  1. In a small mixing bowl, stir together the poppy seeds, white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, and sea salt.

  2. Use immediately then store the remainder in an air-tight container.

  3. I found even with additional salt in the mix that I still like to salt and pepper the vegetables additionally. You may find you like this too. Feel free to up the salt amount or just add more salt to your dish when you use this seasoning mix.

Roasted Carrots and Broccoli

  1. Preheat oven to 450° and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Using a bias cut, slice 1/4" thick slices from the carrots then divide broccoli into medium-sized florets. I usually buy broccoli florets in a bag from Costco, but some of them are still too large. Aim for as evenly sized broccoli florets.

  3. Place sliced carrots and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. Add olive oil, everything-but-the-bagel seasoning, and additional salt and pepper. Stir to coat.

  4. Broccoli absorbs an unusual amount of oil. Add additional oil as needed to coat all vegetables but not pooling on the bottom of the bowl.

  5. Spread in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stir, then continue baking until carrots are soft and broccoli is browning on the edges, 15-25 more minutes.
