Whether or not you’re doing a dietary reset, these Whole30 sheet pan meals are guaranteed to be a hit with the whole family! Plus, they make for an easy dinner and an even easier clean-up.
One of my biggest gripes with sheet pan meals is that often something gets overcooked or undercooked. So with these recipes, I’ve made sure that the final product is a delicious meal with perfectly cooked veggies and protein!
How do I make less of a mess?
I love sheet pan recipes because it means less dishes at the end of the day. But sometimes we want the clean-up to be even easier, and that’s why I often line my baking tray with parchment paper. If you don’t use parchment, you can line your trays with aluminum foil or brush on some avocado oil or ghee before placing the ingredients directly on the sheet pan.
How do I ensure even cooking?
One of the key tips to ensure even cooking of your vegetables is to make sure everything is cut into a similar size, and that the ingredients are laid out in a single layer. Also, if you’re substituting a vegetable or protein, you need to use one that has a similar cooking time as the ingredient you’re replacing.
Got a convection setting on your oven? Use it! The circulating hot air in a convection oven will cook everything more evenly. No convection oven? Rotate the tray and flip the ingredients once or twice during the cooking process.
