I hope you’re as crazy about these balsamic roasted vegetables as I am!
There are two parts to today’s recipe: the vegetables and the seasonings.
Let’s start with the veggies!
What are the best vegetables to roast in the oven?
You can literally roasted any veggie you like, but for today’s balsamic roasted vegetables, I chose to use:
- Sweet potato – I like using one starchy vegetable, usually a potato of some sort, because it really bulks up the recipe
- Asparagus – ya gotta have something green and since it’s spring/summer time, asparagus is my favorite! You could also use broccoli, green beans, or brussels sprouts
- Red bell pepper – I <3 bell peppers, I chose red today, because it looks gorgeous with all the other colors! Feel free to use YOUR favorite pepper
- Red onion – you can’t have roasted vegetables with onion, I absolutely love the sweetness it brings to this recipe
Veggies – check!
Now let’s talk seasonings:
- Olive oil
- Balsamic vinegar
- Dijon mustard
- Garlic pwoder
- Dried basil – I LOVE using dried basil to keep these balsamic roasted vegetables nice and summery
Basically, you’ll whisk together the seasonings, pour ’em over the veggies and you’re done! If you can, let them marinate in the fridge while you’re at work. If you’re in a rush, they’ll still be delicious if cooked immediately!
Next up, the roastin’!
What temperature is best for roasting vegetables?
I always roasted my vegetables at 425 degrees F. I feel like it’s the perfect temperature, because they vegetables roast relatively quickly, but still get that perfect golden color!
As you can see, these balsamic roasted vegetables are quick, easy, healthy, and delicious!
Perfect enjoyed as a side dish to your favorite dinner or even as a super light vegetarian lunch or dinner.
Either way, this recipe is a GREAT way to pack in those veggies!
