Roasting Vegetables 101 is a simple way to learn how to roast any vegetables you love perfectly.


Our tips on roasting vegetables with giving you step-by-step instructions plus suggestions on how to flavor them cut them, and make a perfect side dish every time.


Once in a while, I just love eating roasted vegetables as a whole meal at lunchtime.


These roasted vegetables are easy to prepare, and even leftovers are perfect to use in scrambled eggs or in a baked quiche.


The best part about roasted vegetables is you can make any kind of vegetables they like and seasoning flavors you and your family like.


During the summer we just love all fresh farmers' market produce, we suggest never using mushy canned styled vegetables that are full of salt and frozen cook faster and shouldn't be on the same tray as fresh so they all cook uniformly.


Scroll down to our tips, suggestions, and 101 instructions in the printable recipe card below.









Welcome to Roasting Vegetables 101

  1. First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees
  2. Use fresh vegetables
  3. Don't crowd the vegetables place them on an oil sprayed parchment paper-lined deep baking sheet
  4. Use around 2 tablespoons of olive oil per pound tossing the vegetables into it before adding to the baking sheet
  5. Cut the vegetables to a uniform shape and use the same likeness of vegetables (root vs squash etc.)

The Simple Tips To Roasting Vegetables

  1. When picking vegetables to roast try and roast the ones that take similar times to cook IE: carrots, parsnips, beets, and potatoes take the longest to roast, around an hour
  2. Cut them all the same size
  3. Squash takes less time to roast so you would want to try a variety of them with fewer root vegetables on the baking sheet
  4. Cutting and slicing them all of the same thickness is key to getting them to roast uniformly
  5. Roast vegetables on a parchment-lined baking sheet and make sure they're not piled on top of each other
  6. Lastly, you can precook your root vegetables and par-cook them by boiling or the microwave for just a few minutes to cut their time down then add whatever takes less time to the sheet and eliminate the guesswork
