Roasted Root Vegetables
A stop in Vermont for dinner inspired this root vegetable roast. I like adding fresh apples to really bring up the flavor profile but the basic recipe is pretty good on its own. The ingredients are easy to find almost anywhere we are traveling and it is a quick addition to baked chicken or fish. So glad we found a portable glass oven to bake dishes like this in the RV!
1 Russet Potato
1 Sweet Potato
2 Fresh Beets
2 Large Carrots
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
2-3 Tbsp Olive Oil
Additions: This is a relatively mild dish, so I sometimes add red pepper flakes, a few sprigs of fresh thyme, chopped fresh rosemary, or even chopped apple to jazz it up.
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Peel sweet potato and chop into 2-inch chunks
Wash and chop russet potato (do not peel) into 2-inch chunks
Peel beets and remove greens. Chop into 2-inch chunks
Peel and chop carrots into 1/4 inch thick rounds
Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment.
Spread chopped veggies in a single layer on the sheet.
Drizzle oil, salt, and pepper over all veggies and toss the veggies to coat.
Put the baking sheet into the pre-heated oven and bake for 25 minutes or until veggies are fork tender.
