‘Enough’ is a feast. ~ Buddhist proverb

Roasting vegetables in the oven couldn’t be simpler or easier, and most of you experienced cooks already know how to do this, in fact,  I’m sure you could probably do this in your sleep! So this is for those who are new to cooking and roasting or perhaps just need a little refresher.

This post actually came about when I took these simple roasted veggies to my weekly “girls-night-out” gathering (sometimes we eat “in”) and one of my friends kept commenting on how good they were. She kept asking how I made them and what I put on them, and I was honestly puzzled, because she is actually a very experienced home cook.

I thought I’d share a few tips!

How to roast vegetables in the oven:

  • Choose veggies that take roughly the same amount of time to roast.  Root veggies (vegetables that grow underground) like carrots, parsnips, beets,  and potatoes, are relatively dense compared to other veggies and take the longest to roast, 30-50 minutes, depending on what size you cut them. Winter squash are medium-dense so take less time, when peeled and diced.
  • If someone were to ask me which veggies are best to roast? I would say, hands-down, root vegetables! Their natural sweetness and earthiness both get enhanced and elevated through roasting.
  • Cut veggies so they are the same thickness. This ensures they roast quickly and uniformly. I try to keep root veggies at ½ inch thick.
  • Roast vegetables on a parchment-lined sheet pan – and use an extra-large one! Or use two! They like space.

  • Group different veggies separately on the sheet pan (instead of mixing them all together) just in case you need to remove some and not others.
  • Keep it simple, with a light drizzle of olive oil, sprinkling of salt and pepper. This allows the flavors of the veggies to really shine.

  • Use a hot, 425 F oven, middle rack.
  • Check at 15 minutes, rotate pan and give a quick toss, continue cooking 5-15 minutes or until fork tender.
  • I always like to include an onion and bell pepper for flavor. (Just a personal preference)
  • Of course you can add a herb – thyme, rosemary, sage- all work well.

Make a big batch of roasted veggies for the busy workweek. Great for meal prep, they go with everything and can be used  in salads, buddha bowls, wraps, or even turned into a soup!

We even enjoy these simple roasted veggies, just on their own, in a bowl, drizzled with Tahini Sauce.

  1. This is my go-to roasted veg recipe. So easy and tasty. I just made three trays of purple sweet potatoes, cauliflower, carrots, red bell pepper, onion, and parsnip. Snacking as soon as they come out of the oven.

  2. Easy to make and very good. Perfect autumn recipe and for cooking root vegetables from the Farmers Market.

  3. Hi!

    I was wondering how long certain roasted vegetables would keep in the fridge? I’m still a noob and like most moms want to feed my kids a rainbow of veggies but really don’t have the time to cook daily. Meal prepping would be best but I struggle knowing if food is still good or how long it will last, how to nest re-heat (without microwave). Randomly came across your blog while looking up vegan recipes … thank you for any tips and tricks in advance!
