To enhance the flavor of our colorful roasted summer vegetables we’ll toss them with a delicious balsamic-honey-marinade, which is super easy to whip up. And did I mention that this dish is extremely meal-prep worthy? So, without any further ado, let’s get started.

Healthy & Nutritious

Do you know those days when you realize you have eaten hardly any veggies today? It still happens to me far too often which is why I love recipes like these sheet-pan roasted summer vegetables.

All you have to do is to wash and chop some vegetables and put them on a baking sheet. And while the veggies are roasting in the oven you can take care of other things. And as soon as you come back there’s a bunch of roasted vegetables waiting for you to be eaten. 

On top that, recipes like these sheet-pan roasted summer vegetables are a great meal prep component. Since I posted my recipe for autumn roasted vegetables last fall, I got into the habit of prepping it every week. Once I got home from my waitress-shifts on the weekends, all I had to do is to reheat some of these veggies for a healthy and delicious late-night-dinner. Therefore, I thought it’s time for a summer version!

How to Make this Recipe

Honestly, this sheet-pan roasted summer vegetable recipe couldn’t be easier. The only thing we have to do is to chop the vegetables.

Therefore, we start by washing all of our veggies thoroughly and cleaning the mushrooms with a kitchen towel or mushroom cleaner. Then cut the zucchini and eggplant into thin slices, the mushrooms into quarters and the broccoli into individual florets.

Now put all the sliced vegetables and tomatoes on a tray and we’ll take care of the marinade. For this, we simply put all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix them with a fork or a small whisk and pour it over the vegetables.

Next, use your hands and give it a good toss. Make sure that the marinade is spread well, and the vegetables are evenly distributed over the tray. Then pop it in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes at 200°C or 400°F.
