Please do not cut root vegetables any smaller than size noted, as they tend to shrink while roasting. Also, don’t skimp on the olive oil because you’ll end up with dried out root vegetables otherwise.

INGREDIENTS

2 carrots, peeled, and cut into 1-1/4” cubes
2 russet potatoes, peeled, and cut into 1-1/4” cubes
1 sweet potato, peeled, and cut into 1-1/4” cubes
Vegetables prepped for roasting
1 small butternut squash, peeled and seeded, and cut into 1-1/4” cubes
1 purple onion, peeled, and cut into 1-1/4” pieces
1/3 cup olive oil
1 small clove of garlic, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil, and set aside.

Toss the cut vegetables with the olive oil, garlic, kosher salt, and pepper in a large Ziploc bag, mixing to coat, and place on prepared baking sheet in a single layer (see photograph of prepped vegetables). Roast for 30 to 40 minutes, until slightly caramelized and tender when poked with a paring knife – (be sure to turn vegetables midway through cooking process for even cooking).

Remove from oven, sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley, and serve immediately – Enjoy!

Tip: You can also grill these vegetables in a heatproof grilling basked (the type that has holes in it) for the same amount of cooking time.

A quick and easy favorite of mine, and I tend to add herbs and spices to them according to what I'm serving them with, i.e., with a steak where I used chopped rosemary leaves, then I'll do the same with the roasted vegetables as well...enjoy!
