Roasted Vegetables with Chipotle Ranch Sauce

These roasted vegetables are cooked in 30 minutes, half the time of most roasted root vegetables making this a great weeknight dinner option to pair with sautéed chicken breasts or pork chops. The warm heat of canned chipotle peppers adds a hit of spice to traditional ranch dressing.

Ingredients

Servings  4   Serving Size   1 1/4

For the Chipotle Ranch Sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon minced, canned chipotle pepper
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce
  • 1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets (about 4 cups of florets)
  • 1 (8-ounce) container white button mushrooms, cleaned and cut into quarters
  • 1 pint container grape tomatoes
  • 4 cups diced zucchini (about 1 large zucchini)
  • 1 small red onion (finely diced)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

For the Chipotle Ranch Sauce:

  1. From a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, mince a part of 1 pepper to have 1 teaspoon. Add into a small bowl, along with 1 teaspoon of adobo sauce and the other ingredients: buttermilk, sour cream, chives, Italian seasoning, and black pepper.
  2. Use a fork to combine ingredients together. Taste, adding more chipotle depending on taste.
  3. When the vegetables are cooked, drizzle sauce over them. Serve.

For the Roasted Vegetables:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Onto a large foil-lined rimmed baking sheet (or two medium ones), add all the vegetables. Drizzle with oil, salt, and pepper; use a spatula to gently toss vegetables to coat.
  3. Roast vegetables in oven until fully cooked, around 30 minutes, shaking the pan once midway through the cooking process.

Cooking Tip: There will be a lot of leftover canned chipotle pepper. Consider pureeing the entire can and portion into a few Ziploc bags in the freezer to bring out when in need.

Keep it Healthy: Low-fat buttermilk is a great tool in your healthy cooking toolkit. Add to mashed potatoes in place of regular milk for a low-fat and tangy addition.

Tip: This chipotle ranch sauce doesn't just bring a wow factor to roasted veggies. It's also great with meat like chicken breasts, pork chops, or even fish like tilapia fillets.
