What real food ingredients will you need to make this sweet balsamic roasted vegetables recipe?
I’ve used so many different combinations of vegetables for this recipe. Here it was sweet potato, beet, mushrooms, peppers and broccoli. Before it was asparagus, onions, peppers, and potatoes. Seriously, use up those veggies in the fridge and season them with a little bit of olive oil, local honey and balsamic vinegar.Print

- 8–10 cups veggies (any combination you have on hand – here I used (about 2 cups each) sweet potato, beet, broccoli, mushrooms and bell pepper), all washed, trimmed and chopped into roughly even-sized pieces
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoons sea salt
- Fresh Ground Pepper, to taste
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Preheat the oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
- Transfer the prepared veggies to the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes before giving the pan a shake to toss and turn the veggies. Continue to roasted for another 10-15 minutes.
- When the veggies are just golden brown and fork-tender remove from the oven. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and honey evenly over the veggies. Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes more or until the balsamic vinegar has sweetened and the honey has just started caramelized.
- Prep Time: 10 minutes

HOW TO MAKE THIS ROASTED VEGETABLES WITH BALSAMIC RECIPE…
This recipe is one of my favourite kinds – easy! Everything gets chopped up into fairly equal pieces – if they’re not all that equal that’s ok too but the more equal in size the more evenly they will cook.
Drizzle with a little bit of oil, season with salt and pepper and then everything goes into the oven all at once. Remember to flip the veggies about halfway through – just give them a stir to make sure that no one is burning or cooking too fast. When they are fork-tender (around 30 minutes or so) get your balsamic vinegar and your honey and drizzle a couple tablespoons all everything! The drizzled veggies go back into the oven for just enough time for the balsamic vinegar to sweeten up a little bit and the honey to get sticky and slightly caramelized.
These lower maintenance style recipes are my favourite – really, the oven and the microwave timer are doing most of the work here – because they mean more time to do other things like scrolling Pinterest and Instagram #letsbereal
This Balsamic Honey Roasted Vegetables recipe makes a TON of veggies – perfect for feeding a crowd or having delicious and nutritious lunches all week long!

As I mentioned above, Fall really influenced my veggie medley for this recipe but you can absolutely use whatever veggies you have on hand. Carrots, broccoli, zucchini, potatoes, green beans would all be fantastic here. If you are using a hearty root vegetable (like a beet or a squash) you may want to cut them a little bit smaller than everyone else as they typically have a much longer cook time.
