Healthy & Easy Oven Baked Vegetables

Updated on September 7, 2014

Oven Roasted Goodness!

I would like to share a very easy recipe for roasted vegetables. I have been making adaptations of this 9X13 vegetable casserole for 15+ years, and I want to give you a nice base to start off with.

You can adapt this recipe to suit your own tastes; however I love it as is! The key concept here is that you can roast a variety of veggies in the oven and season with salt, pepper and a little olive oil. That is all you really need, but of course creativity with any recipe is always fun and allows for versatility.

Please be advised that this recipe is GLUTEN FREE and VEGAN and won't clog your arteries!

This recipe is very easy to change up depending on what you have on hand or what is on sale at the store! For example, sometimes I use green bell peppers or substitute an additional zucchini for the yellow squash. You can't go wrong with the fresh taste of oven roasted vegetables!

      Visually beautiful lens! Wonderful recipe. And I'd puree the leftovers for soup stock.

      I love roasting a mixture of vegetables like this. Onions are a must - preferably red ones. I put it down to the Maillard reaction. I had to look that up too.

      I'd never thought of roasting asparagus before. We like pumpkin or sweet potato in the mix. Sometimes I add a dessertspoon of wholegrain mustard which gives a great flavor.

      I love roasted veggies. Sometimes I sprinkle a package of Lipton onion soup mix on the veggies before baking; it caramelizes with the olive oil.

      This sounds unbelievably healthy, although my stomach whimpers. I suppose I ought to eat vegetables more than I do.
