Best Roasted Veggies

If you have never roasted veggies, let me virtually shake you and yell “What is wrong with you?!”. You have no idea what you’re missing! We eat these veggies at least 3-4 times a week. Sometimes, when I’m super lazy, this is all we’ll eat for dinner because I only want to make one dish. I’ll admit it takes my son (who is 5 years old) a billion years to finish his dinner when I do this, but he’s a slow eater anyway. Other than that, everyone else gobbles it up pretty fast. The baby prefers the sweet potatoes (who wouldn’t) but we’re working on getting her to like the little trees too 🙂

There are no beets or Brussel sprouts in the photo, but trust me, add them. It is SO delicious!

  1. I don’t see a Whole30 tag on this recipe. What disqualifies it from that category?

    • Probably my scattered brain. Ha! I’ve added the Whole30 tag, thanks for catching that 🙂

  2. Where does the garlic go? You just cook and eat it?! I was expecting it to be distributed.. ?

    • Oh yeah, you roast the cloves, whole, and just eat them. So delicious. Garlic isn’t nearly as, um, garlicky, when it’s roasted. You should definitely try it out.

  3. Should the veggies be covered while roasting, it doesn’t specify. I’m assuming they should be uncovered.

    • Yup, they should be uncovered.

  4. Do you need two pans for this many vegetables?

    • Depends on the size of your pan. I have a small and a large jelly roll pan, and I use the large one for this. Everything fits on the one pan.

  5. This way of making veggies is now a staple in our household, thank you!!


  6. So I’m cooking a pork shoulder at the same time, with the oven at 325. Could I roast these at 325, but increase the time?

  7. Are these recipes meant for one person? I see some are used two days ?

    • Most of the recipes on my site are family-sized. There are 5 of us. If it’s a smaller serving, it’s usually listed on the recipe. These roasted veggies definitely make enough for a family and some leftovers.

  8. 5 stars
    This recipe is fantastic! I’ve already made it 3 times now and the sweet potatoes and whole garlic cloves really tie it in. Didn’t have brussel sprouts or beets one of the times and substituted zucchini- still great! Thank you!
