Making roasted vegetables is so easy, but you’ll need just a few kitchen items to get you started (affiliate links):
- a sturdy cutting board
- a sharp chef’s knife
- measuring spoons and cups
- a mixing bowl
- a sheet pan for roasting
To make this recipe you’ll need:
- red onion
- yellow bell pepper
- red bell pepper
- olive oil
- garlic powder
Time needed: 25 minutes
Follow these steps for the BEST oven roasted vegetables!
- Chop the veggies in the correct size.
When using multiple kinds of veggies in the same dish, we recommend chopping them strategically so they cook evenly. This means for harder vegetables (like carrots), we slice them more thinly. For softer vegetables (like bell peppers), we chop them in larger pieces. This way the vegetables become tender all at the same time and you avoid over-cooking some while under-cooking others.
- Toss them in the oil and seasonings first.
Use a mixing bowl for this step and toss all the vegetables in the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
- Roast in a single layer.
Overcrowding the sheet pan with veggies means they’ll steam instead of roast. Roast in a single layer to promote caramelization.
How to roast vegetables
Roast vegetables in the oven in a single layer. This helps them roast instead of steaming, and allows for perfectly caramelized veggies.
How long to roast vegetables
It takes about 12 minutes to roast vegetables in the air fryer and about 15-20 minutes to roast vegetables in the oven.
Can you roast frozen vegetables?
Yes! Simply add about 4-6 minutes of additional cooking time.
Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Yes, although we recommend enjoying these veggies immediately after roasting for best results.
How can I reheat leftover Roasted Vegetables?
To reheat, simply add the veggies to a sheet pan and reheat in the oven until heated through. They can also be reheated in the microwave until hot.

- Add all the chopped veggies to a large bowl.
- Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and toss very well.
- Add the veggies to the large sheet pan. Avoid overcrowding them and place them in a single layer.
