Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts Carrots and Broccoli Casserole

Oven-Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Carrots, and Broccoli Casserole are tossed together with chopped onions, extra virgin olive oil, and seasonings, then oven-roasted for about 35 minutes until the vegetables are tender and softened.  No creams. Just a simple vegetable casserole that is very light, easy to make, and big on flavor.  Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, and Paleo.

Recently, my daughter has been asking me to make her only paleo dishes.  Really?  Paleo?  What’s that? 

I only heard about “the Paleo diet” a while back on an episode of Doctor Oz.

I found out Paleo means eating the same way during cave times. Whaaaat??  

Basically, it means you can only eat meats, fish, nuts, leafy greens, veggies, seasonal fruits, and seeds. That’s it.

That means, saying NO to pasta, bread, rice, all dairy products, and her favorite things like granola bars, potato chips, and chocolate. 

I said, realistically, I don’t think that’s going to sit well with your father.

Then, she just looked at me with those bright blue puppy-like eyes. OK, so I told her I will try a dish.

 
 

Surprisingly, because this is a very simple vegetable casserole, and nothing fancy, it really turned out to be fantastic! 

Not to mention, relatively easy because all the vegetables are roasted together.

NO cream or any cheese was added. The Italian bacon added, known as pancetta, slowly bakes into a crispy salty bacon, giving the veggies a ton of flavor.

If you don’t have any pancetta… don’t worry!  You can substitute with prosciutto or any lean bacon; either one will add smoky flavors to the vegetables. 

Since my daughter loved it, she now calls it her favorite “new” veggie dish.

We’d like to think this is our version of a “Paleo casserole dish,” maybe because it’s non-dairy and gluten-free.  I’m not sure.  Regardless, it’s definitely big on flavor.

Whether this is really paleo or not, it doesn’t matter to me, as long as my daughter enjoys this, and knowing she’s eating her vegetables- makes me happy!

Enjoy!

  1. We oven roast vegetables several times a week but I never thought of this combination – which looks wonderful. We planted some brussels sprouts in our garden and can't wait to see what happens. Lovely recipe and good for your daughter to explore other ways of eating. We eat very few carbs anymore but when we do – we love to make it special. The colors are wonderful!
