Simple Roasted Vegetables

Cook Once, Eat Twice!

I make roasted vegetables all year round and I ALWAYS cook extra! I use them for days after, adding them to a pan with eggs for breakfast, or tossing them into a salad for lunch. Cook once, eat two (or three) times is my motto!

Roasting vegetables is a simple skill that you will use all your life. Simply cut vegetables in a uniform size, drizzle with olive oil, and season with sea salt and pepper, then toss. Place in upper third of a hot oven  and cook until the veggies have golden edges! Root veggies, like carrots, sweet and white potatoes, beets, butternut squash etc cook at about the same rate and can all be loaded on the cookie sheet at the same time. There are some vegetables that roast very quickly, like asparagus or corn. I toss those in the last ten minutes of cooking.

You can leave the vegetables simple: drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and pepper, or make them a little fancy by adding herbs like thyme or rosemary! No one will argue about eating their vegetables again! Gorgeous, healthy, easy…an Organic Kitchen favorite!


The Recipe: Simple Roasted Vegetables

Simple Roasted Vegetables




Yield 6 servings

So easy you will make them all the time!


  • You can use any root veggie you like or a combination of many. Carrots, beets, potatoes, shallots, butternut squash, even brussels sprouts etc...
  • In this variation we are using:
  • 10 rose or white new potatoes (quartered)
  • 8 carrots carrots (peeled and cut into 3" pieces)
  • 6 shallots (peeled and cut in half).


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place rack in upper third of oven. Place parchment paper on a rimmed cookie sheet.
  2. Prepare veggies and place them on pan.
  3. Drizzle veggies with olive oil (enough that all veggies are glistening but not drenched) and toss. Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Toss. (add herbs if desired)
  4. Bake to your liking (45-55 minutes). I like to roast vegetables till the edges are crispy and slightly browned.


  1. If you would like to add asparagus, zucchini or corn on the cob, add them to the pan ten minutes before root veggies are done.
  2. For rosemary vegetables, chop fresh rosemary and sprinkle over vegetables before cooking.

  1. My husband and I are obsessed with these roasted veggies! I make them as my side dish quite often! So yummy!!!

  2. I do almost the exact same thing very often. I toss the veggies in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. After about 30 minutes in the oven I remove and toss them again with just a tad more EVOO and balsamic vinegar and return them to the oven to finish. I love the crispy edges, so a few minutes under to broiler does the trick!
