Roasted Vegetables


A classic recipe that is so easy and is a fantastically delicious way to enjoy vegetables or potatoes.


All sturdier vegetables will work perfectly like:
Root vegetables like beets, carrots, parsnips, potatoes
Crucifer family of broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts
Winter squash like acorn, butternut, etc.

Amount is how much you want, usually about 4 ounces per person

Extra virgin olive oil - 2 tablespoons or more
Thyme or Rosemary - dried or fresh (optional)
Salt or pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Cut root vegetables into one inch cubes. Cut other vegetables into about the same size as the root vegetables. Place on baking sheet.
  3. Dribble one tablespoon of olive oil over vegetables along with seasonings and herbs. With your hands, mix all the ingredients together. If too dry, add another tablespoon of olive oil - but you don't want your vegetables too oily.
  4. Roast for 20 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
