Roasting vegetables is one of my favorite ways to cook vegetables. When you roast them, it adds richness and delicious flavor.  Vegetables will be crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

 

Best Vegetables for Roasting

Roasted root vegetables are delicious, however, almost any vegetable can be roasted in the oven.

  • Potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, etc.
  • Broccoli, cauliflower, corn on the cob, brussels sprouts, zucchini, yellow squash, spaghetti squash, etc.
  • Bell peppers, onions, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, etc.
