This recipe is incredibly easy to follow and involves very little prep.
Let’s make this one pan roasted vegetable gnocchi dinner!
Ingredients for One Pan Cauliflower Gnocchi Dinner:
To make this sheet pan dinner you will need: cauliflower gnocchi, pecans, acorn squash, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, red onion, brussel sprouts, sage, garlic, maple syrup, olive oil and salt & pepper.
I included substitutions for you below.
How to Make Sheet Pan Maple Roasted Vegetables:
This dish is as simple as can be to make. All of the ingredients take the same amount of time to cook! It truly is a “set it and forget it” type of recipe.
First, chop your vegetables by cutting the brussel sprouts in half the horizontal way and remove the stems.
Cutting acorn squash can be tricky (believe me, I sliced my hand). The trick is to cut along the indents of the acorn squash. Remove the skin. I also removed the skin prior to cutting, but I will admit, this was tough. I know next time I will leave it on and remove it once it is cooked.
Dice the red onion into small, bite size pieces.
Separate the sage from the stem.
After preparing the vegetables, place all ingredients, other than the sage, into a bowl and mix until they are well coated in the maple syrup and olive oil. Note, you will use frozen cauliflower.
Then, pour the contents in the bowl onto your greased sheet pan evenly. Place the sage on top!
Next, you will pop it in the oven. This one pan maple roasted vegetable meal takes approximately 30 minutes to bake, and you must flip the contents after 15 minutes.
It is that simple! In under 40 effortless minutes you will have a tasty, flavor filled, hearty meal! This Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetable Gnocchi could not be any easier.
