Sheet Pan Dinner Tips

Cooking the produce: The asparagus cooks fast, so you’ll add it to the sheet pan after the potatoes, carrots, and chickpeas have had time to roast on their own, about 20 minutes. Then, you’ll push them to one side, add the asparagus and onion, and continue roasting until done.

For variation: Because asparagus is seasonal, when not available, you can opt to use broccoli florets or halved brussels sprouts instead for your vegan sheet pan dinner. In this case, you can cook everything all together at once for about 40 minutes. As for the potatoes, use fingerlings or baby Yukon golds or purple potatoes as a substitute for baby red potatoes.

The herbs: If you don’t have the individual dried herbs the recipe calls for—thyme, basil, and oregano—you can use an Italian seasoning mix or herbs de Provence with good results.

Want to use vegan sausage in place of chickpeas? You can easily skip the chickpeas and add sliced vegan sausage when adding the asparagus and onion, cooking as directed. I tried this on my first go-around of this sheet-pan dinner, and it was delicious, too!

How To Make Vegan Sheet Pan Dinner

  1. First, you’ll want to line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, silpat or lightly grease with oil. Add the potatoes, carrots, and chickpeas to the center, drizzle with half the oil and most of the herb & spice mixture, and toss well to coat. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes. I find it helps the potatoes to brown nicely on the edges, when I arrange the potatoes flesh side down, as shown above.
  2. Carefully remove the pan from the oven, push the potato mixture to one side, add the onion and asparagus, add the remaining oil and herb/spice mix, and toss to coat, as shown above right. Place back in the oven and roast for 10 – 15 minutes.

Let cool and serve with sliced avocado and plenty of parsley sprinkled over top. Serve with a side of quinoa for even more protein and fiber.

To add more delicious creaminess, try adding a drizzle of this Vegan Aioli, Sriracha Cashew Cream, or Tahini-Miso Dressing!

This is an easy, plant-based dinner that all types of eaters will love!

If you don’t have all of the herbs on hand, use 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning or herbes de provence mix.

  1. Just so delicious! Added a little extra of the spices, and other than that, followed the recipe. I agree the avocado really made it SO GOOD. Seriously – try it!

  2. Ruth Grindeland says:

    I made this last night for dinner and mu husband asked if I could make it again tonight. Your recipe was that good!

  3. Absolutely delicious! I just made this without chickpeas & served over kale. It was so good & I will make again. Thank you Julie! Xoxo.

  4. I made this for my family last night and everyone loved it! I was anticipating a large amount of leftovers, as there are only 3 people in my family and I also made chicken to accompany this dish, but we ate all of it. I can’t wait to make this again. It is definitely a new family favorite. Thank you!

  5. Absolutely delicious!

  6. Lindsay Gray says:

    We absolutely love this recipe! It’s a go to recipe for us. Healthy, tasty, and easy to make. Thank you!

  7. Amazing! My husband and I are trying to eat more towards a vegetarian diet during the week. This recipe was so good we ate it as the main dish over quinoa rice. I felt so full I didn’t even miss the meat! Delicious!

  8. I’ve made this recipe (& adjusted versions of it many times now). It seems foolproof in the sense that you can sub any vegetables or beans & it still works. I personally just use the leftover aquafaba on the chickpeas after a quick drain and that is plenty of liquid to hold on the seasonings. I also make sure the cut end of the potatoes are flat against the baking sheet so they crisp up. We often like a sauce to go with this, and it’s great over quinoa, but makes a perfectly filling, easy dinner all on its own. Love that it comes together so quickly & you don’t have to babysit it while it cooks.

  9. This was so delicious!! Thank you!

  10. I love this one! Especially with avocado! It’s not the same without some sliced avocado
