Delicious Roasted Vegetables
I love roasted veggies! What’s awesome is the combinations and possibilities are endless because there are so many yummy vegetables to choose from. I chose this combination because they were all from my garden but I often do sweet potatoes, red potatoes, onions, asparagus, and Adelle’s Chicken Apple Sausage from Costco (if you want to add meat). You could add green beans, peppers, carrots, zucchini, summer squash, etc. Like I said the possibilities are endless and you can come up with whatever combination of vegetables you like. This is one of the easiest recipes you’ll ever make and you’ll thank me over and over for it. It’s the perfect side for any meal and it’s super healthy which I love, sharing it even makes it even more enjoyable.
- Cube, quarter or leave whole (depending on size) any vegetables you like (examples are: potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, peppers, asparagus, snap peas, green beans, squash, zucchini, put together a combination you like).
- 2 Tablespoons of Olive or Avocado oil
- 1/2-1 Teaspoon of course ground pepper
- 1/2-1 Teaspoon Himalayan pink salt (I buy mine at Costco) give or take depending on how many vegetables you are roasting you can also just use regular salt.
- 1/4 Teaspoon of granulated garlic or garlic powder or 3-4 garlic cloves
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Put all the vegetables in a casserole dish. Drizzle the oil on the vegetables and add the salt, pepper, and garlic. Toss with your fingers or a fork until the vegetables are evenly coated.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how soft you like your vegetables. (cooking time will also vary depending on how many vegetables you are roasting).
- *If you want to make this a whole meal you can add a meat such as the chicken apple sausage suggested in the post, I buy mine at Costco and they have a variety of chicken sausage to choose from. I cut mine into circles and throw it in with the veggies before they are cooked. Stew meat would also be a delicious addition, I would cook the stew meat prior to throwing it in with the vegetables.

We love roasted veggies like this at our house, too. I have never heard of that pink salt before that you mentioned- I need to add it to my Costco list, I guess. 🙂 Also, I am jealous ….your garden seems to be doing awesome! That is GREAT. One last thing- did you put a sheet of parchment paper under the veggies or what is that? I love all your posts. Keep them coming!

Lindsay, I have a post I will do about the salt soon and i’ll show a picture, I love it it’s super flavorful and there are benefits to using Himalayan salt. My garden is doing really well this year and we are loving it. Yes that is parchment paper it is the next best thing since the washing machine:) it makes cleaning up a pan so easy. I’ll do a post on those soon too. They are already pre-cut to fit a cookie sheet and they are amazing.
