I used the ingredients from the bundle to come up with this Cheesy Roasted Vegetables recipe. It’s just one idea of how to make the free ingredients unique and extra delicious.
Yes! If you prefer to use fresh vegetables, simply roast in the oven until fork tender before adding the cheese. Most veggies will take about 40-45 minutes to be fully roasted, and then put back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes with the cheese sauce.
There are so many options when you’re roasting vegetables. My favorites include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts. Roasting vegetables is one of the easiest ways to create a healthy and delicious side dish in no time.
You can roast anywhere from 350-450°F (lower temp will take a little longer and won’t get as crispy, higher temp will get crispy fast), but the ideal temperature to cook oven roasted veggies is 400°F. For this recipe, since we are using frozen vegetables that are already cooked, we are roasting with the cheese sauce at 425F to make things crispy, hot, and bubbly.
Generally, no, I don’t recommend covering veggies in the oven. They cook and crisp up beautifully uncovered.
However, if they haven’t quite finished cooking towards the end and you want to prevent them from getting too dark and crispy, you can loosely cover the sheet pan with aluminum foil for the last 5-10 minutes.

- Use frozen vegetables! There is no shame in keeping things simple. Grab your favorite frozen veggies and cook them quickly in the microwave. Toss them on a sheet pan with this easy homemade cheese sauce and you’re done!
- Try different cheeses. We are using sharp cheddar and mozzarella, but any cheese would work. I plan to try a spicy cheese like jalapeno cheddar or pepper jack next time.
- Reserve some cheese for dipping. We are big cheese lovers in our house so I always make some extra cheese sauce for dipping or slathering on our favorite meals. Try these Queso Smothered Fajitas!
