First of all, preheat an oven at 200C/392F.
- Cut vegetables
- Add olive oil, salt to the bowl
- Toss them
- Place them on a tray and bake for 20 minutes at 200C/392F
It's done! It smells so good!
I placed a silicone baking mat on a baking tray. A cooking sheet can be used, but I prefer the silicone baking mat because of its handling. It allows heat better and will last longer in use!
These roasted vegetables are with cauliflower, carrot, and red onion. You can cook any kind of veggie except leafy greens!
Here are some ideas for variations:
- Spring: Asparagas, spring onions, potatoes
- Summer: Zuccini, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes
- Fall: Sweet potatoes, kabocha, carrots, mushrooms
- Winter: Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, green onion
My favorite is always onions. Roasting brings out the sweetness even if you don't like them so much, and their tender taste will make up for it!
Sweet potatoes and pumpkins are the best in the fall. It's perfect not only as a side dish but also as a snack for children.
