Easy Roasted Winter Vegetables: A sheet pan, a few pans, and a short preparation time are required to prepare these simply cooked vegetables. It’s elegant enough to serve in your Holiday dishes and easy to prepare for any occasion! (Vegetarian, Vegan, GF, Clean-Eating)

A special thing occurs when you select healthy, in-season vegetables from the fall/winter season and add olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Then, you can place your vegetables in the oven to roast for approximately 1 hour. The most delicious, slightly caramelized, but perfectly tender roast vegetables come. Sprinkle on some Candied (or fresh) pecans and a few dried cranberries, and you’ve got yourself the perfect Fall/Winter dinner on a plate.

These winter vegetables that are roasted are “Thanksgiving holiday-friendly.” What is that? All your Thanksgiving favorites like sweet potatoes, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and green beans are incorporated into one dish. Instead of cooking each one separately (read lots of preparation and oven space), all you need to cook is in one pan ( This is so simple!) If you don’t have the cooking space in the oven for roasting the vegetables while you cook the other food items for a holiday, This dish can be cooked for up to a day and then heated just before serving. When you take the turkey from the oven to allow it to rest (and be cut ), put the vegetables inside the oven for a few minutes to heat up.

To make it easy, serve the roasted vegetables at room temperature. They’re equally delicious!

As delicious as these roasted winter vegetables can be perfect for your holiday feast, they are also so easy to cook that you can cook them anytime! I’m pretty obsessed with roasting winter vegetables currently. I have to smile because this is exactly me. I find something I like, and then I cook it repeatedly! until something else takes my attention, and I’m in love and repeat it! So, my November ” obsession ” is now officially roasted winter vegetables. I prefer to cook an entire batch to have plenty ready to make healthy meals to take to work.

You can take your salad game to a higher level by topping the best salad greens (like arugula, kale, or arugula) with quinoa and roasted winter vegetables (more on that shortly). Also, DE-LICIOUS…make a hummus wrap with roasted winter vegetables and a few lettuce leaves (OMG!). Today, I put them in eggs in my egg white omelet, with spinach and a splash of Sriracha, so many choices! This is assuming they can get off the pan! Warm, straight out of the oven, tiny bites of heaven! It would be best if you tried these beauties. I believe you could get hooked too!

Fry Winter Blend Vegetables

I always have a selection of veggies in the freezer to make quick and simple dinners. There is nothing better than how convenient frozen veggies are. I incorporate them into stews, soups, stir-fried dishes, pasta dishes, and rice bowls. They are also useful when I have last-minute guests staying over for dinner. In this situation, I’ll cook a package or two frozen veggies to serve with my grains or a simple main meal of protein.

I was skeptical about the ability to prepare frozen veggies with my Air Fryer and not risk them becoming too spongy. However, I found that the air fryer keeps the veggies more crispy than sautéing the vegetables in a pan with broth or oil. It also allows me to cook a large quantity at the same time. There’s no reason to defrost the food before cooking.

The Best Frozen Vegetables to Use in the Air Fryer

It is possible to air-fry most frozen vegetables. However, those with high moisture levels don’t perform as well as those that are dryer. Cruciferous vegetables appear to perform very well when air-fried. I’ve also observed how the freshness of frozen vegetables makes a difference.

What is “quality” in frozen vegetable products? My family is a fan of eating predominantly organically produced, non-GMO vegetable products that are flash-frozen. I have noticed that the farmers and packagers of organic frozen vegetables make an effort to freeze them in a flash right after they’ve been picked to ensure freshness and a lovely crisp texture. But many popular, non-organic frozen vegetable producers are going the same way. Look on the label to find the words “flash frozen.”

Take note that the time and temperature will vary with each kind of vegetable. For example, I’ve found that broccoli is less time-consuming than other cruciferous veggies. This is true regardless of whether they are the broccoli is fresh or frozen. I’ve accidentally burned more than one broccoli floret using my air fryer. The outside is black and the inside al-dente. They are bitter and uncooked. I haven’t tried freezing leafy greens such as spinach. However, I am a bit skeptical that they will perform well. I’ll have to try it. I’ve tried freezing cubes of winter squash. They turned out to be extremely soft. I just mashed them after cooking and served them with butter.

