Having roasted vegetables in the fridge is a lifesaver, especially during busy months where you have a million other activities to do. The holiday season involves gift buying, traveling, planning, hosting, and cooking many different dishes.
This recipe for roasted vegetables (and how I made them) is so good that I’m pretty sure it will alleviate a lot of your stress by reducing your time in the kitchen.
Why are roasted vegetables so great
Roasted vegetables are the perfect side dish for any meal. You can serve them as a side in your Thanksgiving meal, or serve them on a beautiful platter on Christmas Eve or at Christmas dinner.
Roasted vegetables are also great to have in the fridge and to reheat with rice and lentils and serve as a buddha bowl or a warm salad. I also love to make roasted vegetable sandwiches or even quesadillas. Roasted vegetables are so versatile.
Best vegetables to roast
All vegetables are so easy to roast, and all taste amazing. You can roast butternut squash, kabocha squash, green beans, cabbage, … I mean, the possibilities are endless.

how to roast your vegetables
- Spice Mix. First I like to make a spice mix. In a bowl or using a mortar and pestle, mix thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, red chili flakes, salt, pepper, and paprika.
- Vegetables. Then I cut my vegetables into bite-size pieces and spread them out on a baking sheet. As I told you before, my favorite vegetables to roast are cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and potatoes.
- Season. I drizzle them with olive oil and season with the spice mix. Mix with your hands and make sure every piece is covered with olive oil and well seasoned.

Tips and tricks for perfect roasted vegetables
- Do not overcrowd the sheet pan: vegetables like to have room to roast to perfection.
- Be generous with the olive oil, so that you make sure every piece is well covered.
- Season properly.
- Use quarter-size sheet pans or divide your vegetables into sections. The way that I divide them is by size, cooking times, and type of vegetable.
- Resist the urge to combine vegetables on a single tray when roasting, because they all have different cooking times.
- It is best that when your vegetables are done you serve them on a platter. DO NOT serve them in a bowl, because this will make them soggy.
Best way to serve the vegetables
- On platter, drizzled with red bell pepper sauce as a side dish on your Thanksgiving meal.
- Over pasta, quinoa or rice with a tablespoon or two of the bell pepper sauce. You can serve this dish with simple salad, and you have the perfect meal.
- In a sandwich with some Dijon mustard on one side, and mayo on the other, the vegetable of you choice ( I love to use roasted broccoli here), a drizzle of red bell pepper sauce and a slice of cheese that melts.
