Making Oven Roasted Veggies on a sheet pan is such a good way to get the perfect crisp and tender vegetables. We’ve already made Roasted Green Beans and Roasted Broccoli in the same style, but for this healthy side dish, you get a whole medley of vegetables instead of just one.

The colorful veggies are tossed in olive oil, butter, salt, pepper, garlic, and a little parsley for delicious flavor. The seasonings help make the delicious combination of veggies appealing even to picky eaters. But there isn’t so much garlic or spice that it overwhelms the natural flavors of the Oven Roasted Vegetables.

Enjoy potatoes, zucchini, squash, carrots, bell pepper, onion, and broccoli all cooked into one easy recipe. All the different kinds of healthy and delicious vegetables are roasted together on the same pan and ready in the same cooking time. Just remember to stir them partway through the roasting time. That way you can make sure it’s evenly cooked without softer or crispier pieces. Simple as that you’ll be enjoying the dish in minutes perfect to go with an easy dinner.

How to Make Roasted Vegetables

  • Prep time: To start your Oven Roasted Veggies recipe, preheat the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Then slice all the vegetables into bite-size pieces. If you want to make the cooking sheets easier to clean, you can line each sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. If you have a large rimmed baking sheet, you’ll probably only need one, but if the baking sheets are smaller, you’ll want two.
  • Season: Add the sliced potatoes, zucchini, squash, carrots, bell pepper, red onion, and broccoli florets to a large mixing bowl. Next, pour the olive oil and melted butter over the top. Then season with salt, pepper, and minced garlic. Mix the ingredients until the veggies are well coated.
  • Cook time: Place the vegetables on the prepared baking sheet. You want to make sure there is plenty of space for them to all lay flat in a single layer. Put the dish in the hot oven, and roast the vegetables for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, open the oven and use a metal spatula to stir and flip the vegetables. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until the oven Roasted Veggies are fork-tender.
  • Serve: Take the dish from the oven, and top the Oven Roasted Vegetables off with extra olive oil and parsley before serving
