Roasted Veggies make a great addition to any bowl, a side to a meal or just a light meal by themselves! There is more to roasting than just tossing in oil, salt and pepper. Roasted vegetables can turn out bland, overly roasted with chewy edges, under roasted, can get crinkly/dry and not enjoyable. 

This is how I roast veggies like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. I use a stoneware baking dish. This allows for even heat distribution and less charring chewyness. Cover the dish for some portion of the bake time. This reduces the moisture loss during baking which is especially helpful when using less oil or no oil. Moisture loss can dry out the veggies making them feel dry and chewy. Fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme, minced garlic and freshly ground black pepper, large pepper flakes preferably, and a good amount adds just the perfect flavor! Serve with just some lemon juice + pepper or gravy or my garlic sauce

Recipe Notes

Tips: Use a stoneware dish which can accommodate the veggies in one layer without too much overlapping. 

Chop the veggies so that they are not overly large or overly small/thin compared to the other vegetables. 

Use your hands to rub in the oil on the veggies for even coating 

Use parchment or another baking sheet that almost fits the baking dish to cover.

Also see first paragraph of the post for tips and the explanation.

 

Oil-free: Use aquafaba(chickpea water) or broth instead of oil.

 

Variation: Add a cup of cooked chickpeas with the veggies to the dish for added protein.
