Even amateur cooks can’t mess this up. You can roast at 350 for more time or 425 for less time. Use almost any vegetable, like red potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, peppers, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, zucchini, green beans, onions, fennel, parsnip, turnip, etc.. The more colors, the greater variety of anti-aging benefits. - Jenny Jones

Roasted Vegetables


  • Vegetables of your choice
  • 2-3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Cut vegetables into large bite-size pieces.
  3. Place on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Pour olive oil over vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine well with your hands.

Note: Don’t overcrowd the pan. If you add too many vegetables they will steam and not roast with some nice charred edges.

    Hi Jenny,

    I hear from friends that heating up olive oil too hot is not good for you? Any thoughts on that?

    I have just started cooking so trying to learn. Thanks, Mike

      It’s probably not a good idea to heat it to the smoking point but for sauteing over medium-high heat, I don’t have any issues with that. There is a lot of differing research online about this so you might want to do some checking for yourself. But for my kind of home cooking, I always use olive oil on the stove.

    I can’t believe how simple and yummy this is! My family is eating tons of veggies that we usually don’t eat. We have this a few times a week and just mix up the veggies for variety. Thanks!
