Roasting is a ridiculously easy cooking method and one that doesn’t strip food of key nutrients. It’s also an easy way to control the level of crispness versus tenderness of the food. In addition, roasting promotes natural sweetness often found in fruits and vegetables.

To make Healthy Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees F. Next, peel and chop, two to three large carrots, a small butternut squash, and a large sweet potato. (Try to chop into equal 2-inch chunks.) For additional flavor and natural sweetness, I also like to add chunks of apple.
NOTE: You may also consider adding other root vegetables such as turnips, radishes, beets, parsnips, onions, garlic, and ginger to the mix for additional nutrients and flavor.
Place the chunks into a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper (opt: add fresh rosemary and/or thyme). Gently toss.
Next, lightly grease a large sheet pan and pour the vegetables onto the pan. The veggies brown better if they are spaced out and not stacked.
Place the pan on the bottom rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Gently stir the vegetables, moving them all around the pan. If they stick to the pan, drizzle with a little more olive oil.
Bake for another 15- 20 minutes, or until the veggies are slightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork.
An easy, healthy and delicious way to prepare vegetables. Consider adding other root vegetables such as turnips, radishes, beets, parsnips, onions, garlic, and ginger to the mix for additional nutrients and flavor.
