  • 4 cups diced winter vegetables (I recommend purple potatoes, butternut squash, Brussels sprouts, carrots, parsnips, apples, and/or beets)
  • 1 large yellow onion cut into quarters
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2-3 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt + pepper to taste
  • 3 bars Health Warrior Maple Sea Salt Pumpkin Seeds Bars crumbled
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (I recommend a stinky blue cheese like Stilton)


  • Preheat over to 400. On a large baking sheet, combine your choice of winter vegetables, onion, and garlic. Drizzle with 2-3 tablespoons of avocado oil and season with thyme, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
  • Roast veggie mixtures for 45 minutes, tossing halfway through.
  • Crumble Health Warrior Maple Sea Salt Bars over the roasted veggies and top with 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese. Toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!
