Roasted vegetables

One of my absolute favorite meal preps to have around is a big sheet pan of roasted vegetables. It’s an easy way to make sure your veggies don’t go to waste in the fridge. Plus they can be paired with nearly every main dish during the week!

These harissa roasted veggies pack in delicious spicy flavor, and are tossed in the oven until they’re perfectly tender.

Roasted sheet pan veggies are truly the easiest way to eat more vegetables during the week.

I love serving them with a simple homemade tahini sauce, and snacking on them throughout the day when I want something savory.

Pair them with some chicken or fish, serve them in a taco, or toss them in a fall inspired grain bowl. There are so many ways to enjoy these vegetables- you can’t go wrong!

The perfect sheet pan veggies

Here are a few tips to perfecting these sheet pan veggies:

  1. Use a large baking sheet– if your veggies are piling over each other, that means your pan is too small and will take much longer to cook through. If needed, you can split the veggies onto two pans to make sure the vegetables cook evenly.
  2. Toss your vegetables halfway through– halfway into baking time, make sure to remove the pan from the oven and give the veggies a good toss
  3. Broil to finish– I like to finish off the cooking process with a 4 minute broil, to add a nice crisp to the top of the veggies
  4. Let the pan sit in the oven after its been shut off or another 20 minutes- I prefer my veggies cut slightly chunky, so I like to leave them in the closed oven for another 20 minutes after baking time for ideal texture. The smaller your vegetables are cut, the shorter baking time is needed.

Total time






  • 1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cut into
    cubes or halves

  • 1 red onion, sliced into thick strips

  • 5-6 carrots, peeled and chopped
    into 1″ pieces

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 olive oil

  • 2 tbsp 2 of harissa (hot chili pepper paste)

  • 1 tsp 1 of salt, plus more to taste

  • 1 tsp 1 garlic powder

  • 1 tsp 1 paprika

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 cumin

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 smoked paprika


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F
  • Add the chopped veggies to a large sheet pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil and harissa. Pour the mixture over the vegetables and toss them together with your hands to fully coat them.
  • Mix together the spices in a small bowl, and sprinkle them over the vegetables. Toss together again to fully coat.
  • Bake for 1 hour, flipping halfway through. You can broil the veggies for 2-3 minutes on high to crisp the tops- make sure to rotate the pan halfway. **Baking times may vary depending on your oven and size of your baking sheet. I like to leave my tray in the oven after I turned it off for an additional 20 minutes for best texture.
  • Adjust salt if needed and serve with your favorite main dish!

  1. Made almost directly according to recipe but used carrots, cauliflower, onions and tomatoes for my adult children and and SO. They LOVED it! Paired with zaatar salmon and shrimp and and assortment of middle eastern dips and pita. It was a hit all around!

  2. I only have powdered harissa seasoning.
    How much should I use to equal to your 2 Tbsp. of harissa paste?
    Can’t wait to try your recipe!

    • I also have only powder, what I tend to do is mix equal parts of powder and olive oil. So if it says 2 tablespoons harissa paste, I use 1 tablespoon powder at 1 tablespoon oil. Thus far has worked out great!

  3. Made this recipe as a side dish and my boyfriend said he could eat it EVERYDAY! So good!

    This was fantastic! Certainly a new staple in our house. I put these veggies on a bed of homemade yellow rice and topped with homemade tzatziki and hummus. Easy, healthy and delicious 5 star meal.

  5. Do you have a recipe for the homemade tahini sauce you mentioned? Would love to make it with this dish for dinner this week!
