Dave and I are Gardeners. We enjoy planting our garden every Spring . We have a large garden with raised beds. Dave faithfully tends his garden plants. He gets a TON of satisfaction watching  his garden plants grow.

We have a fairly long growing season, about nine months of the year, so we harvest and roast veggies a LOT. I’ve linked a few of our favorite farm to table roasted vegetable recipes below.

Carb Counts for Veggies:

My brother is a diabetic and requires a diabetic diet. My sister in law is gluten free and on the low fodmap diet.

My daughter Amanda is on the ketogenic diet and for a while her sister followed a low carb vegetarian diet. They have taught me a lot about the needs of those seeking healthy low carb recipes. 

Amanda taught me that vegetables are sneaky when it comes to carbs. Yes, vegetables are clearly good for us. But as a part of a complete low carb diet plan the carbs in vegetables must be considered. Some vegetables are pretty high carb!

Find the carb counts on many popular vegetables at a glance with the chart below.

ALL vegetables offer various amounts of vitamins and minerals. Strictly controlled carb diets like the keto diet (which only allow 30 net carbs per day) require low carb choices. Reap the very best health benefits from your roasted vegetables. 

Choose low carb vegetables for a healthy low carb roasted vegetable recipe

Low carb vegetables give you about 6 to 8 grams of carbs per serving. Adjust your roasted vegetable recipe to use any vegetable you prefer.

If you change how much of each vegetable you serve, the carbs per serving can remain low. Balance is the key here.

Sheet pan Roasted Vegetable Recipe TIPS:

  1. Choose veggies that will take about the same amount of time to achieve roasted perfection on your baking sheet.
  2. Seasonings for roasting vegetables are a judgement call. For the sheet pan recipe we are highlighting today the seasonings are a large part of the recipe. The extra flavor is really astounding.
  3. Avoid juicy vegetables like tomatoes in this sheet pan recipe. The tomatoes will burst juices all over the place. Not the best result.
  4. We recommend olive oil or avocado oil for this recipe. A good high grade olive oil will give you the best flavor. Avocado oil is very heart healthy and will easily withstand the high roasting temperatures called for in this recipe.

Sheet pan Roasted vegetables are an easy vegetable side dish the whole family will enjoy.

Notes

You can roast ANY vegetable you prefer including root vegetables with this method.Your roasting time will increase for firmer, more dense root vegetables such as carrots, potatoes, butternut squash.

Also the oven time may be impacted by the size of heavier vegetables. If you prefer to roast large halves of butternuts for example plan an oven time of at least 40 minutes to fork tender.

The seasoning I'm using are what we enjoy. Experiment with your favorites. You might like Montreal steak or chicken seasonings, poultry seasonings
