HOW TO ROAST PERFECT VEGGIES IN THE OVEN | paleo diet meal prep

*music* Hi, this is Steph from StupidEasyPaleocom and today we're making my Roasted Mediterranean Veggies Recipe

I always love to throw a couple of trays of veggies in the oven on my meal prep daythat way I have already cooked veggies ready for during the week when things get a little bit hectic The combination of veggies in this recipe is flexible but this is what I really like to add: I start with two Roma tomatoes—those are the kind of plum tomatoes— they're a little bit longer and they have just such a nice concentrated flavor

I quarter those and I cut the seeds out That way the tray doesn't get too steamy We want to roast these veggies and get a nice caramelization around the outside so we don't want to include too much moisture I also chopped up a couple of zucchini and I love that combination of flavors Then I'll take an eggplant and sort of slice that in half in two semicircles and put that on the tray

I like to include a yellow bell pepper I love the combination of colors in this recipe as well And then I add a red onion or purple onion If you're shooting for getting as many colors of the rainbow as you can in one day, here you go To that I add a little bit of either olive oil or avocado oil

That just helps to coat everything and make sure that it's not going to burn and it's going get a nice caramelization around the outside, a little bit of salt and pepper, and then some Italian herbs that are the dried Italian herb blend Then I sprinkle that on the top I toss it all together with my hands because they're the best tools in the kitchen, and then I put that in the oven to roast at about 400 degrees F I roast this for about 20 to 30 minutes Just keep an eye on it toward the end

You really want the veggies to develop that nice light brown color around the edges You might want to stir once or twice throughout the roasting process, and then when I take it out I sometimes like to hit it with a little bit of fresh basil just for that nice vibrant, herby flavor that's fresh and contrasts really nicely with the sweetness of the veggies You can save this for any meal throughout the week, heat it up, and it's side dish For more recipes just like my roasted Mediterranean veggies head over to StupidEasyPaleocom