The thing is, frozen vegetables are an excellent bargain. They’re inexpensive, store effectively for a long period, and won’t cause financial hardship if you throw away the entire batch. Try experimenting until you have it just right. Set up the air fryer, and be sure to check the vegetables often as they cook. A few minutes of your time isn’t much sacrifice in exchange for perfectly cooked and tender vegetables. Frozen vegetables that are air-fried can save your life if a visit with family or friends is transformed into a dinner party and cocktails.

Air Frying Mixed Frozen Vegetables and Mixed Frozen Fruit

I love the various varieties of frozen mixed vegetables. The one I used for this recipe contains large pieces of carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower. The larger florets and cuts seem to perform nicely in air fryers. Smaller mixtures, like peas that contain corn kernels and tiny carrot cubes, are cooked too quickly. Additionally, these tiny frozen chunks of food can slip through the basket’s holes because they shrink as they cook. Although it’s not necessary, however, I prefer to coat frozen vegetables with olive oil lightly and then dress them with dried herbs. I used an Italian seasoning mix with salt, pepper, and a tiny amount of nutritional yeast.

Watch the vegetables and turn them every halfway during cook time. I discovered that 10 minutes of cooking at 375°F worked great for this mixture. Be sure to defrost the vegetables before placing them into the air fryer that has been pre-heated. You can mix them with gluten-free pasta and then top the dish with cheese feta and Kalamata olives to make a delicious and filling meal. This was exactly how I cooked my vegetables. I began the pasta, elbow macaroni in this case, approximately 5 minutes before putting the vegetables in the air fryer to ensure that everything was ready in the same amount of time. It is possible to slice the olives and then crumble the cheese while cooking. This can be a full meal within 15 minutes. You can skip the cheese to make a vegan alternative. You can substitute zucchini noodles for keto or paleo.

Stir-Fry Winter Vegetables with Crispy Tofu

Stir-fries may not be the first thing that comes to mind when people imagine comfort foods; however, for me, there’s nothing better than the aroma of a hot steaming pot of tender-crisp vegetables smothered with spicy sauce.

I love my stir-fries during winter; however, making a great mixture of vegetables can be slightly more difficult during this time of year as there are fewer options than in the summer. But, I’ll say this: the fruits and vegetables readily available in the winter months, such as the root vegetables, cruciferous veggies, and even mushrooms, can make a delicious stir-fry that is perfect for serving on a cold winter evening. With this in mind, I came up with this stir fry for winter vegetables using the top picks from each category. Carrots are my main root vegetable. They provide a hint of sweetness, broccoli florets give some crunch, and button mushrooms give it a flavorful note. You can substitute these using your favorite winter vegetables if you prefer. 

I’m all for adding veggies as proteins into my stir-fries, and tofu is usually my favorite protein. Because I aimed to create something tasty and satisfying, I cooked it with my preferred crisp tofu cooking method, which is also very simple. You need to dip the tofu cubes in cornstarch and fry them in oil until crispy and delicious. This recipe requires some oil because the cornstarch can take it away. It’s worth it, in my opinion; however, if you’re looking to cut down on your cooking time, cook the tofu in pans without cornstarch or baking the tofu. This can be done with no oil.

Winter Blend Vegetables Without A Steamer

A healthy diet can be challenging and costly; however, it doesn’t have to be. Frozen vegetables are a great option to cut costs and are easy to prepare. Don’t simply throw them in the microwave, but try this Flavorful and quick frozen vegetable recipe.

OTHER Reasons to Buy FROZEN VEGGIES

There are many reasons why I choose to buy frozen veggies over fresh ones. The most common frozen vegetables I purchase frozen are:

  • Broccoli florets and cauliflower florets.
  • Riced cauliflower.
  • The chopped leaves of greens.

Sometimes, I prefer fresh veggies, such as in my creamy Brussel Sprouts made with bacon or this healthy Mexican Street Corn.

1. Cheaper: I prefer to save money every time, and frozen veggies are generally less expensive than fresh ones. If you’re not planning to eat raw vegetables, purchasing them frozen can cost less.

