Rainbow Roasted Veggie Tray

On any given night in our house, we’re eating some permutation of a roasted veggie tray. Whether it’s roasted baby potatoes with rosemary, or our family favourite of just broccoli, salt, pepper and olive oil – there’s almost always a tray of veggies roasting away in our oven.

One of my favourite veggie tray concoctions is this simple rainbow coloured tray. I usually do this when I need to clean out the fridge of veggies that are just about to go bad. I’ll bring out half a head of broccoli, a quarter of a red bell pepper that’s been forgotten, the remains of a red onion, a couple carrots, and whatever else I’ve got in the fridge.

This recipe is incredibly forgiving. Don’t have a bell pepper? Use a zucchini. Don’t have carrots? Use parsnips. Don’t have brussels sprouts? Use broccoli. You get the idea.

The only note I’ll make here is that yams, potatoes and beets do take a bit longer to cook. If I’m going to include them on my veggie tray I’ll often put them in the oven for 10-15 minutes first and add the rest of the veggies for the final 30 minutes.

So use this recipe next time you’ve got a bunch of veggies about to turn, or when you’re looking for a fresh way to boost your veggie intake.
