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.

Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Broccoli with Crispy White Beans

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!

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...

testing new recipes for my partnership with @cookunity and figured I'd share more about it, in case you're new here or missed the announcement earlier this summer (it's still summer, isn't that crazy?! I'm mentally in fall mode already 🍂☕)⁣
