This is so easy and you can definitely use fresh or dried basil which means that this recipe is one you can make all year round. I know your guests will love it once Thanksgiving hits too. I know, let’s not even talk about that yet, (Except I could have a new baby! EEEEEK!!) but it’s true.

Just start by slicing up your veggies, tossing them with the ingredients leaving out a little of the basil and cheeses and roast it all up in the oven. The last few minutes top with the additional cheese and then sprinkle the last of the basil on for serving. If it’s winter and you don’t have fresh basil you can garnish with a little parsley. Booyah!

Are Vegetables Hard to Digest?

Some vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and kale contain high fiber and cellulose, which are hard to digest.

But, eating these vegetables reduces your risk of cancers of the digestive tract.

Carrots, winter squash, summer squash (especially peeled), starchy tubers (yams, sweet potatoes, potatoes), turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, beets, plantains, yaro, and Yuca are generally easier on the digestive system.
