Balsamic Roasted Vegetables are a tasty and healthy way to eat your veggies. When you roast them in the oven, the caramelized balsamic vinegar adds amazing flavor to this easy side dish recipe. Naturally gluten-free, paleo, and Whole 30 compliant, and you can even choose low carb vegetables for a keto option!

This recipe may not be a novel concept, but I love roasting veggies. It really just takes a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. It’s the caramelization from roasting them at a high temperature gives them such a delicious flavor.

I make Basic Roasted Cauliflower pretty much once a week, and in the fall Roasted Butternut Squash joins the regular rotation. I just love how the caramelization enhances the flavor of the vegetables. They make a simple side dish, of course. You can use them on top of a salad. Or add them to rice or cauliflower rice bowls with your favorite protein like Chili Lime Shrimp or Honey Balsamic Glazed Steak Bites.

Sometimes I like to switch things up a bit and add some flavors to complement whatever I am making as the main course.

This time, the key flavor addition is something most of you probably have in your pantry at all times. It just takes a little balsamic vinegar to give this Balsamic Roasted Vegetables recipe tons of flavor!

    I made this for dinner tonight using Brussels sprouts, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms, and garlic. It was delicious! Thanks for the great recipe!

    I just came across this on Pinterest and it looks amazing. I was considering what to have with my steak tonight and I think I just found it.

    I always like adding balsamic (or red wine vinegar) to everything too – it improves the taste every single time!

      Michael, I am so glad that you found a new recipe to try. I agree with you 100% that balsamic improves the flavor of so many dishes! I hope you enjoy the dish.

    I wonder where the tomatoes are in the pictures – I would like to see how they held up to the heat. This would be an insta hit in my house. My guy likes to put balsamic on nearly everything he cooks and everyone (from my dad to my 3 year old) always love it.

      i’ve done roasted veggies with balsamic for some time now…love it….
      also now use white balsamic with greek salad…found with lemon, or red wine vinegar
      or even dark balsamic you have to be careful as those types of acids can overwhelm.
      …but white balsamic has a subtle sweetness to it, too, so it balances the peppery bite
      of say, the red onions….try it…so fun to experiment.
