Jessica Sepel is one for keeping her cooking simple. Just like you and I, she often rotates the same meals every week. That being said, as a nutritionist, she knows how important a varied diet is to meeting one’s nutritional needs. So, she does what any health nut would do and packs each dish full of veggies and flavours. Case in point: this roasted vegetable one pan.
“I love to keep my cooking easy and simple, but that doesn’t mean I sacrifice flavour or excitement! There’s nothing boring about this veggie one pan! Roasted lemon wedges are the perfect addition and the goats cheese sauce is divine. Hope you love,” says Jess.
All you need is one pan and a good show on Netflix.
