How to Roast Cauliflower and Sweet Potato on a Single Pan
The key to making roasted cauliflower and sweet potato together on one sheet pan is to cut each veggie to the right size.
For the sweet potato, you want 1" cubes. These smaller pieces will cook up more quickly, so they'll keep pace with the cauliflower. You can peel the sweet potato or leave it unpeeled.
Cauliflower cooks up more quickly than sweet potato, so go for larger florets here. Think two baby carrots, sitting side-by-side. That's the perfect floret size for this recipe.
What I love most about a sheet pan recipe is that you can truly do it all in one dish. Don't bother tossing the veggies with the soy sauce, oil, and spices in a bowl. Do it right on the sheet pan.
Don't you just love one less thing to wash when supper is over?
Once you toss everything together, just stick the pan in the oven and bake.

How to Store and Reheat
Got leftovers? No problem! They'll keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
To reheat, you can warm the veggies up in a microwave-safe container for about a minute, depending on the strength of your microwave. You can also warm them in the oven at 350F for 10 minutes, or until they're heated through.
