Pork Loin Roast with Spiralized Root Veggies

Full disclosure: this was my first time making a pork loin roast.

And guess what? I nailed it on the first try!

Making a pork loin roast may look/sound fancy, but it’s an easy season-and-then-bake kind of meal (which are my favorites.)

And of course, I served it with my favorite kind of vegetable medley: a spiralized one.

I’ve been loving the spiralized vegetable medleys lately (did oyu see my Roasted Spiralized Vegetable and Quinoa Bowl?) It’s an easy and colorful way to prepare vegetables and it’s more fun on the palate than some chopped veggies. We’re better than that!

I love the seasonal flavors of this white meat pork roast – rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper is all you need to season and then it’s popped into the oven for about an hour to cook and let the juices pop. After a ten minute rest, the roast is done and ready to be sliced and placed over a gorgeous bed of spiralized veggies.

Pork Loin Roast with Spiralized Root Veggies

I used seasonal root veggies for the spiralized medley to help complement the rich flavors of rosemary and garlic. Other veggies that would work well here would be rutabaga, turnip, and carrot. I wouldn’t omit the onion – it adds a nice touch to the final flavors.

If you’re looking for a healthy meal to serve your family or an impressive dish for a dinner guest, this is it!

Pork Loin Roast with Spiralized Root Veggies

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 15 mins

Ingredients

  • For the pork roast:
  • 2 large garlic cloves pressed
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoons dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1.25 pound boneless pork loin roast well trimmed
  • For the spiralized veggies:
  • 2 large sweet potatoes or carrots
  • 2 large red onions
  • 2 large parsnips
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 13 x 9 x 2-inch roasting pan with foil. In a small bowl, mix together to the garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Using your fingers, rub the mixture all over the pork.
  • Place the pork, fat side down, in the roasting pan. Roast for 30 minutes, turn over and roast for another 20-30 minutes or until pork registers at 155°F. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes. While pork rests, pour any leftover pan juices into a small bowl or gravy boat.
  • After flipping the roast over, peel and spiralize the sweet potato (Blade C or D), onion (Blade A), and parsnip (Blade D). Lay the veggies out on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and drizzle with the oil. Season with thyme, salt and pepper and toss to combine. Roast for 15 minutes or until vegetables soften.
  • When pork has rested, slice crosswise into 1/3” thick slices. Arrange the slices on a platter and serve alongside the spiralized veggies.

I recently came across your blog and I have to tell you how thankful I am. I am a diabetic undergoing chemo for breast cancer. One of the meds given to counteract nausea raises blood sugar levels tremendously. I had a really hard time keeping things under control--until I discovered your blog and the Inspiralizer. I bought the Inspiralizer and your two cookbooks and am following your blog. Thank you so much for including such complete nutritional info; the carb count is especially helpful for diabetics. Last night I made the Pork Lo Mein (though I used leftover pork chops) and it was great. My husband and I both loved it. Tomorrow I'll try this Pork Loin Roast you've given here. I'm also making out my Thanksgiving meal plan and you can bet there will be a lot of Inspiralized goodies to go with the turkey. Thanks again for all you are doing to helping us all eat healthfully and with enjoyment.

Totally making this very soon, i love parsnips and have never attempted to make a pork roast before always tenderloin. Sounds yummy and easy :)
Jill R says:
My spiralizer has 3 blades: noodles, spaghetti, and fettuccini. How would your A,B,C,D blades translate to these?
Meaghan says:
Hi Jill, we do not have a guide for other spiralizers, but do your best to match the shapes your spiralizer makes up with the ones made by the Inspiralizer. In most cases, noodle shape is personal preference!

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
