roasted zucchini and carrots

You’ve seen this pork chop before! Find the recipe for it here.

 
This recipe isn’t really a recipe but more of a new cooking method – roasting. I wasn’t completely unfamiliar with the idea of roasting food, but I just didn’t know how to do it myself. Thanks to this recipe now I do. It’s a pretty simple concept actually and produces great results.

Russell and I decided that this is now our favorite way to eat carrots. Sadly, I have tried roasting zucchini twice since I discovered this recipe, but both times it turned out bland and soggy. If anyone has any helpful hints on how to season zucchini to keep it from being bland, I’d love to hear them.

Also, this recipe isn’t restricted to just zucchini and carrots – try other veggies like bell peppers, cauliflower, or even green beans, or try non-veggies like sweet potatoes.

Roasted Zucchini and Carrots
From the Kitchen of: Voracious Vander

Prep Time: 30 mins
Servings: however many you want to serve
Difficulty: Easy

{Ingredients}
whole zucchini
whole carrots
olive oil
seasoning(s) of choice

{Instructions}

Preheat oven to 425° F/ 220° C. Line a baking tray with parchment/baking paper and a light layer of olive oil. Set aside.

Cut zucchini and carrots into 3 inch/8 cm sticks, making sure they are even in thickness. Place veggie batons into a bowl (preferably one with a flat bottom). Add a little olive oil (start with 1 Tbsp and add more if needed but not too much) and seasoning of choice, then lightly toss veggie batons to coat. I took the lazy smart option requiring less dishes to wash and just shook the bowl to coat the veggies.

Note about seasoning options: Keep it simple with salt & pepper or try other spices, such as paprika, cumin, rosemary, sage, or crushed red pepper. You could even try spice blends like Italian, Mexican, or Old Bay.

Spread out veggie batons on prepared baking tray and roast about 20 minutes, tossing halfway through, or until golden and slightly browned on the edges.
