Roast Vegetables

About this recipe

Here’s something everyone should know. Roasted vegetables go great with any Sunday supper, and they’re a perfect way to get orange veggies into your diet. Plus they’re easy to make, lazybones!


Properly peel and cut up:

  • turnip,
  • sweet potatoes,
  • real potatoes,
  • butternut squash (remember to peel),
  • carrots,
  • onions.

Toss with olive oil and a tiny bit of water. Season with salt, pepper, chopped fresh garlic, and rosemary. 

Bake on cookie sheets at 425°F for approx. 1 hour.


  • The trick is the high heat.
  • Lots of people make a quick version with just carrots and potatoes.
  • You could also add yams, but don’t bother experimenting with Brussels sprouts or broccoli—they’re not orange.
    Try baby potatoes by themselves using only oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, or oregano and a tiny bit of water from washing.
