Spring Roasted Vegetables

Roasted Vegetables are a favorite in our house. This combination of spring vegetables has been happening a lot in our house lately! The perfect mindful side dish for any protein.

The Perfect Blend of Spring Vegetables

Spring means more sunshine but doesn’t always mean higher temperatures. While we are welcoming the longer days, the cool temperatures mean I am still sticking with hot meals.

As the farmers’ markets open with spring produce, grab a variety in a rainbow of colors and put them together in this easy dish.

These Spring Roasted Vegetables combine my favorite spring veggies. It’s a simple side dish that combines potatoes and lighter veggies, like cauliflower and asparagus. The leeks and lemon slices give these roasted vegetables so much flavor!

While I love this particular combination, it’s really a method. See notes below on how to adapt this recipe to whatever spring vegetables you love. Some of them cook longer (like the leeks and potatoes), and some only need to roast for a few minutes (like asparagus).

To brighten up the dish for spring, I add lemon slices. The lemon juice soaks into the leeks and adds a bright, sweet flavor.

I roast these in my Sharp European Convection Oven. I love being able to set my oven to convection bake so that veggies and meat cook evenly and take some color. The convection bake mode uses a fan to evenly circulate air during baking.

This not only keeps the heat evenly distributed but also dries off excess moisture on the vegetables or meat, allowing easier browning.

And of course, the browned bits are always the best part of roasted vegetables!
