Vegetables really don't get simpler and tastier than this herbacious, roasted form.

Ingredients

  • ½ large onion, chopped in large pieces
  • 1 sweet potatoes, chopped in large cubes
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut in medium chunks
  • 5 red potatoes, chopped in large cubes
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped in 2-inch lengths (optional)
  • 4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley
  • handful basil, chopped
  • 6 stems fresh thyme (or ¼ dried)
  • 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Place all of the chopped ingredients in a large bowl and toss together with the seasonings and olive oil until the vegetables are well coated.
