With the upcoming holidays, I wanted to share some easy vegetable side dishes with you! I may not be the best at baking or knowing how to make a perfect steak but my specialty is definitely cooking vegetables. I can cook them every which way and know how to make them taste amazing while still being healthy.

When you need a simple vegetable side dish for a holiday, it can be hard to think of something because you are already putting so much effort into making your other dishes. That is why I kept these simple.

Chop up your vegetables of choice, roast in the oven and top with a couple of different flavors and your side dishes are ready to go. These are great for anytime of year but especially Thanksgiving, Christmas and any other holidays.

I am all about getting those veggies in year-round and these recipes are ones that I make all the time at home. I like my roasted vegetables a little crispy and well done but if you like yours a little less done, feel free to take them out of the oven a little earlier.

My favorite way to eat vegetables lately that I literally cannot get enough of are Asian style roasted vegetables. After roasting, I toss them in soy sauce, garlic powder and little vinegar and they are so delicious! My favorite! You can roast most veggies this way such as green beans, broccoli, carrots, zucchini, peapods and more.


I love Brussels sprouts and if you have not had them roasted, I urge you to try them that way. I can't stop eating them! I like covering Brussels sprouts in a little parmesan cheese, lemon juice and garlic for an easy side dish loaded in flavor.

Finally, I roasted some carrots which I tossed in a garlic, dill, dijon mustard sauce. So simple yet loaded in flavor. We also love to eat green beans this way. All of these dishes are perfect for the holidays and I hope they encourage you to throw a sheet pan of veggies in the oven to roast.

To roast all of these vegetables, I used the new Land O Lakes® Soft Squeeze™ Spread from Kroger. It was perfect for these dishes to provide flavor, to help brown the vegetables and to help everything not stick to the pan. It comes in an easy to squeeze bottle that helps reduce mess. I love just being able to grab it from the fridge and squeeze a bit on the vegetables to roast them. If you are using it on something like toast, it is extra convenient because the container stays clean and crumb-free.

  1. I see in your pic the Land O Lakes spread is next to their butter with canola oil product. This new spread is canola oil with some butter (looked up the ingredients), which may or may not influence people to buy. Your food pics always do look delicious and I'm a huge veggie lover too!
