Roasting vegetables requires little preparation outside of washing and chopping the veggies into bite-size pieces. Add an oil, salt, and pepper, then bake until golden brown and tender.

This recipe uses 3 vegetables: sweet potato, brussels sprouts, and red onion. Other fall vegetable options that would also work great for this recipe include carrots, beets, white or purple potatoes.

A mixture of avocado oil and maple syrup is the secret sauce in this recipe and really elevates the flavor profile of the vegetables.

Kitchen Tools / Items You Need to Prepare This Dish:

  • Cutting board
  • Sharp knife
  • Large bowl
  • Small bowl + small whisk or fork for mixing
  • 2 large baking sheets
  • Parchment paper

Tips For Oven Roasted Vegetables:

  • Avoid over crowding your vegetables on the baking sheet. You want to give the vegetables space when roasting as this allows them to brown nicely. If you overcrowd the baking sheet then the vegetables will steam instead of caramelizing. I recommend using 2 large baking sheets or 1 large and 2 small baking sheets for the amount of vegetables used in this recipe.
  • Rotate the baking sheet in the oven and/or stir those veggies while roasting. You want rotate your baking sheets about halfway through your roasting time which helps the vegetable brown evenly in the oven. I also suggest stirring the vegetables once while roasting.
