Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven Roasted Vegetables medley is a colorful complement to beef, chicken, pork, or fish. The inspiration for this recipe came from the Claim Jumper Restaurant. I ordered their roasted vegetables and loved them so much, I came up with my own version at home. All of my favorite vegetables are included in this dish. And the best part is, you can add or subtract vegetables to your taste. This is my very favorite way to eat vegetables, since I hate mushy or soggy veggies. Roasting makes vegetables crisp yet tender, slightly caramelized, and extremely flavorful. These Roasted Vegetables will make a believer out of even the biggest veggie skeptics!

Tips for Perfect Oven Roasted Vegetables

  • There are a few types of veggies that don’t roast super well, in my opinion, like broccoli and green beans. You can roast them, and they taste great, but they don’t turn out as colorful as if you just blanch them in some boiling water. But most vegetables roast beautifully. I’ve included my favorites in this recipe, but you could also try roasting butternut squash, asparagus, eggplant, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.
  • Roasting vegetables at a high heat causes them to caramelize on the outside without overcooking them on the inside. An oven temperature of 450 is just right. Make sure to keep an eye on them in the oven. They are perfect when they are starting to brown a little on the edges.
  • Another tip for perfectly roasted vegetables, is to not overload the pan. They cook more evenly when they are spaced out a bit. Give those gorgeous veggies room to do their thing!
  • Seasoning the vegetables really brings out the flavor. I am a big fan of rosemary and the woodsy, pine flavor it brings out in the food. Add the tablespoon it calls for in the recipe, but make sure that every vegetable is covered, adding more if necessary.
  •  In addition to rosemary, oregano, thyme, parsley, salt, and pepper are delicious on vegetables.
  • Oven Roasted Vegetables are best served straight out of the oven. They tend to wilt and get soggy if made ahead of time and reheated. It’s worth it to take the extra few minutes just before dinner to roast fresh vegetables. So good!

    It was great! I brought it to a potluck get together and everybody loved it. The rosemary adds a lot. Be sure to use fresh.. rosemary.

  2. I have found that roasting broccoli or brussels sprouts (both of which I love) overpowers the other vegetables. Roasting them also brings out a strong cabbage family smell that isn’t nice. I recommend leaving the cabbage family for a different cooking method.

  3. Does your vegetable medley have a slightly sweet taste to it? If so its great. I was hospitalized a few months ago and they had this on the menus, and decided to try it, it was wonderful!!!

  4. Thankfully my husband, children & grandchildren love roasted vegetables. I’m always looking for new ways to change them up, thanks for giving me another way to do that. I thought I’d offer another suggestion. Use a grill pan, basket with the holes or disposable pan with or without holes & add some sun dried tomato salad dressing. I also marinate chicken breast in a bag at least 2-3hrs with the same dressing then grill both. The dressing is amazing on the veggies & the chicken. If you don’t want juice dripping on your grill don’t put the holes in the pan. I’ve done it both ways & it’s so good. Just use less dressing if using a pan without holes. Remove the veggies when they’re as done as you like (we like ours still lil crunchy). Remove the chicken when it’s done & juice runs clears. Thanks again for a new idea. I’m going to try yours in the oven & on the grill.

    1. Add any vegetable you have on hand. Ive used all diiferent veggies, and they are always delicious!!!

    I had a very similar recipe to this in a cafeteria style restaurant once, and LOVED it– just the right amount of tenderness and crispness– fresh-tasting and LIGHT! I can’t wait to try this version, what with the spices and other flavors used!!

    1. Yes, it can…but be warned that the vegetables become soft when saved and reheated. They really are best right out of the oven. Thank you for asking!

  6. Can this be placed in a disposable pan and roasted on the grill (I need a very large amount of veggies as a side)?

    1. To roast the vegetables on the grill, you will either want to use a grill basket (which probably wouldn’t be big enough if you need a large amount) or foil packets. You can make several foil packets to grill at once. Use heavy duty aluminum foil or 2 layers of regular foil. Tear off a large piece of foil. Use a pastry brush to oil the foil well and then place vegetables in the middle of the foil. Securely fold and seal the packet edges. For the vegetables in this recipe, you will want to grill on medium to medium-high for 10-12 minutes on each side. Every grill is different so you will want to check the vegetables after you turn them so you can adjust the cooking time if necessary. I hope this helps! Good luck!

    This was good. I didn’t have any problem with the temperature. I personally wasn’t the most enthusiastic fan because Im not very keen on zuchini or summer squash, but I thought it was good, so…

  8. 450 is way to hot. Turned my down to 375. But I think I will just do 350 next time. I don’t like my food incinerated!

      I also think 450 is too hot for veggies. I made them at 400 and took them out in 20 minutes. They were much more brown than the picture here. Great recipe. Definitely re-making these 🙂

  9. Thanks for sharing. About how much does this make? I need to make a half tray for a party and not sure if I should triple this or what. Thanks!

  10. I love roasted broccoli!! It’s great, but it wouldn’t be good in this recipe because it cooks much faster than these. Thanks for the idea here. Looks great!
