Crispy Roasted Vegetables

Crispy Roasted Vegetables

Tis the season, and very few side dishes are as satisfying as a bowl of roasted veggies. Roasting gives things a deep complex carmelized flavor, and they're perfect next to a chicken dinner, healthy quinoa bowl, or on their own. We've tossed acorn squash, potatoes, onions, and zucchini in olive oil and pork dust, which gives the veggies a delicious umami flavor much like using bacon. This dish is also really customizable, and you can easily use corn, brussel sprouts, or even apples. Try it out!
