Vegan Roasted Vegetables With Garlic Tahini Sauce
These vegan roasted vegetables are flavorful, perfectly crispy, and perfect for a light side dish. Served with the tangy and garlicky tahini sauce, they’re sure to become a new favorite!
I just love roasted vegetables so much. Out of all the ways out there that you can make vegetables taste good, roasting is my go-to cooking technique. It’s so easy, but despite the ease, the result is always phenomenal! You just can’t go wrong. Bring them along to a family dinner or BBQ, and everyone will be impressed.
Even better if you can come up with a yummy sauce! And that’s exactly what we’re making today: the perfect vegan roasted vegetables featuring mushrooms, zucchini, and onion. We’re serving them with a garlicky and tangy tahini sauce for ultimate deliciousness with absolutely no fuss. Trust me, you will definitely love these as much as I do.
How to make amazing vegan roasted vegetables
It’s exceptionally simple! Start by preparing the vegetables by slicing the zucchini and the onions, then transfer them to a mixing bowl together with the whole mushrooms and stir together well.
Also preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/350 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Next, add the olive oil to the vegetables, together with maple syrup, salt and dried thyme and mix together once again. Transfer them to the baking tray and spread out into a single layer, then bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until softened and crispy.
Meanwhile, make the tahini sauce and serve with the vegetables when they’re done. That’s it!
Garlicky tahini sauce
The garlic tahini sauce that I love to serve with these vegetables is so flavorful, and really easy to make. Simply add the tahini, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce or tamari, plant based milk and garlic to a mixing bowl, and whisk together thoroughly.
It’s also very versatile. It’s ready in less than a minute and you can go ahead and serve it with meals like my miso-glazed tofu steaks and chickpea cauliflower stuffed peppers.
Tips and substitutions
- Feel free to add any other vegetables that are suitable for roasting! For instance, bell peppers, aubergines, broccoli and cauliflower all work really well. This meal is great for cleaning out the fridge!
- You can leave out the maple syrup, or replace it with another liquid sweetener of your choice.
- Add other spices depending on personal preference. For instance, paprika or cayenne pepper work really well for adding spice.
- To make this recipe gluten-free, simply make sure to use tamari as opposed to soy sauce in the tahini sauce.
Can I make these roasted vegetables ahead of time?
I love roasted vegetables straight out of the oven, while they’re at their crispiest. However, you can keep them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days, reheating either in the microwave or the oven before serving.
