Roasting is a great way to prep your vegetables ahead of time for easy meals because it does not take a whole lot of active time and they store well in containers in the fridge. Roasting also enhances flavor, improves texture, and is a great way to bring new life to older vegetables that you might otherwise throw out.

For example, I roasted cherry tomatoes that were a bit shriveled and soft to preserve their bright flavor, color, and modify the texture.

Roasting is a great way to prep your vegetables ahead of time for easy meals because it doesn’t take a whole lot of active time and they store well in containers in the fridge.

You can roast pretty much any vegetable, but here’s some ideas of what works best:

  • roots: carrots, parsnips, turnips, sweet potatoes, beets
  • greens & brassicas: cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale
  • alliums: onions, garlic, leeks
  • squashes of all kinds
  • you can also roast fruits like peaches, nectarines, berries, and even apples!

Wash and peel vegetables as needed.

Chop into bite sized or manageable pieces. Combine on a baking sheet or roasting pan with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other seasonings.

Roast on high heat, 425℉ or so, until soft enough to pierce with a fork.

Remove from oven, let cool, and store in closed containers in the fridge until use.

We’re going to roast broccoli, brussels sprouts, carrots, and onions to have on top of a mixed green salad. Tomatoes and berries will provide a pop of color, quinoa will add some texture and added nutrients, and we’ll mix up a vinaigrette dressing to go with it.[/vc_column_text][/mpc_tab][mpc_tab title=”Basic Vinaigrette” tab_id=”1538878127-2-79″][vc_column_text]
