Ingredients

For Tomatoes

For Butternut Squash

For Asparagus

For Salmon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Tomatoes: Rinse and pat your tomatoes dry before tossing the oil, salt, pepper and garlic until evenly coated and place on a one side of a tray.
  • Butternut Squash: Toss the cubed butternut squash in the oil, salt, pepper and garlic until evenly coated and place on the other half of the tray with the tomatoes. 
  • Place the tray with tomatoes and squash in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  • Asparagus: Toss the washed and trimmed asparagus with the oil, salt, pepper, and garlic and place on one end of a second tray.
  • Salmon: Combine the oil, butter, salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, cayenne, oregano, parsley, onion powder and lemon juice together. Slash the salmon diagonally five or six times and evenly cover in the herb-butter mixture.
  • Place the tray with the asparagus and salmon in the oven for 15 minutes and sprinkle the chopped bacon over the butternut squash.
  • When both trays have reached their bake times, remove them from the oven. Sprinkle your shredded cheese over the squash and allow the residual heat to melt it.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Cut your squash into small cubes to ensure that they cook faster and more evenly.
  • An easy method to seasoning your veggies is to use one bowl to add your seasoning and veggies to and tossing them one batch (veggie) at a time. Start with the tomatoes, squash, asparagus and end with the salmon, if there is excess seasoning in the bowl it can be used up by incorporating it into the herbed rub for the salmon.
  • Once you set the squash and tomatoes into the oven for 20 minutes use the 5 minute between the bake times to prep the asparagus and salmon tray (that takes 15 minutes), that way both trays come out the oven at once.
  • The addition of the bacon and cheese is honestly optional but adds a great layer of flavor and indulgent richness to the sweet oven roasted squash.
