Roasted Veggies with Homemade Vegan Pesto

EASTER is HERE! Well, almost. Every holiday my roommates and I spend here in Hermosa Beach, California instead of going back to the East Coast to see our families, we host a potluck of some sort. This Sunday, we're hosting an Easter Brunch Potluck and I'm getting pretty excited. On the menu at our house so far is a ham, scrambled eggs, carrot juice mimosas, and these roasted veggies with homemade vegan pesto, which I know you're going to love.

I've actually made this dish pretty often this past winter. I switch up the veggies based on what's on sale and what I'm feeling that week, but for the most part it's a mix of root vegetables, fresh and in season in the winter. Pesto goes good on, well, basically everything, and to be wholistic belly approved and gut friendly, I omit the dairy and load it up with lemon juice and a good source of salt to make up for the flavor.

When I personally attend potlucks I try and bring a vegetable or some sort of healthy dish that I know I can eat. I definitely indulge a bit on day's like this, especially in the dairy department, but I try not to blow it 100% and still get some good sustenance in my body.

Check my Instagram stories @wholisticbelly for all the yummy meal prep my roommates and I do and for a peak at what our other friends will be bringing to the Easter table! I hope you enjoy this recipe, and your holiday!
