In this post, I’m sharing how to make a colorful Roasted Vegetable Medley with Parmesan.
I must admit that I got my inspiration for this recipe after eating lunch out one day. We were meeting Mr. J’s sister for lunch on a stop in her travels and she ordered the vegetable medley side.
My initial thought about ordering a vegetable medley from a restaurant was…boring! That’s because that’s been my experience but this was different.
It was a beautiful blend of colorful veggies that really please the eyes and I had to take a photo so I could re-create it at home. So here we are.
Healthy Roasted Vegetable Recipe
Seriously, aren’t all of those gorgeous colors just beautiful?
What is a vegetable medley? Simply put, a vegetable medley is a blend of vegetables together in a dish that work well together. The vegetables that you use change change according to your tastes.
Can I roast vegetables ahead of time and reheat? You can if you’re really limited on time but this recipe only takes about 20 minutes to prepare. To save time, try prepping the vegetables and refrigerate until ready to cook.
Are roasted vegetables with Parmesan cheese healthy? Freshly grated Parmesan is a healthy option (skip the green can from the store). Parmesan is low in fat and adds a delicious finish to roasted vegetables.

Although this is a very simple recipe, the final presentation screams gourmet side dish. I’d gladly serve this up to company or for holidays.
