Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Broccoli with Crispy White Beans

What makes this easy side dish special are the white beans, which crisp up, giving this veggie-packed side dish a "fried" crunchy texture without the, well, frying! Serve it as a side with your favorite protein or as a bowl meal, with a fried egg on top.

Now that this isn’t just a blog for spiralizer recipes, I can share my simple and creative veggie dishes that I make regularly at home for easy weeknight meals that are packed with flavor and veggies.

Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Broccoli with Crispy White Beans

One of my tricks for making veggies extra special is to give them a crunchy element, for a “fried” texture without the frying. To do this, I add in starchy beans! It’s such an easy thing to do, takes seconds, and as the beans roast alongside the veggies, they crisp up, and the end result will wow your tastebuds.

I love the classic broccoli and potatoes combo here, especially because they’re easily seasoned with garlic, salt, and pepper for a steakhouse-y like heartiness. And when you reheat these (I like to pop them in the oven or you can always use a microwave) the beans still hold up their crispiness, which is a bonus.

Serve this dish as a side to your favorite protein, like a good salmon or even a piece of fancy steak or baked chicken. And if you’re not a meat eater but do want some more protein, top this with a fried egg – the creamy yolk, the crispy beans, and fluffy broccoli will have you coming back to this recipe over and over again!
