- Baby potatoes

- Coconut aminos
- Maple syrup
- Dried herbs
See recipe card for quantities.
Cut the veggies into similar-sized pieces for even cooking. Rub the chickpeas between layers of paper towel or a dish towel to dry.
Place the veggies and chickpeas on two separate baking sheets in a single layer so they get crispy in the oven.
Toss the chickpeas with olive oil for roasting.
Place the veggies on the middle rack, and the chickpeas on the upper rack, for the first 15 minutes of roasting.
Meanwhile, make the balsamic-maple glaze.
Place the veggies and chickpeas back in the oven, with the veggies on the upper rack, and the chickpeas on the rack below.
Roast for about 10 minutes more, or until the potatoes are just fork tender. Add salt to taste.
Health tip: The firmer your roast potatoes, the less impact they have on blood sugar levels.
- Veggies - most firm veggies will work, such as sweet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, and beets
- Chickpeas - instead of chickpeas, use pressed tofu cut into 1-inch cubes (omit the oil and toss in cornstarch for roasting)
- Coconut aminos - use tamari instead if you don't have any (adjust maple syrup accordingly)
- Herbs - use fresh herbs instead of dried (use larger quantities)
- Spicy - add sriracha to the balsamic-maple glaze for a kick
- Deluxe - Drizzle with a creamy dressing for serving

Refrigerate any remaining veggies and chickpeas in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven at 350ºF until warmed through, or serve cold in a salad.
These ingredients don't stand up well to freezing.
