Last night something occurred to me – Monday’s are the hardest days for me to cook dinner. After a relaxing or crazy busy weekend, the first day back to our weekday schedule is always the most exhausting. That must be why people call it a “case of the Monday’s.” Who can relate?

We’d been traveling over the weekend, so I didn’t have a chance to do my regular grocery shopping and meal planning on Sunday. I needed an easy dinner, and to me that meant a one-sheet meal if possible. So, I put a roast chicken in the oven that I could set and forget about for a couple of hours and then I took out a red bell pepper, green beans, and sweet potatoes and started chopping. Rather than saute the green beans and bell pepper and roast the sweet potatoes one at a time, I put them all on one baking sheet after seasoning them separately. Then, I cooked them at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and they were perfect!

The Seasonings

One sheet vegetables doesn’t mean it can only have one flavor. In fact, I came up with three different flavor profiles to give this simple meal more variety. I tossed the red peppers in gluten free teriyaki sauce. If you don’t have that on hand, you can substitute it with 1/2 gluten free soy sauce and 1/2 pineapple juice. I suggest doing this first so that you can let it marinate in the liquid while you prep the others.

Next, I used the same spice blend that I do for my 10 minute green beans recipe. For the sweet potatoes, I placed them in a ziploc bag, added one tablespoon of olive oil, and shook the bag to spread it out. Once arranged on the sheet pan, I sprinkled the tops of the sweet potatoes with cinnamon.

What goes well with Roasted Rainbow Vegetables?

So many things!! It pairs well with any protein – fish, roast chicken, steak, burgers, and more! If you want a vegan or vegetarian meal, you can pair it with veggie burgers, rice,  quinoa or any gluten free grain that you like as well.
