Remember that time I ate my Chocolate Cherry Beet Smoothie for like, ten months straight?? Or when I ate pizza every day for a week…? Basically, when I find something I like, I eat it constantly for far longer than socially acceptable until I’m completely burnt out on it and never want to eat it again.

Let’s just say, I’ve had this Autumn Vegetable Sheet Pan Dinner for lunch (ironic?) every workday for the last month. She’s at it again, folks! I’m just a major fan of the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” mindset. And there ain’t nothing broke about this meal.

As many things in my life do, this recipe stemmed from my constant drive for perfect efficiency. What could be more efficient than a whole meal on one (ok, two) cookie sheet(s)?! It certainly makes cleanup easy and means I’m only one pan away from stuffing my face with the best fall has to offer.

Speaking of the best of fall… Delicata squash is perhaps my most favorite of all the fall squashes. And that’s saying something because I’ve been a butternut addict for years. But I just love the ease (sensing a theme here?!) of not having to peel the skin or fight with the massive body. They’re sweet and soft like acorn but without being stringy or dry. I most often roast them but you can also steam and stuff them, which I may have to try before they disappear from the farmer’s market.

Another of my favorite farmer’s market finds featured in this dish are apples. We went apple-picking at Branstool Orchards a few weeks ago and have been making a dent in our massive haul of fruit ever since. They bring a wonderful sweetness to this savory dish, but be on the lookout for some sweet recipes coming your way soon!

    Omg that is a literal PLATTER of veggies, and I love it. I’m a huge fan of sheet pan dinners too- any idea if the delicata squash is available at Kroger or Giant Eagle? I looove Farmers Markets but am not a good enough planner to remember to grab them on Saturdays 🙁 I also need to try acorn squash as well.

    Thanks for the recipe!

      I have seen delicata occasionally at Kroger this season! I also saw it at Trader Joe’s yesterday. Ooooh I just started cooking acorn squash in the pressure cooker and now I’m gobbling it up like crazy!

    Although I write about pretty much only dessert on my site, this is the type of thing I am usually eating for dinner. Beautiful recipe! And thanks for the inspiration 🙂 As odd as it sounds I never would have thought to include chickpeas in my roasted veggies!

      Yay!! I’m so with you, I eat roasted veggies straight off the pan for like, 90% of my meals hahaha. Definitely try adding chickpeas- you’ll love it!
