Colorful Roasted Sheet-Pan Vegetables
Give your plate a pop of color with these healthy sheet-pan veggies.
Roast the Vegetables in Stages
Give the cubes of butternut squash a 10-minute head start to soften in the oven before adding in the other veggies. The broccoli, peppers and onion are naturally more tender than the butternut squash and cook more quickly. This way, everything ends up finishing at the same time.
Use Two Large Rimmed Baking Sheets
When roasting vegetables, they should be in a single layer with some space around each. This allows air to circulate around them so that they brown and crisp evenly. Overcrowding the vegetables will steam them instead of roasting them. For the best results, use two large rimmed baking sheets for roasting.
Recipes Using Roasted Vegetables
These roasted sheet pan vegetables are delicious on their own or as a side dish. They can also be incorporated into other recipes, such as Roasted Vegetable Lasagna, Baked Eggs with Roasted Vegetables, Polenta Bowls with Roasted Vegetables & Fried Eggs and Roasted Vegetable Pasta.
