Ombre Roasted Vegetables

The past weeks have been making me hungry for all the flavors of fall.  Don't you think sweet potatoes and butternut squash scream fall?

So I decided to do a sheet pan of roasting sweet potatoes and butternut squash together.   

I got to thinking how close the shades of colors are in these two vegetables.  

Then I thought I could throw some carrots in and it would bring them closer to an ombre shade.  

Gorgeous fall colors!

Roasting vegetables is pretty simple, but there are a few tips that will help you bring them to perfection, crisp on the outside and tender and moist on the inside.  

The first tip is in the preparation of the vegetables.  Cut the vegetables to the closest same size as much as you can to ensure that they cook evenly.

The second tip is in arranging the vegetables on a lined sheet pan with parchment paper as loosely as possible.  They can be slightly touching but not stack on top of each other to keep them from steaming instead of roasting.  What I mean by steaming is they will release too much liquid and not roast, but become dry.  

The third tip is in cooking temperatures.  The temperature needs to be extra high.  The temperature needs to be in the range of 425 to 500 degrees depending on what you are roasting.  For these vegetables, I roasted them at 475 degrees F.

We had these for supper.  My husband loved them.  I am so happy the temperatures are dropping here in Texas so we can cook more sheet pan meals. 

I hope you give these ombre roasted vegetables a try and see how fabulous they are!  

Enjoy xo!
