We don’t usually share too many stories in our blog posts here, but quickly wanted to share that over the years of being vegan, our thoughts behind meals have changed more and more.
Often times when you are first starting off vegan you are still in an omnivore mindset (meat, veg, grain) at most meals. However, as you begin to expand your mind, there is a shift that happens.
We can absolutely have a veggie focused meal and get all the nutrients and flavors we crave.

Gather your ingredients!
- Sweet Potato – are great for your health, having a lot of vitamins and nutrients in just one bite! They add volume, flavor, and deliciousness to this dish
- Red Onion– great for flavor but color as well
- Garlic – adds an aromatic component to the dish and helps with the flavor
- Baby Bok Choy – Adds greens plus a crunch to balance out all the flavors of the dish
- Chickpeas – are not only a great protein, but hold up well when roasted in the oven with vegetables due to their tough outer skin
- Oil – We are using oil to help with the roasting of the vegetables in the oven
- Spices – there’s a variety of spices that work to really pull this dish together and make the flavors pop. You’ll need garlic powder, smoked paprika, cinnamon, dried basil and thyme, cumin, clove, and fennel seeds, as well as salt and pepper
See my recipe card below for a complete list of the ingredients with measurements.
Substitutions and Variations:
- Sweet Potato – to keep anti-inflammatory we’d suggest yellow or purple potatoes over white, but all with roast well
- Red Onion– any yellow or white onion can also be used in this dish
- Baby Bok Choy – Regular bok choy will also work, but cut in half length wise for faster cooking. Also, halved Brussels sprouts would work as a sub. You could also do a combo of celery for crunch and spinach or kale for the leafy green
- Chickpeas – shelled edamame would be a great sub for the chickpeas because they will hold up the same length of time roasting. Otherwise, other beans could work as a sub, but would recommend adding them
- Oil – If you are oil free you can omit the oil, but your veggies won’t crisp up as much. We’d also recommend using something like a silipat mat.
- Spices -feel free to switch up the flavors by using different seasoning blends
Note: Other vegetables can be added and roasted, just make sure to cut them into sizes that will allow for roasting within the time frame of the steps.
Step by Step Instructions for Smoky Sheet Pan Vegetables:
To start you’re going to preheat the oven to 425°F (218°C).
Whisk all your spices together and set aside.
Add your chickpeas and cubed sweet potatoes into a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to coast each piece. Sprinkle over half the seasonings, then stir to combine. Add to your baking sheet and roast for 18-20 minutes.
While sweet potatoes and chickpeas are in the oven, add bok choy and onions to the same bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss, then remaining seasonings and stir again to combine well.
After your time is up for sweet potatoes, remove the pan, add the onions and bok choy and return to the oven for another 7-10 minutes.
You are looking for the potatoes to be fork tender and your bok choy should be slightly wilted by this time.
Remove and serve!
