I think it’s safe to say my obsession with vegetables is quite real. I’ve always loved veggies, and honestly keep them simple most of the time. BUT, I love coming up with ways to spice them up every now and then. I seriously think you can level up any meal with a few simple veggie side dishes.

If you’re looking for new ways to switch up your weekly veggie game, I rounded up 10 of my favorite veggie recipes from the blog. They’re all simple to make, and a perfect way to add some nutritious flavor to your meals.
