I must admit that I didn't really 'get' smoothie bowls when they first started popping up on my social media feeds. Sure, they were gorgeous hues of green, pink and purple with tasty toppings, but isn't it just a smoothie, in a bowl?
These oven roasted yams with simple salsa are the definition of less is more. When our neighbour Johana first brought them over to our house for dinner a couple months ago I couldn't believe that it was 'just a roasted yam and garden fresh salsa'. The flavours were so bold and tasty.
They always say that you don't truly know what to expect from motherhood until you've lived through it. This is definitely true of my experience thus far. It's better than I thought. It's harder than I thought. It's more all encompassing than I thought.
This roasted veggie tray is super easy to prepare, it takes just a bit of chopping and about an hour in the oven. It's the perfect recipe when you need to feed a big group (just double it!) all while giving you time to prep other dishes. It's the ideal balance of starchy and flavourful veggies.
