Jalapeno Roast

Sharing is caring!

Jalapeno Roast has a slight flavor of heat to it. An optional addition is carrots and baby potatoes. The roasted vegetables soak up some of the juices from the bottom of the roast and have amazing flavor.

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free. and many are dairy free. If you are new to my blog then you might not be aware that I have autoimmune illnesses that have led me to revamp my diet to improve my health. With the help of a functional doctor, my inflammation levels have been reduced, my energy level has improved, I have lost weight. These are just some of the ways that eating this way has improved my life.

Sometimes it is hard to come up with a new recipe. I pray every day for inspiration and inspiration always shows up. Sometimes a recipe takes a while to be developed. A small portion of a recipe may be rolling around in my head for weeks or a month before the whole concept is ready to experiment with.

I don’t just have a spice drawer I also have a cabinet full of spices. Since beginning this blog I have purchased several new ones that I had never heard of before. I have also created some of my own spices or spice blends. For example, my Nevada Sauce Salt takes some time dehydrating but is so worth it. I also have a Powdered Jalapeno that I created to add a slight heat to my foods. So I decided to add these two spices to my roast and create a new recipe. I really enjoy the aroma and flavor of fresh cracked pepper so I decided to add this to the mix as well.

The flavor of this roast was amazing. I had bought some beautiful fresh carrots with the greens attached. I pull off one of the carrot greens and added it to the top of a slice of roast for decoration. I hope you enjoy this roast. This recipe uses my Nevada Sauce Salt and Powdered Jalapeno, make the seasonings ahead of time.
