Tips and Tricks
- I recommend using avocado oil here because we are roasting at high heat, and it is one of the only keto-friendly oils with a high enough smoke point to be safe.
- It doesn’t have to be exact, but aim for about 8 cups total of vegetables.
- Ensure that you cut the vegetables so that everything is as close as possible to a uniform size.
- Make sure that you don’t overcrowd the veggies as this can cause them to steam rather than roast. Use two baking sheets if needed.
- I usually use parchment on everything, but this is one recipe where I don’t. First, most parchment paper is safe to a maximum temperature of 420° F. Secondly, direct contact with the making sheet is necessary to get the charr you are looking for.

You can, but for the best texture, I recommend cooking just before serving. If you do want to cook this ahead, consider omitting the eggplant and zucchini as they lose their texture quickly and can get mushy.
