Roasted Crudite Platter

Roasted Crudite Platter

Welcome to the wonderful world of culinary arts. This is a place where we like to make fancy names for things just because we can. Think about it. Crostini is really just toast. Aioli is really just mayonnaise with garlic. A crudite is really just a vegetable platter.

But as funny as this is, I do believe this gorgeous roasted vegetable platter I created deserves a little extra something special. So, calling it a Roasted Crudite Platter is perfectly fitting.

If you’re looking for a different approach to a spring time party appetizer or even as a side dish, this is a simple way to feed a whole crowd. Find the complete recipe and steps for making this Roasted veggie platter at the bottom of the page.

The Best Veggies For Roasting:

When I make a crudite plate , I like to look at what vegetables are in season. As we approach spring, looking for fresh bright vegetables is a great place to start. I also like to look for different colored vegetables and vegetables that will roast well too. For this platter I looked to mix in a lot of oranges, yellows, purples, and greens. I incorporated root vegetables (carrots and sweet potatoes), leafy greens (Brussels sprouts and endive), and a handful of other color veggies like squash and red onion.

I had two separate baking sheets for roasting. This helps with cooking the vegetables properly. One pan I added my denser vegetables like the sweet potatoes, carrots, my whole zucchini, and the Brussels sprouts. For the second baking pan, I included the asparagus and the sliced yellow squash chips. Season the vegetables in olive oil, salt, and pepper. I like to keep the seasoning simple so the sauces can play a starring role in this dish as well.

Dips & Sauces:

You can go several different directions with this. You can go with a classic vinaigrette dressing or even ranch. If you’re looking for lighter options, try a Greek yogurt or a classic hummus dip.

I had leftover chipotle peppers from my Chipotle & Jalapeno Deviled Eggs and decided to make a chipotle mayo dressing. Last week I made this incredible Basil Aioli (fancy mayonnaise guys), and finally I picked up some of my favorite garlic Boursin cheese spread. By having the different flavors, you can mix and match  your veggies in so many different ways!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Sweet Potato, sliced into 1/4" sticks
  • 8 oz. Heirloom Carrots, sliced into sticks
  • 1 Yellow Squash, sliced into rounds
  • 1 Zucchini, cut into strips
  • 3 Mini Endives, core removed and leaves separated
  • 2 cups Brussels Sprouts, halved
  • 1 Bunch of Asaparagus
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Dips of Choice (I used Boursin Cheese, Basil Aioli, and Chipotle Mayo)

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice your vegetables in different ways (I listed the way I prefer in the ingredients).
  2. 2. Take the sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini strips, and Brussels sprouts onto one baking sheet. Keep each vegetable separated (don't combine them so they can be divided on the platter).
  3. 3. On the second pan, place the asparagus and yellow squash (lighter and thinner vegetables).
  4. 4. On each pan, drizzle olive oil as needed and season with salt and pepper. Bake the first pan for 20-25 minutes. Add the second pan about halfway through.
  5. 5. Assemble the platter with your dressings and dips. Place the veggies around the dips. I like to look at mixing and matching colors.
