Roasted Veggies (Yep, another one!)

Did I mention I'm on a strict food plan for the next 3 weeks?  Every 6 months or so the hubby and I complete a 21 day "detox."  I feel amazing once we are done but it's really tough!  (plus I'm a wimp)
So, long story short, we are eating a lot more veggies over the next few weeks. We already eat pretty clean but this is a bit more strict.  Most of our veggies are consumed raw but these are a nice treat. 
I get to eat as much veggies as I want!
Roasted Carrots

Ingredients
1 pound of carrots (or more)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

Place trimmed carrots, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir to coat. Pour onto a baking sheet (I used a large pan), and place on center oven rack.

Roast in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, shaking pan every 7 minutes for even browning. Reduce heat when necessary to prevent burning. Serve immediately.

Roasted Asparagus and Onions

Ingredients
1 pound of asparagus, trimmed and cut in half
1 onion, sliced and quartered
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

Place trimmed asparagus, onions, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Stir to coat. Pour onto a baking sheet (I used a large pan), and place on center oven rack.

Roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat when necessary to prevent burning. Serve immediately.

 I served both of these alongside the Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Garlic.  The roasted veggie trio was a HUGE hit!  
The brussels sprouts were delicious!!!
