Sheet Pan Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato & Veggies

I love recipes that require the least amount of effort, especially on weekdays when we already have so much to do. This sheet pan recipe is super easy but makes for a delicious meal. Toss veggies in flavourful spices and bake. Yes, it’s that simple. Whether you are making it for lunch or for dinner, you are going to love this easy recipe.

The spicy peanut sauce takes this sheet pan recipe to another level. The oven-roasted caramelization of onions, crispy sweet potatoes and delicious mushrooms is an excellent combination. I personally love eating them with rice for a nice warm, comforting meal. But if you looking for a refreshing meal, toss some salad in lime vinaigrette and top with these veggies and spicy peanut sauce. Cooking could not get any easier and more delicious!

  • Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half-way through for even cooking. After 30 minutes; take the mushrooms and onions out and let sweet potatoes cook for an additional 10-12 minutes.

For the Sauce:

  • In a bowl add in all ingredients for the sauce. Place the bowl in the microwave for 30-seconds. Mix and heat for an additional 30 seconds. Taste and adjust spice level if needed.


  • Once cooked, serve sweet potato and veggies on top of a salad, quinoa, couscous or on a bed of rice which is personally my favourite way. Top with spicy peanut sauce and you have yourself a delicious meal!
