Although roasting or baking vegetables brings out their natural sweetness, roasted vegetables seasoned with spices add flavor to your meal.

There are various ways to season your vegetables, and the combination of spices is endless. You can use this spice combo for seasoned broccoli, seasoned asparagus, or seasoned cabbage. Why you can even use it as a spice for vegetable soup! Everything depends on what flavor profile you want to go with for that meal.

It's easy to make your seasoning for roasted vegetables. After chopping, slicing, or dicing your vegetables, drizzle them with extra virgin olive oil and salt. You can add this roasted fall vegetable seasoning to that base for flavoring.

Best seasoning for roasted vegetables

The best-roasted vegetable seasoning combination is the classic combination of onions, garlic, paprika, and parsley. Add garlic, onions, and parsley to most roasted vegetable dishes. Paprika is another spice added to infuse depth to roasted vegetables' sweetness or protein.

For this recipe, you can use sweet paprika for sweetness, smoked paprika for a smoky profile, and even spicy paprika. It all depends on the flavors you prefer eating.

Olive oil is best for roasting vegetables. It makes veggies crisp and adds a unique flavor to the meal you can't get with any other oil.

Since you're probably roasting vegetables below 425˚F, you don't need to worry about exceeding the oil's smoking point. Anyway, it depends on the quality of the oil you buy!

To season

Preparing your vegetables for roasting

Before seasoning, you'll need to wash, dry, and prepare your vegetables. They should be ready to take on the spices you'll be adding. Preparing vegetables for roasting is easy. You need to ensure your veggies are washed well and dry before preparing. Some vegetables may need peeling, while others can be roasted with the skin on. For instance:

  • Oven Roasted Carrots (peeled)
  • Roasted Spaghetti Squash (skin on)
  • Oven Roasted Beets (either peeled or skin-on)

How to make seasoned roasted vegetables

Spiced roasted vegetables are the perfect side dish for any meal. Here is how to do it:

  • Preheat your oven to 400˚F (many ovens have a "roast" setting; use the bake setting if there's no "roast" setting).
  • Wash and dry the vegetables.
  • Prepare them – slice, chop, or dice the vegetables to the desired size.
  • Place the prepared vegetables on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Drizzle olive oil over the top.
  • Sprinkle the seasoning we made previously over the vegetables.
  • Toss (with hands/tongs) to evenly distribute the olive oil and seasoning over all vegetable chunks.
  • Roast vegetables according to the recipe's specifications. A ½-inch thick vegetable will need approximately 35 minutes.

Tips for perfectly roasted vegetables

With minimum effort, you can have a delicious and nutritious meal. But there are some tips for perfectly roasted vegetables:

  • Oven rack placement - Ensure you position the top rack in the middle of the oven. If you slot it higher, your vegetables may burn. Place the second directly below the first if you're roasting multiple racks. Swap the racks halfway through roasting (about 20 minutes after starting the roast).
  • Even size - Chopping, slicing, or dicing your vegetables into an even size will ensure they are all cooked evenly. 
  • Follow a recipe - If you have a recipe, following it is always a great idea. If not, check your rack/pan once the veggies have begun to change color and texture (approximately after 25 to 30 minutes). This way, you know how long it takes to cook your meal.
    Less is more - When it comes to seasoning, remember that you can always add but can't remove. Ensure you're not over-seasoning your vegetables – especially with salt – so you can taste your veggies, and not just the seasoning.
