Serves 4 

  • 3 pounds root vegetables and/or winter squash (beets, carrots, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, new potatoes, etc. I purchased mine at Finn Meadows Farm and Elmwood Stock Farm), peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 teaspoon dried herb blend
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper
  • Olive oil (I purchased mine from Mt. Kofinas at Findlay Market)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Handful of chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 425°. In a bowl, drizzle vegetables with a tablespoon or two of olive oil; sprinkle with herbs, salt and pepper and toss to coat thoroughly. Transfer the vegetables to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast for about 40 minutes, until vegetables are tender when pierced with the tip of a paring knife. Squeeze lemon juice over vegetables and scatter with parsley before serving.
