Simple Maple Oven Roasted Vegetables are sweet, savory, and completely delectable! These colorful roasted veggies are a healthy side dish that’s bursting with flavor!
Simple Maple Oven Roasted Vegetables have been a Fall and Winter favorite in my house for years. They have the sweet and savory flavor combination that I just love. The salt, garlic, and onion flavors are contrasted by the sweetness of the maple and sweet potatoes.
I like to roast a big batch of these veggies. Then I can have them with lunch the next day or add them to Sweet Potato & Black Bean Quesadillas!

Ingredients for Maple Oven Roasted Vegetables
ROOT VEGETABLES – I love the combination of sweet potatoes and parsnips in this recipe. Carrots and pearl onions would make a great addition too! You could even use this same roasting method for Brussels sprouts. YUM!
MAPLE SYRUP – I strongly suggest using pure maple syrup for this roasted vegetables recipe. You just won’t get the same caramelized veggie result with pancake syrup, so maple syrup is the way to go!
How to Roast Vegetables in the Oven
- First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. We need a higher temperature to thoroughly roast firm veggies.
- Then you’ll mix together the chopped parsnips and carrots, oil, and seasonings in a large bowl. Then divide the veggies between two large baking sheets and spread everything in a single layer.
- Roast the veggies in the oven for about 18 minutes. Then you’ll carefully take the pans out of the oven and drizzle maple syrup all over.
- Flip the veggies with a spatula, then place the pans back into the oven for another 12 minutes. For a total cook time of 30 minutes.
- Remove vegetables from the oven and serve warm.
You’ll know the roasted veggies are done when they’re golden brown and tender when pierced with a fork or knife.
Are roasted vegetables healthy?
Yes! Roasting vegetables is one of the healthiest ways to prepare them. Adding maple syrup bumps up the calorie count and sugar content, but maple syrup is a naturally occurring sugar. These sweet roasted veggies are a phenomenal addition to a healthy dinner!
What goes with roasted vegetables?
Since these roasted root vegetables are on the sweeter side, I recommend serving them as an accompaniment to a savory entree.
