Curried Roast Vegetables with potatoes, onion, carrots, red bell pepper, broccoli and green beans is an Indian-inspired feast that’s perfect as a side dish or festive vegan meal!
Hey, all! Are you craving something super tasty, unique and with global flair in these days of beans, rice and zero travel that’s also super easy? This festive, colorful and flavorful platter of Curried Roast Vegetables is IT!
The inspiration behind this recipe:
When my husband and I were first married, I was a vegetarian. I still love vegetables and vegetarian food to this day and this amazing vegetable dish is a long-time favorite of mine. However, this was actually the first time I ever made this recipe!
I found this recipe by Barbara Kafka in Parade Magazine shortly after my husband and I were married (25 years this fall–OMG!). He also loves to cook and is a good cook in his own right and surprised me one night by making this dish for me. Over the years, he made it several times. I never made it because I let him claim it as his own “specialty.”
Thankfully in my area, one of the things not in short supply during this time of crisis has been vegetables. I wanted to share it with you because it was always one of my favorite recipes and it’s healthy comfort food that’s perfect right now. It’s also FUN to make–and we can certainly use a little more of that!
How to make Curried Roast Vegetables:
- This dish uses a high-heat roasting process. Preheat your oven to 500 degrees. (Yes, 500 degrees! It made me nervous, too, but stick with me.)
- Cut red bell pepper, green beans, potatoes, carrots, broccoli and onion into large chunks. The potatoes should be in wedges.
- Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and let it simmer on low heat while you roast the vegetables.
- Start with the potatoes. Place them in a large roasting pan, drizzle with oil and season with salt and black pepper.
- Place them in the oven and roast for 15 minutes.
- Flip the potatoes and push them to one side of the pan.
- Add the carrots, red bell pepper, green beans, onion and garlic. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and black pepper.
- Roast for 15 minutes.
- Toss the broccoli with oil, salt and black pepper and place it over the potatoes to keep them from getting too brown. Roast for 15 minutes.
- Almost done… Good enough to eat just like this!
- Pour the heated sauce over the vegetables and carefully stir them.
- Place on a serving platter and garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
- That’s it!
- If this is our main meal, we serve with basmati rice. Otherwise, it’s a great side dish for any Indian-inspired meal!
- BTW, I am in LOVE with the cast iron pan I used! After doing the potatoes on them and how beautifully crispy they got, I’m always going to roast potatoes on it from now on! Grab the affiliate link below.
