Roasted Green Beans & Mushroom Farro Salad

Adapted from ClosetCooking
With a relatively short cooking time, roasting veggies is not only incredibly easy to do, but a healthy and delicious way to cook for you and your family! All it takes for a perfect roast are a few of your favorite vegetables, some olive oil, a dash of salt and pepper and some of your favorite fresh garden herbs!

To prevent the vegetables from sticking to the pan, you’ll need to coat them with some olive oil. For more coverage with less oil, try using an oil mister. This week, we are giving away a FREE Orka Oil Mister by Mastrad to our followers —To enter to win, click here!
