These Perfectly Roasted Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes make a delicious healthy side dish and are seasoned to perfection!

Okay you guys, meal prep just got a whole lot tastier with these roasted veggies!  No seriously it did.  Broccoli and sweet potatoes are hands down my favorite thing to make when meal prepping for the week because they’re so easy to throw together and can be seasoned in so many different ways!  Now that the New Year has officially started I wanted to share some healthy options that are great for those busy work weeks when you don’t have much time to plan healthy dinner or lunches.

One thing I love about roasting veggies is that they can be super versatile and you can easily mix things up so you don’t feel like you’re making the same old thing over and over again.  For instance, try different seasonings and throw together different veggies such as asparagus, squash, peppers, onions, potatoes, etc.  You really can’t go wrong, just make sure to follow the basic method of roasting!  This particular recipe for one pan roasted broccoli and sweet potatoes is literally my go-to side dish almost every week and you will just LOVE the seasoning!  I like to throw these veggies in power bowls for lunches with grains and added protein, they make an easy side for quick healthy dinners alongside chicken or steak and I must say they taste pretty darn good heated up as leftovers too!

There are so many ways you can season your broccoli and sweet potatoes too.  The easiest foolproof way is simply using olive oil along with a sprinkle of sea salt and cracked pepper, but we LOVE some spice in our house so I wanted to share with you the seasoning blend I always use for my veggies!  It’s a mixture of garlic, paprika, oregano, thyme and cayenne pepper along with some salt and pepper.  I’m such a fan of this savory/spicy combo as it compliments almost everything that I cook.  I almost always make a ton of it all at once and store it in a little jar for multiple uses as it tastes great on chicken too!

To roast the veggies all you need is a basic non-stick baking sheet or roasting pan, a little olive oil and your seasonings.  That’s it!  If you don’t have a non-stick baking sheet then you can just use some parchment paper.  Make sure to cut your veggies the same length and thickness so that they all cook evenly then toss them with a little olive oil – just enough to coat, but not so much that you have excess at the bottom of the bowl.  Then add about a tablespoon of your seasoning, mix well and arrange on your pan making sure to give the veggies their space!  Crowding them will only cause them to steam rather than roast so feel free to use two pans if-needed.  Also make sure to cut your sweet potatoes into smaller chunks when roasting with broccoli so that they cook faster.  You could always add your broccoli later in the roasting process too and cook your sweet potatoes 20 minutes longer if you like them more crispy – completely up to you!

Enjoy and happy meal prepping!!

    I really enjoyed this recipe! I love broccoli and sweet potatoes but I have never made a savory sweet potato dish before. I thought everything paired really nicely and overall it was an easy meal to prepare! I ate it for lunch during the week and it kept me full the entire afternoon. Thank you so much for sharing this delicious recipe! 🙂
