Roasted Rosemary Root Vegetables
I’m continuing my celebration of all things Fall today with this recipe for Roasted Rosemary Root Vegetables.
This side dish is a feast for the eyes and belly! It’s so colorful and gorgeous. I’m such a sucker for colorful food, aren’t you?
Roasting brings out so much flavor. It’s far and away my favorite way to prepare any and all veggies. If you feel the same you’ll want to check out my other roasted vegetable recipes. I’ll include links to some of them at the bottom of the page.
Now let’s talk beets. Are you pro-beets are anti-beets? Y’all, this is a serious question. I am not a huge fan of beets on their own but I’ve learned that I do enjoy them when combined with other vegetables. The earthiness of the beet is especially good when paired with the sweetness of carrots and sweet potatoes.
Sweet potatoes, gold potatoes (my favorite), carrots, onion, and butternut squash all complement the beets beautifully.
The preparation for this dish is simple. Just chop and toss on the baking sheet. You can usually find your butternut squash in the produce section already peeled, seeded, and diced! For this particular recipe I totally take advantage of that shortcut and purchase the container of fresh cubed butternut squash.
A little olive oil, salt, and a high oven temperature bring out all the yumminess. Your veggies come out of the oven glistening and a little brown. They’re tender to the touch and creamy on the inside.
Top with fresh rosemary and you have a perfect side dish that’s sure to brighten up your plate!
