What Vegetables Can Be Roasted Together?
I love oven roasted vegetables! Not only is roasted vegetables a simple method of cooking veggies, it can really kick up the flavor in a dish.
When it comes to roasting, there are so many choices:
- I love roasting bell peppers and onions or adding zucchini and yellow squash into the mix.
- Sometimes it’s nice to roast carrots and green beans when you are in the mood for a down to earth home cooked feel.
- Cauliflower and broccoli go well together.
- If you are an artichoke fan, artichokes and celery make for a nice combination. However, for me, I’m a purest when it comes to artichoke. I like my artichoke to stand alone with just a little lemon juice and garlic to enhance the flavor.
Great Roasted Vegetable Combinations:
- Pepper and Onions
- Yellow Squash and Zucchini
- Cauliflower and Broccoli
- Artichoke and Celery
- Carrots and Green Beans
For the Roasted Greek Vegetables I used a combination of squash, tomatoes, peppers, and onions, all seasoned with tasty greek flavors, and roasted to perfection.
What are Some Spices to Put on Roasted Veggies?
When it comes to roasted vegetables there are all kinds of options for jazzing them up with spices. I make my own homemade Greek Spice Blend, and it is my favorite combination to add to my Greek vegetables. But just as there are a lot of great roasted vegetable combinations, there are a lot of great seasonings too, and because roasting vegetables brings out their natural sweetness and flavors, sometimes all you need is a little salt and pepper. It just depends on your mood.
- When I am roasting peppers and onions to add to a burger or sandwich, I like to let the vegetables speak for themselves and just drizzle a little olive oil on them with some salt and pepper.
- However, when I am wanting to satisfy and Italian food craving but want a light snack, I may roast zucchini and tomato with some traditional Italian spices like oregano, garlic, and thyme, or rosemary and garlic. That is what I did with this Italian Chicken Sheet Pan Meal.
- If I’m just roasting some carrots, sometimes a little cinnamon and brown sugar are a nice addition, adding an element of cozy sweetness to my carrots.
- For artichoke, as mentioned before, I’m pretty simple. I just add some lemon juice and garlic.
- For a Greek roasted vegetable platter, a combo of Greek spices is a must!
There is really a lot you can do with vegetables and spices. What are your favorite flavor combos? Add those to vegetables and roast.
A Few Classic Spice Options for Roasted Vegetables:
- Salt and Pepper (simple enhancement of flavor)
- Rosemary and Garlic or Oregano, Garlic and Thyme (Italian flare)
- Garlic and Salt (Simple flavoring)
- Mint and Oregano (Greek style)
How Long Does it Take to Roast Vegetables?
How to roast vegetables isn’t a difficult process. However, how long it takes to roast vegetables does not have one simple answer.
Roasting time simply depends on the vegetable. Certain veggies take longer to roast than others. Some vegetables like zucchini can take as little as ten minutes to roast and then you have a vegetable like the artichoke the can take as long as about an hour to get the job done.
The amount of time it takes just depends on the vegetable, as well as how it is cut. Typically vegetables can be roasted in 20-30 minutes or less.
The keys to roasting vegetables are:
- Cut all the vegetables you roast to relatively the same size, if they are the same consistency.
- If you are roasting heartier vegetables like carrots or potatoes with more delicate vegetables like green beans, you will need to cut the heartier ones smaller so they can finish cooking in the time allotted to cook the more delicate foods.
- Space. If you want a good roasted vegetable, do not overcrowd your pan. You are better off roasting in two batches, then having an overly full pan.
What Temperature Do You Roast Vegetables in the Oven?
In order to actually roast your vegetables, you need to cook vegetables in the oven at a high temperature. 425 degrees seems to be the sweet spot for most roasted vegetables.
If you want to really see success, a little oil, some seasoning, and a pre-heated oven.
