There is a reason Rachel McAdams movies exist.
Rachel McAdams movies exist because sometimes, on a random Wednesday evening, you just need a good cry. And there is nothing that gets the tears flowing like watching The Vow, The Notebook, or The Time Travelers Wife.
A night like this might also call for a glass of red wine, some good chocolate, or perhaps a fuzzy blanket and cat snuggles.
And when you’re really an emotional mess? I recommend roasted vegetables. I mean, a gal’s gotta eat and something full of fiber just makes sense in a situation like this.
Plus, when you combine the vegetables with curry powder and turmeric? It’s the perfect balance of flavor and flair. It helps, I promise.
I love this dish as a simple side to any entree. The prep is minimal, making it a perfect go-to option for a quick weeknight meal. If you’re not a fan of nuts, feel free to leave the almonds out and if you’re feelingn extra decadent, I really love to add a drizzle of olive oil just before serving.
