We eat Oven Roasted Vegetables from the moment I feel the first nip in the air, until spring.

Literally, all through the cool months I serve oven roasted vegetables at least once a week. It’s so satisfying to chop seasonal veggies into chunks and throw them in the oven, knowing a bright, flavorful, and healthful dish will follow.

In the past I have always done this with just a drizzle of olive oil and a hefty sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Yet a few days ago I found a recipe for oven roasted vegetables on McCormick.com and thought I’d share it with you for this week’s “Seasonal Seven.”

Roast Vegetables in the Oven | ASpicyPerspective.com #glutenfree #vegan #recipes

As mentioned last week, through the holidays I will share different recipes that feature the seven flavors that McCormick Spices feels capture the essence of the holiday season:  cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, sage, vanilla, peppermint and poultry seasoning.

This Oven Roasted Vegetables recipe includes two of these wonderful seasonings, nutmeg and sage.

Nutmeg and sage are two of my favorite fall flavors. They truly enhance the natural taste of the vegetables and give them a rustic fall quality.

The official McCormick recipe calls for 8 cups of any combination of assorted vegetables. I chose to use brussels sprouts, butternut squash, and red onion because I love the color and textural diversity.

Have fun throwing in any veggie you love best, but don’t forget the nutmeg and sage.

BIG flavor boost!

    This is my favorite way to eat vegetables in the fall and winter, hands-down. I love that you included onions – so yummy!

    Love that you used both nutmeg and sage on these–they sound fantastic!

    I love roasting veggies!!! It’s my favorite way to have veggies. I like to nestle whole sprigs of fresh thyme or tarragon from my garden in between the veggies. It adds a wonderful flavor and really livens it up. If you don’t mind me asking what kind of olive oil do you use? I’m starting to get afraid of using olive oil in coming because its smoke point is like 300-350 and I usually put the oven at 400 or 450 like most people for veggie roasting. What’s your take on that? Great post by the way love the idea of nutmeg.


    • Sommer — November 14th, 2012 @ 1:43 pm

      You know Joshua, I’ve never had smoking issues and I always roast at a higher temperature. I’d just give it a try and see what you think! Although you lose most of the health benefit from the olive oil, cooking it, it still imparts a wonderful flavor. :)

  8. Jeanetteposted November 14, 2012 at 9:54 am

    I love the idea of using nutmeg and sage – we roast vegetables all the time too in the fall/winter, but I’ve yet to try this combination – sounds fantastic!

    Okay, I adore the idea of adding nutmeg to roasted fall & winter vegetables! I’ve been adding it to almost everything lately, but had never considered this. Love!

    This looks so good. My kids will eat brussel sprouts roasted…so I will have to try this one on them. ; )

    Can you just pack all of your dishes, serving platters and plates and cooking gear and ship them to me – it’s all so pretty. Better yet, I have family in Asheville, you can just drop it off to them and I’ll get it the next time I’m there.. Yours is my favorite food blog!


    • Sommer — November 14th, 2012 @ 1:46 pm

      Sarah, Thanks so much for the kind words. *blushing*

      I get most of my dishes from Villeroy & Boch and other “aged” props from resale shops. I think my old worn baking sheet prop was 50 cents at the Habitat for Humanity Home Store. :)

    Thanks for participating in this awareness-raising event. My sister has Type I and I myself have to be pretty careful, especially when I’m pregnant, so I’ve been eating low-carb for nearly five years. New recipes are always a good thing! I’ve really gotten into roasted brussels sprouts recently, too, so this looks great.

    I love the wonderfully earthy quality to sage, especially with roasted vegetables.


  42. Chrisposted November 18, 2012 at 11:16 am

    I have always blamed the fact that I don’t like brussels sprouts on that I just hadn’t had good ones yet. Last weekend was having a group dinner and everyone raved about the sprouts. I still hated them. So I guess I really don’t like them, ha ha.

    Beautiful shots, Sommer, especially the first one. I sat there and studied your lighting and arrangement just taking mental notes.

    It’s a little crazy how much I love simple roasted veggies like these.
