Autumn Roasted Vegetables

Roasting vegetables is a great way to prepare vegetables in a healthy way while bringing out the natural flavors. This vegetable dish is a perfect side dish for any entrée and is very easy to prepare. This technique works with just about any vegetable and you can customize this recipe to suit your personal taste by simply changing the vegetables.

This dish always ends up on my Thanksgiving table and is one of the first to disappear. I like to use sea salt while roasting for maximum flavor, but table salt works beautifully as well.

Ingredients
1 cup of broccoli florets
1 cup cauliflower florets
1 carrot, peeled and cubed
1 parsnip
1 Yukon Gold potato cubed
1 cup of Brussels sprouts
1 red onion, quartered
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees F (245 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, combine the squash, red bell peppers, sweet potato, and Yukon Gold potatoes. Separate the red onion quarters into pieces, and add them to the mixture.
3. In a small bowl, stir together thyme, rosemary, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Toss with vegetables until they are coated. Spread evenly on a large roasting pan.
4. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes, or until vegetables are cooked through and browned.
