Herb & Garlic Roasted Vegetables
I love roasting veggies because it makes them so delicious. When I made this recipe, I used parsnips, brussels sprouts, potatoes, butternut squash, and carrots. But you do you! Feel free to swap out or skip any of the veggies you aren’t feeling.
This recipe is so simple, yet so dang tasty. Plus, it’s packed with nutrition, so you really can’t go wrong!
Here are some of my favorite veggies to roast:
- sweet potatoes
- baby/red potatoes
- brussels sprouts
- bell peppers
- butternut squash (especially in the fall!)
Feel free to add in some red onion or shallots for even more flavor!
Other than the veggies, all you need is some olive oil and spices for this recipe to come together (rosemary, garlic powder, and black pepper).
How to Roast Vegetables on a Sheet Pan
Start by preheating your oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare your raw veggies by chopping them up and placing them into a large bowl. (Root vegetables like sweet potatoes should be cut up into small chunks so they’ll cook faster).
In the bowl, drizzle the veggies with olive oil – enough to coat, but not drown. Add a few shakes of garlic powder, desired amount of rosemary (I like a lot!), and some cracked pepper. Mix well until the seasoning is well spread among the veggies.
Next, place the veggies on a baking tray. Make sure they’re spread out in a mostly single layer.
Then, pop them in the oven (in the middle rack) for about 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes, check if they’re done: they should be semi-soft and browned around the edges. Cook for longer if necessary.
Keep in mind, the length of roasting time depends on the type of veggies you use. Softer veggies (like tomatoes, asparagus, and won’t need as much time – usually around 15-25 minutes. Whereas harder/root vegetables like squash and potatoes will usually need longer, like 25-40 minutes. This also depends on how thin/small you cut them.
I love how crispy and caramelized these veggies turn out! Feel free to stir them halfway through roasting so they cook more evenly. And experiment with different herbs: I’m sure sage and thyme would go really well here, too!
