Parmesan Roasted Vegetables may seem like a silly recipe to be including on the site, mostly because they seem like a no brainer. But I can assure you, WW life changed for me when I started roasting these bad boys and adding the cheese on top.

Why roast vegetables?

Roasting vegetable is a great option for a few reasons. First, it enhances the natural sweetness of the vegetable. Carrots for example can taste as sweet as sweet potatoes when roasted properly. Second it adds texture. The crunch of the broccoli when roasted provides a great crunchy addition to dishes since we tend to shy away from breading on Weight Watchers.

I actually love roasting broccoli (without Parmesan) and chopping up the crispy bits to add as toppings to dishes like creamy Asian curries or even over creamy macaroni and cheese.

Best Vegetables for Roasting:

  • Carrots, these are my absolute favorite – I could eat them with every meal. I never use baby carrots though as the roasted texture would be different.
  • Broccoli and Cauliflower – for the crispy bits 😉
  • Bell Peppers – They’re so flavorful, like candy!
  • Red Onions – okay I lied about the carrots, roasted red onion wedges are my favorites. I put them in everything, I actually often roast sheet pans of them for the week.
  • Cabbage – I know people are all about the Brussels Sprouts nowadays, but let me tell you, a delicious roasted cabbage wedge is enough to convert any cabbage hater. I LOVE THEM and roast them often to go on the side of Asian dishes.
