These roasted vegetables are super easy to make! Mixed vegetables are tossed in an herbed mustard sauce, then roasted until perfectly tender and charred.
These roasted vegetables are made in a sheet pan, and make a perfect side dish for any healthy meal!
I don’t know about you, but I’m big on meal planning. Each week I sit down and plan out our dinners for the upcoming week, as well as what recipes I’ll be making and testing for The Chunky Chef… then I make my grocery list from there. Sounds super organized right? Totally not lol.
For some reason, I have no problem coming up with the main dishes, but I always seem to either totally forget the sides, or stick to the same old steamed green beans. Major bummer!
Usually my kiddos will only eat their veggies if they’re covered in cheese, or practically dripping with butter… but that doesn’t do anyone any good. So I’ve started roasting more and more vegetables, and they are DELICIOUS that way!
These oven roasted vegetables are loaded with amazing tangy and savory flavors. When combined with the natural sweetness from the butternut squash and cauliflower, it’s a flavor powerhouse!!
WHAT ARE THE BEST VEGETABLES FOR ROASTING?
Just about any vegetable! Here are my favorites:
- Root vegetables (potatoes, carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, etc)
- Broccoli, brussels sprouts, zucchini, summer squash, onions, cauliflower, bell peppers, etc.
HOW TO ROAST VEGETABLES IN THE OVEN
- Set your oven temperature fairly high. The high temperature allows for the great color and texture, without drying the vegetables out.
- Toss the vegetables with oil and spices, and use your hands to mix well. Your hands are the best tool here, so you can sort of massage the flavors into the veggies and make sure they’re completely coated.
- Use parchment or foil for easy cleanup. Natural parchment paper is my personal favorite!
- Stir the vegetables around halfway through so they can get crispy on both sides.
This roasted vegetable recipe is low in points… just 2 smart points! Those points are coming from the olive oil and potatoes 🙂
If you’d like to add a touch of extra sweetness, add a couple teaspoons of honey (although that will add to the point value). To reduce the points even further, swap out the potatoes for another zero point vegetable (like onions or broccoli).
The next time you’re looking for a great healthy side dish (like to go alongside prosciutto wrapped honey lemon shrimp or with a bowl of tomato basil soup with pesto), give these roasted vegetables a try!
- Extra large sheet pan – I use this sheet pan all the time (I have 3 of them!), and it holds up SO well and doesn’t warp in the oven!
- Natural parchment paper – unbleached and perfectly nonstick! Plus, the pre-cut sheets mean you don’t have to fight with a roll of paper!
