What’s In This Meatless Sheet Pan Dinner?

  • Chickpeas: you can used canned or home-cooked, whatever you happen to have on hand.  No chickpeas?  No problem – add your favorite bean or dice up some tofu for a little extra plant protein.
  • Potatoes: I typically use a yellow potato for sheet pan meals, I find they crisp up nicely in a hot oven.
  • Carrots: for that classic root vegetable sweetness.
  • Onions: I used red for this recipe, but you can use yellow or whatever you have on hand
  • Garlic: I halve a whole head of garlic in this (we are major garlic lovers over here) which is a nice addition to the sweet root vegetables.
  • Sweet Potatoes: For color and a little extra sweetness.
  • Lemon Caper Dressing: so simple! I combine olive oil, lemon juice, capers, maple syrup, and whole grain mustard together in a mason jar, cover and shake well, and pour over the roasted dinner when its done!

How Do I Make This Plant-Based Sheet Pan Dinner?

  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.  Add the olive oil, Herbes de Provance, salt, sweet potato, yellow potato, carrots, chickpeas, and red onion.  Toss to combine, coating the vegetables in the oil and spices. Make a space in the middle, and place the head of garlic, facing up.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.  After, carefully remove sheet pan from the oven and add the cherry tomatoes.  Return sheet pan to the oven to cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • To make the dressing, add all the ingredients to a pint sized mason jar and shake well to combine.

This healthy sheet pan dinner recipe is super versatile – you can add or swap out any of the vegetables. Butternut squash would be a great substitute if you don’t have sweet potatoes. Or roast parsnips instead of carrots. the cooking time should remain the same if you swap an ingredient or two!
