  • Spread vegetables evenly on roasting pan. 
  • Evenly sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon seasoning over vegetables.
  • Mix vegetables around using a spatula. Evenly sprinkle with remaining 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon seasoning.

  • Cook for another 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

*The following vegetables work well for roasting: root vegetables (onions, potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets, garlic, turnips, fennel, rutabaga), bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, zucchini, squash, asparagus, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, green beans.
**I like to use Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spray, which is available at many grocery stores, Amazon, and thrivemarket.com. (To learn why I don't cook with canola and other vegetable oils, click here.)
***Old Bay Seasoning is available in many grocery stores and on Amazon.
