Roasted Vegetable Medley

When I was a kid, my parents used to let my sister and me watch a show called Veggie Tales.  I am going to dump the lyrics here, but if you don’t recall the show, then YouTube it. I just recently listened to the song and it took me right back to being a toddler. That’s the power of a memory.  I tend to associate food with a lot of experiences because I love to eat. And, I love to cook. And, I love to sing and write.

As a kid, I ate a LOT of vegetables. Here are the Veggie Tales lyrics:

“If you like to talk to tomatoes 

If a squash can make you smile

If you like to waltz with potatoes

Up and down the produce aisle

Have we got a show for you

Veggie Tales, veggie tales, veggie tales, veggie tales

Veggie Tales, veggie tales, veggie tales, veggie tales

Broccoli, celery, gotta be

Veggietales

Lima beans, collard greens, peachy keen

Veggietales

Cauliflower, sweet and sour, half an hour

Veggietales

There’s never ever, ever, ever, ever been a show like

Veggietales

There’s never ever, ever, ever, ever been a show like

Veggietales

It’s time for veggietales

Ha, ha, ha, ha.”

This song makes me remember why I love to cook vegetables. Now that I am an adult, I love experimenting with all kinds of vegetable dishes. And, Yes, I do talk to tomatoes. But, I have yet to waltz with potatoes down the produce aisle. I’m not trying to have the store manager call the paramedics.   

You are going to just go Insane over this Roasted Veggie Medley. And, just three simple vegetables: Carrots, Cauliflower and Broccoli. I simply tossed them with some Dijon mustard, garlic powder, fresh thyme, honey, olive oil, salt, and pepper and roasted them.

Thank you Veggie Tales for Great memories and for cultivating my LOVE of vegetables. And here are catchy lyrics that I made up just for the fun of it, singing it in the Veggie Tales melody of course:

“That was very Easy Peasy

I hope it delights your palate too

I truly hope you like this recipe

Because I made it JUST FOR YOU

Veggie Medley, Veggie Medley, Veggie Medley make you some

Veggie Medley, Veggie Medley, Veggie Medley

 YUM YUM YUM.”
