- one medium sweet potato (effectively rinsed, skin on, sliced into one/four-inch rounds)

- 1 small head cauliflower (cut into massive bite-sizes pieces)
- 1 little head broccoli (reduce into huge bite-sizes pieces)
- Any other seasonal greens you have on hand (properly rinsed, peeling optional, sliced in bite-dimension pieces)
- 1-2 Tbsp neutral oil (this kind of as avocado or coconut // or consider our Oil-Totally free Approach! )

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and prepare 1-2 large baking sheets (depending on how numerous vegetables you happen to be roasting) with parchment paper or a non-stick sheet.
Adhere to the suggestions above to put together veggies for roasting by rinsing as necessary, peeling as desired, and slicing/piecing into bite-dimension pieces. Peeling the garlic is optional – it can be roasted peeled OR with the skin on.
Include veggies to the same baking pans according to their essential cook time. Root veggies (beets, carrots, potatoes, etc.) generally tend to take longer (up to forty minutes), so I like to group them together so they finish baking at the identical time.
Cruciferous greens (like cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage), as properly as garlic and onion will not tend to call for as time to cook (
25 minutes) so we suggest grouping them together on a separate pan so they finish baking at the very same time.
When on the pan, drizzle with a minor oil to coat (see this technique for oil-cost-free!), a pinch of salt, and sought after seasonings of selection. We desire a hefty coating of curry powder. NOTE: Nonetheless, based on how you intend to use the veggies, you could choose not to season. For instance, if you strategy to freeze your roasted carrots or sweet potatoes and then add them to smoothies, possibly just include a little salt and omit any additional seasoning.
Rub the oil and seasonings of decision into the veggies and organize into even layers so there isn’t a lot or any overlap. Then bake until golden brown and tender (anywhere from 20-30 for cruciferous veggies, onions, and garlic, and anywhere from 25-40 for root veggies).
Take away from oven and get pleasure from right away on things like salads, bowls, in pasta salads and far more! See the video under for inspiration. I like to freeze my roasted (or even steamed) carrots and sweet potatoes to add to smoothies during the week. My favorite way to use beets is blended into hummus. And roasted broccoli and cauliflower are perfect for grain bowls, pasta salads, and more.
Take pleasure in when fresh, or keep leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to four-5 days. Reheat in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat, or in a 375 degree F (190 C) oven right up until sizzling.
You can also freeze up to 1 month, but it’s typically best to include these frozen roasted veggies to issues like smoothies, stews, and vegetable broth in which their texture will be masked.
*Nutrition details is a rough estimate for 8 (1-cup) servings of greens with 1 Tbsp oil and no salt or seasonings // make adjustments to nutrition details as needed when altering volume of elements).
