Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Note: This was first posted in Jan 2009, now updated with new photos and improved recipe.

These roasted vegetables are the side dish that always occupy my roast chicken. Nothing fancy at all, but definitely so easy to prepare, healthy and delicious! I basically used the same herbs and ingredients that was used for the roast chicken (usual suspects like thyme, rosemary and garlic). You can roast the vegetables on its own, but I usually cook it with the roast chicken during the last 40 minutes of roasting. The chicken juices and aroma further flavour the roasted vegetables. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!

Roasted Vegetables Recipe

Roasting vegetables is almost a non-recipe and it is very flexible. You can vary the amount of vegetables so long as they occupy one layer on the roasting tray. For the most basic seasoning, you only need salt and pepper. But feel free to add whatever herbs and ingredients you have in the pantry (such as rosemary, thyme and garlic) for added flavour.

Serves: 2-3

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 40 mins


  • 2 russet potatoes peeled and cut to uniform small chunks
  • 2 carrots peeled and cut to uniform small chunks
  • 1 zucchini cut to uniform small chunks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 5 to 10 peeled garlic cloves slightly bruised


  1. Add cut potato and carrots to roasting tray. Coat with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Add herbs (rosemary, thyme, bay leaf) and garlic cloves. Toss to mix everything together.
  3. Ensure the vegetables occupy one layer on the roasting tray (not stacked). Roast vegetables in preheated oven of 200°C (400°F) for approximately 20 minutes.
  4. Take the tray out from the oven and add in the zucchini. Use a spatula to give the vegetables a good stir.
  5. Return tray to oven and continue roasting for another 20 minutes, until the vegetables are nicely roasted (slightly wrinkled and browned at the edges).

    That pan of veggies looks REAL good…a nice non-meat option.

    This is a great way to enjoy the vegetables. Kinda beat stir-frying.

    What type of oven are you using? I have been meaning to ask you ..

    I love roasted vegetables but sometimes I just think it takes very long (40mins) to have my side-dish ready esp when the main course takes shorter to cook :O

    This is a must have when I roast chicken. I think one of my earliest (and only) memory of my dad cooking was roast chicken with roasted veg :) That said, the belacan lala is what my palate’s been craving these days!

    Chunky , moist , lips smacking. I’m not much of a veg person. In fact I get cranky when there’s no meat on my plate however I’m willing to settle for vegs n potatoes roasted to perfection like yours! (with an egg on the side) can’t do without my protein. sorry. drives me insane.