2. Last Longer: There have been many occasions when I’ve bought cauliflower or broccoli and then had to throw it out because it was rotten. When I buy frozen vegetables, this won’t occur. They are there until I require them!

3. Faster: The frozen vegetables are cleaned and chopped, ready to use. This can save you time while cooking dinner! Do not put the steamer bags full of frozen vegetables into the microwave. This will result in bland and mushy veggies. According to my recipe, I guarantee that cooking frozen vegetables will be tasty. My favorite healthy dish to put in with dinner is this recipe for frozen cauliflower and broccoli. I typically buy my food at Aldi, and occasionally they offer the winter blend, which has both cauliflower and broccoli florets. This blend is one of my favorites to cook with. However, I’ve tried this recipe using different vegetables, and it always tastes great.

Winter Blend Vegetables With Chicken

Tonight’s dinner is a delectable one-pan chicken and roast vegetables that the entire family will enjoy. Delicious chicken and your favorite roast vegetables. It’s pure comfort food! It’s impossible to get wrong when it comes to sheet pan dinners, and all the food is cooked within one dish. This chicken is roasted with tons of delicious vegetables that are infusions of the juices from the chicken. This is delicious! In my book, it’s pretty close to being an ideal Fall or Winter dinner.

There’s no need for exact measurements for this simple dinner. This recipe is merely guidelines, indicating which vegetables and spices to use. Be aware that the veggies don’t turn crisp in this recipe due to the presence of the steam and juices generated by the chicken. However, they are incredible, soft, and delicious.

Tailor your taste to your liking

Here are some alternatives and variations you can try. Be aware that the recipe is only an outline to help you develop your recipe.

Chicken alternatives

  • Any bone-in chicken can be used for this recipe. It is just a matter of adjusting the cooking time. Chicken pieces should take around 30 minutes less than the whole chicken. You can also switch between these two options with a flattened spatchcocked chicken. Here’s a tutorial on ways to use spatchcock on chickens by yourself.
  • I usually buy Kosher chickens since they are already brined, making them more juicy and delicious.

Vegetable alternatives

  • The potatoes are delicious, along with the chicken juices from the roast. Therefore I don’t think you should leave them out. I make a mix of white potatoes (Yukon Gold or Red) and sweet potatoes.
  • Other vegetables suitable for roasting include Brussels sprouts, onions, celery, parsnips, carrots, and even green beans.
  • I like to add the butternut squash, eggplant, and red peppers, but they can become extremely soft. If you’re not a fan of soft vegetables, stick to onions, potatoes parsnips, parsnips, carrots, and celery. Add quick-cooking vegetables like broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower as you put the veggies back in the oven for roasting as the chicken rests. I like them soft, so I’m not bothering you!
  • A word of caution: brussels sprouts can be bitter. It is possible to substitute other vegetables or microwave them for approximately 90 seconds with a pinch of sugar before adding the vegetables into the pot.

Options for Seasoning

  • If you’ve got a favorite spice blend for chicken, use it. I love garlic onion powder and thyme oregano, and paprika. I also like adding lemon zest.
  • Feel free to alter the flavor with a Moroccan, Indian, Mexican or Italian spice blend.
  • Mix chopped fresh herbs before serving if there are any available.

Shortcuts

  • Utilize the chicken parts (instead of the whole chicken) to reduce the cooking time.
  • Use fewer veggies, e.g., onions and potatoes. Use just an additional vegetable to cut back on time needed to prepare.
  • Find a good Chicken rub instead of creating your seasoning rub.

Take a Step the most of your time.

  • The recipe can be prepared before roasting. It’s recommended to get the chicken to room temperature for about one hour before roasting.
  • Food leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator inside an airtight container for up to 3 days.

