, I get a box of fresh, all organic produce for a fraction of what I’d pay at the store. My produce box also exposes me to vegetables I might not otherwise buy. My favorite way to prepare some of those mystery vegetables is roasting them. Roasting brings out the sweetness in the vegetables – a sure-fire way to get your family to eat them, too.

Think of my recipe as an outline. Use any combination of vegetables you like. And remember, it’s good to use a nice portion of butter when eating vegetables to ensure maximum assimilation of minerals and nutrients. I’ll be back soon with stories from the ranch!

Roasted Vegetables

Serving Size: Serves 4 as a side dish

Roasted Vegetables

Some of my favorite vegetables to roast include: broccoli, cauliflower, corn, onions, zucchini, potatoes, and carrots.


    For the vegetables:

  • 4 cups vegetables, cleaned and cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 3 tablespoons ghee, melted


Preheat oven to 400ºF and adjust rack to middle position. Toss vegetables and butter together and season with salt and pepper. Spread out on a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes and stir. Bake an additional 15 minutes, or until vegetables are golden brown on the edges. Serve immediately.

  1. I love hearing about others csa’s. We actually don’t have a fruit and veggie csa in town(but I’ve signed up for a grain csa :D) so I’m always curious to see what other people get. I will be so excited if we ever get one going here. We love roasting our veggies too. Even veggies my husband wont eat, he enjoyed when they’re roasted :)

    I love your blog, love your recipes and ideas. I too have been looking to go to Black Mountain Ranch and would LOVE nothing more than to hear about your experience. We have been researching dude ranches for a while and this was one of our top picks but I have never met anyone who went there. Can’t wait to hear all about it!
    Thanks for sharing.
