    Ingredients

    • Brussels sprouts: Trim the sprouts and remove the tough outer leaves. Cut in half before tossing in the seasonings.
    • Carrots: Peel the carrots and cut into chunks.
    • Red onion: I like to add a red onion for a mild sweet flavor. You could use a yellow or white onion.
    • Oil: Used for roasting. I used olive oil, but vegetable or canola will work well.
    • Maple syrup: The carrots are tossed in maple syrup for a hint of sweetness. Honey can aslo be used if not vegan.
    • Seasonings: Kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and rosemary.

    Can you roast vegetables without oil?

    Oil helps to roast the vegetables evenly as it helps to conduct the heat, and it will also help them to crisp up at the edges. You can roast vegetables without the oil, but they may dry out a little. Toss the vegetables in a little water so that the seasonings stick to them and then roast them. If you find that they are getting a little dry during cooking, you can spray them lightly with a little more water.

    Can you make them ahead of time?

    Roasted vegetables are best served once they are cooked, as they can start to get soft and mushy if they sit for too long. Leftovers, however, will keep well for 3 days in the fridge and can be reheated at 400F for 10 minutes to warm them through and help crisp them back up.
