Tips for Roasting Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is a great way of cooking them. It especially comes in handy if you need to make several dishes at the same time. Just toss everything on a baking sheet and use your free time to make something else.

Today we would like to share with you our favorite ways of making roasted vegetables even more flavorful. These tips are versatile, so be sure to try them on any vegetables you like.

Tips for Roasting Vegetables

Changing Oil

To add some extra flavor try roasting your veggies with flavored or nut oil. Drizzling some sesame oil on top after the roasting also works great.


Add some zest or juice of lime, lemon, or even orange to the roasted vegetables. You can also try roasting them with slices of citrus fruit to make the dish even more flavorful.


Toss almost cooked vegetables with some aged cheese like Parmesan and continue to cook until the cheese is melted. Alternatively, sprinkle some crumbled feta or goat cheese on the already roasted vegetables.

Leftover Spices

Don’t be afraid to experiment. If your kitchen cabinet has some spices that you bought for a particular dish but never used, it’s time to add new flavors to your veggies.


Mix a spoonful of Dijon or honey mustard with some oil to toss any vegetables. To add some texture opt for a whole-grain one.


Add some honey or maple syrup before roasting to complement earthier vegetables.


Just chop a little bacon, toss it with your veggies, and roast everything together. Crispy, smoky bacon will add great texture as well as flavor to the dish.


Who said you could use salad dressings only for salads? Drizzling them on top of warm roasted vegetables is such an easy way to make the dish more interesting!

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
