This roasted vegetable recipe is fundamental in my meal planning Mondays. I make this huge tray of potatoes, Brussel sprouts, eggplant, baby carrots, onion and garlic and it only takes 10 minutes prep time! They are absolutely fantastic roasted vegetables! I serve these vegetables as a side dish with chicken, in a soup or even eat a big bowl for breakfast. It’s great to have these on hand over the next three days and not have to worry about making a side dish.

HOW TO MAKE FANTASTIC ROASTED VEGETABLES
You will Need:
- red potatoes, large or baby potatoes (actually, any potato will work, even sweet potato)
- Brussel sprouts
- eggplant, I use Chinese eggplant
- avocado or olive oil
- parchment paper
- baking sheet, I use a Baker’s half sheet (I love these! I have two!)
- large mixing bowl
The first thing you want to do is pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and get your baking sheet ready. I like to use a Baker’s half sheet because it fills my whole oven. While I roast my vegetables, I use my top rack to make Rosemary Roasted Chicken (recipe coming soon) and yams. I use another half sheet covered with a baking rack. It’s very practical and time saving, see below!
This is a great way to prep food for the week if you are on Whole30 or don’t have a lot of time to cook. I use chicken to make tacos, salad or soups and yams for a delicious puree with cinnamon.
Next, you will add all your prepped veggies to a large mixing bowl and toss in the oil and sprinkle salt all over. The best way to mix this is with your hands so that you make sure all the salt is spread out evenly. Plus, olive oil is SO good for your skin! It’s a great treatment!
Then, spread all the vegetables on your baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes or until potatoes are cooked through. I like to store my vegetables in a Foodsaver container so they stay fresh longer. I use the 10 cup Foodsaver container so my vegetables don’t get smashed.
So this is what my Meal Planning Monday’s look like! If you are interested in more meal planning, meal prep or batch cooking, please let me know and I will include more recipes!
