Slide a tray into the oven on Sunday, and eat roasted vegetables with grains, pastas, and salads (or as a side with anything) all week. Simply cut them so they cook uniformly: Denser vegetables, like potatoes and carrots, should be a little smaller than ones with more water, like zucchini. Slice tomatoes in half and roast them open-side-up to retain their juices.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss vegetables with enough oil to evenly coat in a thin film; season with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on one or more rimmed baking sheets, without crowding.

  • Roast, stirring vegetables once (and rotating sheets' rack positions, if using two or more sheets) halfway through, until tender and golden brown in places, 40 to 50 minutes. Serve, or let cool completely and refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week. Vegetables can be reheated in the microwave or in a 350-degree oven until warmed through.

Cook's Notes

Whether you're making one kind or a combination, be sure to spread them in a single layer and not crowd them, to prevent steaming.

Adjust the quantity of the ingredients depending on what you have, the flavors you like, and the number you're serving.
