Perfect Roasted Vegetables

How to make perfect oven roasted vegetables. Roasting any variety of vegetables is quick, easy, and delicious with this simple formula.

*This recipe is for 1 pound of roasted vegetables, which is enough for 4 if you're serving these as a vegetable side dish. I like to make 3 or 4 pounds at a time, ensuring that there are plenty of leftover roasted vegetables on hand to munch on throughout the rest of the week.


  • 1 pound of vegetables, any kind or combination you like
  • 1 tsp minced fresh garlic (optional)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 fresh lemon (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prep vegetables: wash, peel, if necessary, and chop into uniformly sized pieces.
  3. Dump all the vegetables into a large bowl and toss with the garlic and olive oil.
  4. Arrange the vegetables on the tray, separating varieties that require a longer roasting time from those that require a shorter roasting time. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Roast for 15-40 minutes, depending on the type of vegetables you are roasting (see roasting time guide above).
  6. Remove from the oven and squeeze a bit of fresh lemon juice over the vegetables. Toss and serve.