  • Author: Mustafa Rangoonwala
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 75
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Category: Main Course
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

Scale

Vegetables, Note 1

  • 1 pound of sweet potato peeled and cut into 2 inch/5cm pieces, about the size of 1 large
  • 1 lb Yukon (or red potato) washed and divided into 1/2 inch/3.8 cm pieces, about 2 potatoes
  • One large bell pepper is seeded and cored and cut into pieces of 2 inches.
  • Half large onions (or an onion red) Peeled and cut into 2 inches/5 cm pieces.
  • 15 Brussels sprouts, cut the outer leaves cut off in half or other veggies you enjoy. Note 2

A mixture of seasoning for vegetables

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Half teaspoon crushed garlic (or 2 teaspoons fresh garlic minced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of black and salt (or more according to your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon 2 dried thyme, rosemary, or oregano
  • Optional zest of one lemon

For Chicken, Note 2

  • 3 1/2 pounds of chicken – See the note below for 2/3 1/2 to 4 pounds (I get a kosher one because the brine is already in place).
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (use some more should you require it)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika, or smoke or smoked
  • One teaspoon of dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 425F/218C. Line a large sheet pan (rimmed baking sheet) with aluminum foil spraying thoroughly with oil spray for quick cleaning. It is also possible to utilize parchment paper in place of it, but it will become wet.
  2. PREPARE Vegetables Place all the ingredients for the seasoning mix in a large bowl. Mix well. Place vegetables on the pan in one layer.
  3. Prepare the chicken: Pat chicken dry using a towel. Combine olive oil, spice mix, salt, thyme, and black pepper in a tiny bowl. Rub the mixture over the chicken, including the skin (lift it gently to ensure it won’t tear). Place them skin-side down a chicken (or breast-side up if you use the whole bird) over the veggies.
  4. ROAST CHICKEN and vegetables Place the pan, vegetables, and chicken in the oven. Roast until the instant-read thermometer into the breast of the chicken reads 160F. Deg For whole chickens, Cook for between 55 and 75 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken. Deg For pieces of chicken, Bake for 30-40 minutes, based on the size of the pieces. Transfer the chicken onto a cutting board. Cover loosely with foil so that it can sit for about 20 mins. Stir in the vegetables and then return to the oven for an additional 10-20 minutes. If you’re a bit impatient (like me), increase temperatures to 450F/232C to complete the vegetables. If desired, make a gravy to cook the chicken. Note 4.
  5. Finish and serve. Cut the chicken portions into 4 to 8 sections if you’re using a whole bird. Transfer chicken and vegetables onto an eating platter. Serve with gravy or another condiment and condiment. 5..

Notes

  1. Vegetable alternatives
    • If you are looking for vegetables that stay in shape, Choose harder vegetables like normal potato (Yukon silver or red), sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, carrots, parsnips, onions, celery, and green beans.
    • If you’re okay with having your vegetables become extremely soft, some good choices include red bell peppers, eggplant, cauliflower, and butternut squash. You can also add quick-cooking vegetables such as broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower after putting the vegetables back in the oven for roasting while the chicken rests.
  1. Chicken alternatives

Any bones-in chicken can be used in this recipe. Be careful to adjust the cooking time accordingly.

    • I prefer buying the kosher chickens because they have been already brined, making them more juicy and delicious.
    • If you wish, use only dark meat or only light meat.
    • For a whole bird, take out giblets. Then tie the legs
    • For chicken pieces, remove excess fat; however, leave the skin on.
  1. Options for Seasoning
    • Feel free to alter the flavors by using the addition of a Moroccan, Indian, Mexican or Italian spice blend.
  1. To make fast chicken gravy Make 2 tablespoons of oil in a small pot. Bring to a medium temperature. Add 1 teaspoon dried thyme flour, and stir for 2 minutes until light brown (don’t allow it to darken). Add 2 cups of chicken broth (I used Campbell’s canned chicken broth, which was the whole can, plus a little water) and mix until it is smooth. Cook for a few minutes until the broth becomes thick. Adjust the seasonings by tasting and adding more thyme and the addition of garlic, onion powder, salt, and pepper as you like. Add extra broth if necessary to achieve the required consistency.
  2. Condiments are a choice (to serve instead of or along with gravy):
    • Cranberry-Orange Relish in 5 minutes (I save leftovers of this, particularly during Thanksgiving),
    • Homemade Chunky Applesauce
    • Savoury Peach Sauce
    • Fresh Herb Sauce (5 minutes)
